It's been three years since we tearfully bid adieu to Parks and Recreation, and we've pretty much been pining for a reboot ever since the emotional series finale aired. As it turns out, dedicated fans aren't the only ones on board with the idea of reuniting Pawnee's finest — leading lady Amy Poehler is, too. "I'm technically available," Poehler said at the 10th anniversary celebration dinner of Smart Girls, an organisation she founded. "I have like six of Leslie's blazers in my closet, so anytime."
From 2009 to 2015, Poehler played the role of Leslie Knope, the competitive deputy director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, a proud waffle lover, and an even prouder feminist. When the NBC sitcom ended, there were hints that Leslie would go on to become the president. While addressing the possibility of a reunion, Poehler said she hadn't given much thought to Leslie's storyline, adding that maybe she'd be "president of the moon."
Of course, a reboot wouldn't be viable without a little help from the show's co-creator, Mike Schur, who's currently tied up with another popular show. "Our king is busy doing his highly successful show, The Good Place," Poehler explained."We really can't jump without Mike. So when Mike is good and ready, I'm sure we'll show up like good soldiers."
This isn't the first time stars from the NBC comedy have teased the likelihood of a reunion. Back in May, Nick Offerman and Poehler stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and said that it could happen "any time," joking that Beyoncé would have to play the mayor of Pawnee in order for the series to make a comeback. Hah, if only! In all seriousness, we need Leslie now more than ever, so NBC, what are you waiting for?!
