The Cast of Parks and Recreation Reunites at PaleyFest

The Paley Center For Media's 2019 PaleyFest LA - "Parks And Recreation" 10th Anniversary Reunion

The cast of Parks and Recreation reunited at PaleyFest in Los Angeles on Thursday (March 21, 2019) to celebrate the show’s 10th anniversary and rehash old stories, relive the best jokes, and, of course, answer whether a revival is a possibility in the near future.

The panel was moderated by Patton Oswalt, who memorably appeared on the NBC comedy, and featured show creator Michael Schur, stars Amy Poehler (Leslie Knope), Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson), Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins), Chris Pratt (Andy Dwyer), Adam Scott (Ben Wyatt), Aubrey Plaza (April Ludgate), Aziz Ansari (Tom Haverford), Rob Lowe (Chris Traeger), Retta (Donna Meagle), and Jim O’Heir (Jerry Gergich).

Asked about the possibility of an on-screen return, Parks and Recreation co-creator Michael Schur outlined the one condition that might convince the main cast and showrunners to revive the show.

“I think everyone on this stage would want to feel there’s a story to be told,” Schur said. “The show was about the power of public service and doing good with a team. I don’t think we left anything on the table.”

Poehler told The Hollywood Reporter prior to the panel that she’d be “down” for a reunion if Schur green-lit the idea.

“I am so not cool, so from minute one I’ve been like I’m down. Tell me where to go, I’ll clear my schedule” Poehler said about her feelings towards a revival.

“I mean, Mike Schur currently produces and writes on, I think, 14 shows, so it’ll really be whenever he is ‘tech avail,’ as we like to say in the biz. But yeah, I’m ready.”
