Amy Poehler & 'Parks & Rec' Team Reveal If a Revival Might Happen One Day

Amy Poehler waves to the crowd while walking on stage for the Parks and Recreation reunion panel during 2019 PaleyFest on Thursday (March 21) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The Emmy-winning actress was joined at the event by her former co-stars Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Retta, Jim O’Heir, and Rob Lowe.

The panel was moderated by Patton Oswalt, who was a guest star on the series.

During the event, series co-creator Mike Schur opened up about the possibility of a revival.

“Everyone on this stage — and like 6 other people — would have to feel like there was a story that needed to be told,” he said (via THR).

“The show had an argument to make,” he added. “The argument was about teamwork and friendship and positivity being optimistic and not getting cynical and believing that people can do good and believing in the power of public service and believing that if you work hard and you put your head down and believe in the people around you who are part of your team, that good things are possible. That you’ll achieve the things you want to achieve, and I don’t feel like we left anything on the table. I feel like the show sort of made its argument. And we also — maybe this was like a preventative measure or something — we did jumped ahead to the year, like, 2074.”

Amy said on the red carpet that she would be down for a revival.

“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,” she said. “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.”

FYI: Aubrey is wearing a Jonathan Simkhai dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, Zoe Chicco earrings, and State Property rings.
