The Cast of Parks and Recreation Get Together to Discuss the Series Finale
After seven hilarious and heartwarming seasons, the beloved comedy Parks and Recreation ended its run on Tuesday night. Luckily for fans who weren't quite ready to say goodbye to their favorite people of Pawnee, the cast was back together again during their visit to Late Night with Seth Meyers. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Aziz Ansari, Retta, Nick Offerman, and Jim O'Heir, along with the show's creator Michael Schur, all gathered to discuss the series finale with host Seth Meyers.
The talented ensemble kicked things off by discussing what went into the emotional series finale and who had the hardest time saying goodbye. Hint: it was none other than Jerry/Terry/Garry/Gerry/Larry himself, Jim O'Heir. (Plus, in a perfectly fitting full-circle moment, Seth Meyers celebrated his 100th episode with his friend Amy Poehler, who was his first Late Night guest, who lead a congratulatory song for him.) Watch:
Of course, this is the Parks and Rec cast, so there were many laughs in addition to the tears. Case in point: Retta talked about her rejected pitch to have her character Donna get it on with Joe Manganiello, while Chris Pratt shared his hilariously warped idea for how the show—and his character Andy—could meet their end. Check it out:
Just in case that wasn't enough to put a smile on the face of any Parks and Rec fan, the group also did one last rendition of their delightful ode to Li'l Sebastian, "5,000 Candles in the Wind," complete with a Jim O'Heir and Aubrey Plaza make-out session. (No joke.) We sure are going to miss this show and this cast!
