Ron Swanson’s 15 Most Enlightening GIFs From ‘Parks And Recreation’ Season 5

By: 05.05.13  •  16 Comments

In a post-season finale interview with Entertainment Weekly, Parks and Recreation creator Ken Tremendous, er, Michael Schur said a sixth season of NBC’s best sitcom is “likely.”

While there’s no official word from NBC, signs and buzz point to a return visit to Pawnee. “I’ve been cautiously optimistic for five straight years, that’s not going to change,” says Schur. “I fully believe that we will be back next year, but until they actually make that phone call, I never like to say it’s a sure thing.” (Via)

There are a plethora of reasons why Parks not returning would be terrible — many of which involve waffles and mouse rats — but the biggest is: there’s a new Swanson on the way. Now, I’m not going to refer to NBC baby killers, but…well, just renew the damn show, already. Until the official announcement comes, though, let’s take a look at some of the proud soon-to-be papa’s finest, most enlightening moments from season five.
