Soon you’ll be able to treat yo self to a whole new season of the Amy Poehler-fronted Parks And Recreation, with the NBC program being renewed for a seventh hilarious season.
NBC president and chairman Robert Greenblatt confirmed that the show will push on into a seventh season when pressed by journalists at the recent Television Critics Association panel. Greenblatt initially said that he was “bullish” on the show’s future, despite its inconsistent ratings in the face of mostly favourable reviews, before explicitly stating: “Parks & Recreation is going to have a seventh season.”
Poehler has also inked a new three-year deal with the network, which includes a new comedy pilot called Old Soul. The show will star Orange Is The New Black actress Natasha Lyonne and is currently being written by Poehler.
The date for Parks And Recreation‘s season seven premiere is yet to be announced. The season six finale Ann and Chris will air on Thursday, 30th January in the US. Alongside Poehler, the program also stars Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Jim O’Heir, Retta, Adam Scott and Rob Lowe.
