Amy Poehler And Nick Offerman Say They're Up For A 'Parks And Rec' Reboot

Parks and Recreation was one of those feel good shows that you could pop on any episode and just thoroughly enjoy.


The mockumentary ran for seven seasons, with 125 episodes and sadly, in 2015, we had to say goodbye to Leslie Knope, Ann Perkins, Tom Haverford, Ron Swanson, April Ludgate, Andy Dwyer and all the good people of Pawnee, Indiana.


The final episode of the series wrapped up everything pretty nicely, showing everyone going on to do bigger and better things.

But it appears that the book that is Parks and Rec might not be fully shut.


At least, that's according to Amy Poehler, who played Leslie, and Nick Offerman, who played the ever grumpy Ron. The pair had a chat with Ellen DeGeneres, who asked the them whether they'd like to see the show rebooted.


Initially, Nick said that the team was committed to come back as long as singer Beyonce would play the mayor, which everyone knows just would not happen.

After a few laughs, Ellen pushed them more and Amy replied: "I'll speak for everybody and say we would all do it. I think we would all do it someday. It would be amazing."


It might be a bit difficult getting Chris Pratt on board, considering he's got his hands full with the Jurassic Park and Guardians of the Galaxy/Avengers franchises - which is a hell of a lot to have on one plate.


The cast and crew have been bugged about bringing back Parks and Rec since it ended in 2015. Offerman was asked by the Daily Beast at this year's South By South West Festival, and he said: "They're bringing every show back now, maybe they'll want to bring our show back. If that were ever to occur, it would be thanks to brains much larger than mine.

"Brains that I trust with my life. And so, if Mike Schur and Amy Poehler want to bring the show back and they think it's a good idea, I will certainly sign on...I will eat more meat at their behest."

Well now at least we know Amy is keen.

The NBC Network has been generous to the big-ticket items of yesteryear, giving invitations to 30 Rock and The Office to reboot their shows. But they always run the risk of ruining the memory that they created over so many years so the advice would be to tread carefully.
