Leslie Knope wants to let you in on a secret… On April 30, #ParksAndRec is returning to NBC for “A Parks and Recreation Special”.

Amy Poehler, Rahida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Retta, and Jim O’Heir are set to reprise their roles in a telecast that’s raising money for Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.
“Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money,” Michael Schur explains in a statement. “I sent a hopeful email to the cast and they all got back to me within 45 minutes. Our old Parks and Rec team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life and we hope everyone enjoyed it. And donates!”
