'Parks & Recreation' Cast Reuniting for Scripted Special Taking Place in Social Distancing Era

The cast of the beloved NBC series Parks and Recreation will be reuniting for a scripted special that will raise money for food banks amid the ongoing health crisis.

Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Retta, and Jim O’Heir are all confirmed to reprise their roles in the special, which will air on Thursday, April 30 at 8:30pm ET on NBC.

Here’s a synopsis of the special (via TV Line): “Pawnee’s most dedicated civil servant, Leslie Knope, is determined to stay connected to her friends in a time of social distancing.”

Michael Schur, the executive producer of the series, said, “Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money. I sent a hopeful email to the cast, and they all got back to me within 45 minutes. Our old Parks and Rec team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life, and we hope everyone enjoys it. And donates!”

Fans are encouraged to donate to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund during the special. NBCUniversal, the Parks and Rec cast, and sponsors State Farm and Subaru of America will be matching donations up to $500,000 as well.
