The Parks and Recreation cast are no strangers to reunions. Following the airing of its last episode in 2015, we’ve seen Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman team up for a game show and the ladies of Pawnee have been known to get together for Galentine’s Day. Fans patiently awaiting the next reunion will have their patience rewarded tonight, as the cast of Parks and Rec reunite for a special 30-minute scripted episode. In the name of charity and keeping in touch with friends during a very isolating time, the one-time episode follows Leslie Knope as she tries to “stay connected to her friends in a time of social distancing”.
Money raised during the reunion special will go to the charity Feeding America, a hunger-relief organization working to bring food and other basic needs to Americans who need it. The Parks and Recreation producers and cast along with State Farm, Subaru of America, and NBC will match all the money donated during the airing of the episode, so if you love Parks and Rec and raising money for a good cause, you won’t want to miss it.
Here’s how to watch the Parks and Recreation Reunion special, as well as which cast members you can expect to see and how you can donate.
