Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman Would Totally Be Up For A ‘Parks And Rec’ Reboot
Parks and Recreation co-stars/good buddies Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman stopped by Ellen DeGeneres‘ couch on Thursday. This was Offerman’s first ever appearance on Ellen, which of course meant he had to face the show’s initiation tradition: the Spank Wagon!
Unfortunately (but not that unfortunately), the tradition is actually revealing shirtless pictures of the guest, although Amy was sure to give Nick a few quick slaps on the bottom.
The discussion quickly turned to the reboot mania that is so hot right now. Probably everyone in the world has six degrees of separation or less from someone who is involved in a reboot. Offerman is only one degree removed, as he is married to Will & Grace‘s Megan Mullally.
So when DeGeneres asked the erstwhile Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson if they would be up for getting the Pawnee gang back together, they said of course they would, but only under one condition: Beyoncé would have to play the mayor.
Now, of course, there is also the small matter of NBC, or some other network, having to express interest in a reboot in the first place. Then there is the question of whether or not it is actually a good idea. Sure, Parks & Rec is one of the best sitcoms of all time, but it has already had a plentiful seven-season run and went off the air only three years ago with a richly satisfying finale, so maybe give it at least another year before we start talking reboot.
