Don’t worry, Parks and Recreation fans. It doesn’t look like Leslie Knope will be leaving Pawnee, Indiana any time soon.
The hit comedy is set to be renewed for a seventh season, revealed NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday.
After having been a little sheepish about the future of the show, Greenblatt said, “I’m going out on a limb. Parks and Rec is going to have a seventh season.”
Following star Amy Poehler’s recent Golden Globes win for her work in Parks and Recreation (not to mention her successful co-hosting of the awards themselves) the news that the cult US comedy will be renewed comes as no surprise.
NBC also announced that it had greenlit a comedy pilot created and executive produced by Poehler. The new series, entitled Old Soul, comes in conjunction with a new overall three-year deal between Poehler and the network.
Parks and Recreation follows Poehler’s character Leslie Knope, a perky government official at a fictional Indiana parks department. It airs in the UK on BBC4, with series three due later in 2014.
