Ok, so it wasn’t flat out stated, but it kind of was. At the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, NBC President Robert Greenblatt said, “I’m going to go out on a limb: Parks & Rec is going to have a seventh season.”
So, while he may have gone out on a limb, network presidents normally aren’t the people who end up eating their words, so good, bad or otherwise, it sounds like Knope and company will be back.
Parks and Recreation has been stronger than normal this year, as has Community. However, Community didn’t get the same strength of endorsement from Greenblatt, meaning that, as always, it’s fate is unknown. “Six seasons and a movie,” the fans’ de facto rallying cry, is actually within sight. Who knew?
