Throughout this seventh and final season of Parks and Recreation, which unfortunately wraps up tonight, Michael Schur and the rest of the writers, some of whom we spoke to in our oral history, have been having fun guessing what life’s going to be like in 2017. It’s kind of like Back to the Future Part II, but instead of hoverboards, phones turn into skateboards. The Chicago Cubs also make it to the World Series in both scenarios. How many of their predictions will come true? Twenty-two months will only tell, but I’ve got a good feeling about Hitch 2: Son of a Hitch, starring Jaden Smith. Here’s the complete collection of Parks predictions for 2017.

1. HOLOGRAM PHONES.
