Parks and Recreation

Story by Jack Foley

PARKS and Recreation has been renewed for a sixth season.

The Amy Poehler ensemble follows the fortunes of a rag-tag group of government employees and has proved to be a launching pad for its cast, with co-stars Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones and Chris Pratt all managing to lands deals for films, books, comedy tours and more.

The renewal comes at a time when NBC is making decisions about the fate of several shows, as well as announcing a trio of new ones.

Community‘s future continues to hang in the balance, as does Guys With Kids, The New Normal and Go On – but Whitney and 1600 Penn have been cancelled and Up All Night is considered as good as.

The three new half an hour shows are Jason Katims’ About A Boy, Sean Hayes’ Sean Saves The World and Parker Posey vehicle The Family Guide.
