‘Parks and Rec’ to return for scripted reunion special

The telecast is raising money for Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund

Parks and Recreation is making a return to NBC for a scripted reunion special on April 30th at 8:30 p.m. Eastern.

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!”
