Parks and Recreation is coming to an end, and the finale episode will air tonight, Tuesday, 24 February on NBC network.
The season 7 finale episode is titled, One Last Ride, Parts 1 & 2, and the official synopsis reads as follows:
The Parks gang completes one last task together, before saying goodbye to Pawnee. Starring Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Retta, and Jim O'Heir.
Showrunner Mike Schur previewed what viewers can expect in the finale episode.
Schur told Tvline: "There are some real nostalgic story lines where, for various reasons, a lot of people in the town of Pawnee will come back at once. But the goal is to always have the story stand on its own. We want to do a half-hour of comedy that's relatable."
Schur also noted that while some of the show's secondary characters will bid Pawnee adieu before the series finale, "the last moments of the show are everybody in the same place at the same time."
The showrunner also revealed that he began to feel in the middle of season 6 like "there's one more year, and I feel like it's a short year. That's what we felt in our guts was the right move, creatively."
The cast and crew will work together to pay tribute to Parks and Recreation's producer and writer Harris Wittels who died on February 19 at the age of 30.
The show is planning a special tribute to Wittels at the end of its series finale. Described by Deadline as "a We Love You, Harris message" from the cast and crew, the tribute should bring the finale to unimaginable levels of emotion.
Amy Poehler mourned the death of Harris Wittels, who was reportedly struggling with addiction.
"Today, I lost a friend," Poehler told the crowd at a Hollywood Oscar nominee event in Beverly Hills, the New York Daily News reported.
"I lost a dear, young friend in my life who was struggling with addiction. I'm sharing it with you because life and death live so close together, and we walk that fine line everyday. So, I don't really feel like telling any jokes."
