Parks and Recreation Cast as Bob's Burgers Characters

Parks and Recreation is fresh off cheering everyone up with their coronavirus relief reunion special (which you can watch online for free right now). Not only was it an uplifting return of the comedy series that has been off the air for years, but it resulted in Subaru and State Farm each giving $150,000 in donations to COVID-19 relief efforts, as well as another $500,000 from the cast of the series.

parks and recreation reunion

What would Leslie Knope do during the coronavirus pandemic? It’s an easy thing to imagine but a little harder to actually make into reality, as Parks and Recreation co-creator Mike Schur revealed ahead of the highly anticipated reunion special. Parks and Recreation is returning for a one-time coronavirus episode that will reunite the original cast of the beloved NBC sitcom and raise funds for frontline efforts against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Parks and Recreation reunion special already seemed like a miraculous thing to happen, considering the cast had gone their separate ways (some to Hollywood superstardom) and Schur wasn’t interested in revisiting the series after the show “felt like it had made” its point. But how quickly the episode came together to air this Thursday feels like even more of a miracle. And according to Schur, it was a labor of love and lots of “goodwill volunteer work.”
