It’s hard to believe NBC’s Parks and Recreation will be ending in just a few short months. The peacock network has the comedy set to hit the schedule at midseason. After the short, 13-episode final season airs, the fans will have to say goodbye to the quirky Indiana-set show. Apparently, some of the cast is having trouble saying goodbye to Parks and Recreation, too. Recently, Amy Poehler spoke out to say she’s having trouble with the show ending. In fact, she has a very specific and very crazy fantasy last day on the set in mind.
On Monday night, Poehler admitted to David Letterman on The Late Show that she often dreams of committing arson on her last day on the Parks and Rec set.
“I have to say, I’m not very good with endings, so I fear that I’m gonna misbehave a little bit at the ending. Like I do have these fantasies where I just tell everybody what I really think of them and then hit on the camera department and then light the set on fire. But I think it will be nice.”
She’s a funny lady, that Amy Poehler. Still, somehow I have no problem seeing her running around with a gas can and a maniacal glint in her eye, although she had better refrain from committing arson if she wants to land another pilot in the future. (Granted, she does also mention to Letterman that she plans to take it easy for a while after Parks and Recreation ends.)
We’re about to get into spoilers if you haven’t caught up on last season, yet. But seriously, why haven’t you caught up on last season, yet?
It's been fairly hard to tell whether or not Parks and Recreation plans to go out with a bang or a more sentimental ending. The comedy took a gutsy line at the end of Season 6, deciding to time hop three years into the future during the finale. When last we left Leslie Knope, Ron Swanson and the gang, Leslie and Ben had triplets and Leslie had taken a new job working for the National Parks Department, moving the entire operation to Pawnee. Things are definitely going to be different during the final season, and I can’t wait to see what NBC has in store for the series.
The network has obviously signed on for a seventh season of Parks and Recreation, which is expected to debut in 2015. We’ll let you know as soon as NBC assigns the show a premiere date. In the meantime, if you would like to catch the rest of the Letterman interview, hop over to the next page.
