Let’s head to J.J.’s Diner for some celebratory waffles: NBC is committing to a Season 7 for beloved comedy “Parks and Recreation.”
During the executive session at NBC’s winter TCA press tour day on Sunday (Jan. 19), Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, fielded questions regarding the future of the Amy Poehler comedy. He played coy, initially, only offering that he felt “bullish” regarding the returns of both “Parks” and “Community.”
Pressed further by reporters in the room, Greenblatt says, “I’ll go out on a limb: ‘Parks and Rec’ will have a seventh season.”
Greenblatt admitted to struggles with the NBC’s Thursday night comedy lineup, saying the network would be looking at all options for the evening and examining how much comedy will be on the schedule for the fall 2014 season.
Thankfully, it at least seems “Parks and Rec” will be there.
