Parks and Recreation will say farewell with what NBC is promoting as "a seven-week comedy event."
The beloved series returns for its seventh and final season Tuesday, Jan. 13, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, just two days after the Golden Globe Awards, hosted once again by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Back-to-back episodes will air each week, culminating in the one-hour finale on Tuesday, Feb. 24, following The Voice.
“Mike Schur and Amy Poehler, along with their incredible producers, cast, and crew, have given us one of the great television comedies of all time, and we’re inordinately proud of Parks and Recreation,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. “In an effort to give it the send-off it deserves, we wanted to ‘eventize’ the final season to maximize the impact of these episodes, which really do take the show to a new level."
The acclaimed comedy also stars Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Jim O’Heir and Retta.
