Five years after the final episode of Parks and Recreation aired, the cast is coming back together for one 30-minute scripted special to raise money for coronavirus charity.

The show is set to air on April 30, and will feature most of the original cast, including Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir and Retta. Guest stars might pop-up too.

The special is lead by the show’s creator, Michael Shur, and will reportedly follow the story of Leslie Knope (Poehler) struggling with social distancing.

The money raised by the special will go to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

In a statement, Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC said: “In such uncertain times, we can’t think of anyone better than Leslie Knope to unite our country with her unbridled enthusiasm and compassion.”

Fans were definitely excited about the news:
