Parks and Recreation fans are returning to Pawnee, Indiana for a great cause.

Five years after a bittersweet farewell, the hit NBC show is reuniting the original Parks and Rec cast for a special episode called A Parks and Recreation Special. Throughout its seven seasons, the political satire sitcom drew inspiration from current events, and this time, it’s tackling the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Featuring Amy Poehler (Leslie Knope), Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins), Aubrey Plaza (April Ludgate), and Chris Pratt (Andy Dwyer) among many others, the half-hour scripted episode will center around Leslie trying to stay connected to her friends during a time of social distancing.

Creator Michael Schur hopes longtime viewers will enjoy a “slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life” and donate to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.
