Maybe Amy Poehler’s dream is going to come true after all. Today was NBC’s turn at the TCAs — we’ll have a full recap later today, but here’s the most important bit of news to come out of Robert Greenblatt’s session with the Perd-less press: there’s going to be another season of Parks and Recreation.
NBC Chairman made the announcement when pressed by critics at TCA about the future of well reviewed by ratings-challenged Parks & Recreation. He initially said he was “bullish” on the show’s chances before going a step further, stating that “Parks & Recreation is going to have a seventh season.”
NBC entertainment president Jennifer Salke was quick to jump in and note that a renewal for Parks & Recreation does not impact a pickup decision on Community, which NBC brass also like but will evaluate their comedy plans for next season before making a decision. (Via)
Phew. That gives us another year to yell about Orin being below Joan. (But seriously, I’m happy for more Parks in my life, but I’m worried that the show is running short on new ideas. Much of this season has been good, but rarely great, which is what we’ve come to expect from Parks. Let’s just say I wouldn’t be upset if Ron retired after seven seasons.)
