Chris Pratt has spoken about the possibility of a Parks And Recreation reunion series or movie, saying that he “would never rule it out”.
Parks And Recreation ran for seven seasons on NBC until 2015. It launched the careers of Pratt, Amy Poehler, Aziz Anzari and Rashida Jones.
The show was created by writing partners Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, who had previously helped transfer The Office from Ricky Gervais’ original into its US version. Schur has since created Andy Samberg sitcom Brooklyn Nine Nine, while Daniels is working on new alien abduction sitcom The Group with chatshow host Conan O’Brien.
Pratt recently appeared on Sirius XM radio show Sway’s Universe when he was asked about the future of the show, to which he said: “Well, it’s hard to say. I would never rule it out. There’s jobs I’ve done in the past where I could safely say I would never do that again, but Parks And Rec is not one of them.”
“We did do seven seasons, y’know somewhere along the lines of 150 episodes. So eventually you start running out of stories to tell. But because of the nature of that show kinda mimicking time, I definitely wouldn’t rule out seeing it again; seeing us get back together for something, for a movie, or for another season down the line. Possible spin-offs or whatever.”
“I love the character of Andy Dwyer so much. I put so much of my heart and my soul into that character. My comedic clown, my comedic schtick that I’ve been working on since I could walk is that character. He’s the personification of everything about me that is comedic. And getting an opportunity to work on that show for 150 episodes was just a dream come true. So I would definitely bring it back.”
Earlier this year, the cast of Parks And Recreation reunited for Aubrey Plaza’s birthday.
