Amy Poehler Is Definitely Game For A 'Parks And Recreation' Reboot

Helen Storms

NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation had a slow beginning, but grew to be one of the most popular shows on television, due, in large, to its hilarious cast and uplifting storyline. Amy Poehler played the main character Leslie Knope, an ambitious deputy director of the parks department in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana. Knope had a passion for making her hometown the best it could be and was determined to bring her often less-than-enthusiastic coworkers along for the ride. The series premiered in 2009 and concluded after its seventh season in February of 2015. At long last, there has finally been some discussion of a possible reboot, according to CNN.

For many diehard fans, this popular series ended far too soon. Despite the fact that the major storylines seemed to have been wrapped up neatly in the finale episode, many were left wanting more, apparently even the cast. Poehler worked alongside a star-studded cast including Rashida Jones, Adam Scott, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, and Chris Pratt.

"Mike Schur is currently working on about five shows. Whenever Mike is ready, I'll put on my suit again for sure. 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. 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."
"Oh, sure. I'll do anything Parks and Rec as long as the brass is behind it. I mean, the gifts that that show has brought to me I'm still collecting every day, and I don't imagine I'll ever feel that I've fully repaid them."
