Chris Pratt Says He Would Love to Do a ‘Parks and Recreation’ Reboot
NBC’s Parks and Recreation has only been off the air for three years, but some fans are already thinking about a reboot — and cast member Chris Pratt, for one, is totally (hypothetically) on board.
“As long as I’m in town, yeah, I’ll do it,” Pratt recently told E! News when asked about a possible revival. “It films like 10 minutes from my house, so that would be dope.”
Pratt played Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation from 2009 to 2015. His fan-favorite character was charmingly simple and sweet, and Pratt said that, not unlike all of us, he has fond memories of his goofy alter ego. “I miss Andy too,” he told E! News. “I would love it. I know I would do it.”
TV and film reboots are the norm now, and while NBC’s Bob Greenblatt has admitted that he would be open to bringing back some of its programs, including The Office and 30 Rock, no rumors or official talks of a Parks and Rec revival have circulated.
Two of Pratt’s former costars are set to rejoin forces on the small screen in another way, though: Amy Poehler, who played Leslie Knope, and Nick Offerman, who played Ron Swanson, are teaming up for NBC’s new crafting competition show Making It. The pair recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote the series, and Poehler seemed definitive in her desire to go back to Pawnee. “I’ll speak for everybody and say we would all do it,” she said of a reboot. “I think we’d all do it someday, it’d be amazing.”
