Pawnee fans can rest tight. According to NBC president Robert Greenblatt, it looks like 'Parks and Recreation' will be back for a seventh season, after all.
It was just yesterday when we reported on the new overall deal between NBC and 'Parks and Recreation' star Amy Poehler. The deal is similar to the one Poehler's BFF, Tina Fey, struck with the network when her NBC sitcom, '30 Rock,' was ending its run, leading some to question whether the same fate was in sight for Poehler and her fellow Pawnee residents.
Greenblatt put those fears to rest on Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour by "going out on a limb" and saying that 'Parks and Rec' is "going to have a seventh season." Technically, it's not a formal announcement, but we'll take it.
As for the network's other acclaimed comedy, 'Community,' Greenblatt was less forthcoming, but he did say that a sixth season for the fan favorite show is a "strong possibility." Fingers crossed!
As for the network's other Thursday night comedies, 'Sean Saves the World,' and 'The Michael J. Fox Show,' Greenblatt expressed his disappointment at their low numbers, but did give some love to his Thursday drama, 'Parenthood,' which has been performing solidly.
