Sad news for fans of Parks and Recreation this week. As many of you know, there’s a been a huge shift happening on streaming services, with new competitors entering the market. Because of this, many films and series are now being dropped. And there’s some devastating news this week as Parks and Rec is the latest victim to be shunned by a number of platforms!
The comedy, created by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur (also known for The Office and Brooklyn Nine-Nine), will be leaving streaming giants Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video in October. Parks and Rec still to this day has a cult following, even after it ended over 5 years ago. Pawnee will be moving on to other ventures. So you better get your last binge in before it leaves on October 1st!
The sitcom has been adored for quite some years now. The silly comedy follows Leslie Knope and the gang, as they work on projects in the Indiana town. Starring Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman and Chris Pratt, the love for Parks and Rec was recently revitalised as the cast rejoined for a one-off charity special. The coronavirus episode highlighted the cast at home on a video call, with fans pushing for the show to be brought back. And while there has been suggestions that an eighth season could be on its way, fans will have to watch the show on a brand new service…
Yes that’s right. We are sad that Parks and Recreation is leaving Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. But the series is moving on to another exciting platform. Peacock will now host the comedy, and the service even offers a free subscription. Users will be able to watch Parks and Rec, along with other popular shows for free. But there is one catch – users must sit through a number of free ads in order to do so.
So be quick if Parks & Rec heading to Peacock doesn’t sound like your cup of tea. There’s only a few weeks before Parks and Rec leaves. It would take around 63 hours to watch every single episode, so get cracking!
