“Parks and Recreation” Final Season to Premiere Tuesday, January 13th
In the first TV event of the new year, NBC is giving its landmark comedy “Parks and Recreation” a sendoff that will maximize the show’s cultural impact. The seventh and final season of this critically-acclaimed and beloved series will begin Tuesday, Jan. 13 with back-to-back episodes (8-9 p.m. ET/PT) and continue with back-to-back episodes each week until the hourlong series finale on Tuesday, Feb. 24 following “The Voice.”
The return of the series, in fact, will be scheduled to premiere in the afterglow of the Jan. 11 “72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards,” co-hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
“Mike Schur and Amy Poehler, along with their incredible producers, cast, and crew, have given us one of the great television comedies of all time, and we’re inordinately proud of ‘Parks and Recreation,’” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. “In an effort to give it the send-off it deserves, we wanted to ‘eventize’ the final season to maximize the impact of these episodes, which really do take the show to a new level. 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.”
“Critics, viewers and all of us at NBC fell in love with this endearing, funny, heartfelt show and its authentic cast of characters,” added Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “After seven amazing seasons, saying goodbye to the folks of Pawnee will be bittersweet, so we want to give the show and its fans the most impactful final season possible.”
Starring Golden Globe winner Amy Poehler as a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Ind., “Parks and Recreation” has been Emmy Award nominated and is a winner of the Television Critics Assn. Award for best comedy, AFI Award, American Comedy Award and the highly prestigious Peabody Award.
The series also stars Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Jim O’Heir and Retta.

Golden Globes 2015 Promo
Everyone wants to know what Tina and Amy will wear while hosting the Golden Globes, Sunday, January 11 on NBC.
Amy Poehler on Life and Looks: ‘I Don’t Like Pretending Things Are Perfect’
Amy Poehler will be the first to tell you: She’s not some Hollywood babe.
And that’s just fine.
“In a shallow business, I just had to come to terms with being really okay with not being … symmetrical,” the Parks and Recreation star tells PEOPLE. “You can spend your life trying to be [perfect], and you can tweak and nip and tuck, and then be afraid to move your face.”
Of course, staying confident is a tricky balancing act.
“There’s a line between feeling healthy, strong and sexy and feeling good about yourself, and being worried about how you measure up,” says Poehler, 43, whose illuminating and hilarious memoir, Yes Please, is exclusively excerpted in this week’s PEOPLE.
“Some days I wake up and I’m just like, ‘All right, I’m feelin’ really good,’ and some days I loathe myself. Just like everyone else.”
And on those days, she admits, neither fame nor fortune gives her a leg up.
“It’s so funny because it doesn’t matter what you do, whether you have your picture in a magazine or you don’t, there are days where you’re just feeling it and other days where you look at yourself and say, ‘Oh my god, who is that old woman in the store window? Oh my god, it’s me!’ ”
The Golden Globe winner credits her mother and father with helping instill a healthy sense of self-worth early in life.
“My parents encouraged me, and I did not have a mother who criticized me about what I looked like or wore,” says Poehler, who enjoyed a “lucky childhood” growing up outside of Boston. “She just never told me that I looked fat, and there was never a huge focus on looks – now what that led to was really terribly documented high school [years]!”
Perspective from Her Children
These days, Poehler also gleans perspective from her kids, sons Archie, nearly 6, and Abel, 4, with her ex-husband Will Arnett.
“They really teach you to stay in the moment, since kids don’t really care about the past or the future, and they’re not interested in hoping for what will come. They’re ‘let’s play now!’ ” she says.
That now also happens to be pretty great. “The older I get, I feel like the better my life has gotten,” says Poehler, who has been dating actor-comedian Nick Kroll since 2013.
“I like hard work and I don’t like pretending things are perfect,” she says – though the star has few complaints.
“I wouldn’t give anything to be back in my 20s at all. Maybe I wouldn’t mind the amount of sleep I got then or for my stomach to be smaller, but mentally, no way.”
For more of Amy Poehler’s interview and to read an exclusive excerpt from her memoir, Yes Please, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.
Amy Poehler to produce church-themed comedy for NBC
Amy Poehler is reteaming with fellow Parks And Recreation executive producer Aisha Muharrar to create another single-camera sitcom for NBC. In it, a young agnostic woman inherits a church and the colorful ensemble of characters within. The show is being described as a workplace comedy, so Parks comparisons are apt, but it seems unlikely that Poehler will star in the series, and it’s unknown whether NBC is grooming the show to replace Parks on the schedule, once that show wraps later this year.
Muharrar, who began working on Parks as a staff writer and penned several episodes—including the most recent season finale—will write the as-yet-untitled new series.
