Behind the Scenes of “Parks and Rec” Final Season
Yes, it’s true: Parks and Recreation begins its final season next Tuesday. But before you run off to drown your sorrows in a tall stack of waffles, check out this exclusive trailer for a new NBC.com web series chronicling the last days on set for the beloved Pawnee crew.
You get to see castmates Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, and Aziz Ansari goofing around on-camera; the whole cast gathered together for a table read; Amy Poehler (with bangs!) confessing that she’s in “complete denial” that the show is ending; co-star Jim O’Heir (aka Jerry) getting shut out of a shooting location, Jerry-style; a sneak peek at upcoming location shoots in Chicago and Washington, D.C.; Nick Offerman giving us a tour of the show’s set design; and Poehler comparing showrunner Mike Schur to “Scorsese.” (Fancy!)
Most importantly, we get to spend just a little more time with our Pawnee pals before Parks and Rec shuts down for good. Forever. Sigh. Where are those waffles?
The final season of Parks and Recreation premieres Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 8 p.m. on NBC.

The highly-anticipated one-hour finale will air behind ‘The Voice’ in order to lead the largest audience possible into what promises to be a very special hour of television.”
