After six seasons of getting to know—and begrudgingly love—the quirky residents of the morbidly obese, fictional city of Pawnee, Indiana, it appears fans of the show will have to spend the seventh season saying goodbye.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly following last night’s season finale of Parks and Recreation, executive producer Michael Schur confirmed what many have suspected: that next season will “fairly likely” be the show’s last.
Without spoiling the plot twists that took place in last night’s hour-long episode, there will certainly be a lot of changes for viewers to get used to when the show returns in the fall. While Schur says the team will not begin definitively planning the next season for another month, he did say that the ending of last night’s episode “is not a yank. We are not teasing something that we are not going to then pay off.”
While there is so much more to be discussed, we don’t want to ruin any of the surprises for you. We’ll just let it be for now, but do yourself a favor and check out the finale ASAP.
