How Amy Poehler Really Feels About A Parks And Recreation Reboot

Amy Poehler has certainly kept herself busy in recent years. She may be best associated with her work on "Saturday Night Live" and "Parks and Recreation," but she's taken on more behind-the-scenes roles for her latest projects. She's a co-creator for both "Russian Doll" and "Duncanville," the latter of which she also provides voiceover work for a couple of the main characters. She also serves as an executive producer on those two shows as well as "Three Busy Debras." On top of all that, she dipped her toes into directing feature-length films with the Netflix original "Moxie" and the documentary "Lucy and Desi," which chronicles the relationship between Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. 

Poehler absolutely has enough on her plate already. Still, it's only natural for fans to wonder if she'd ever return to a more prominent role in front of the camera, perhaps in a reboot of one of the most beloved sitcoms of the 21st century. While it may be premature for fans to start holding their breath, Poehler seems open to the idea.

Amy Poehler says she's 'always standing by' for a Parks and Rec reboot

Amy Poehler played one of the most lovable sitcom characters of all time as Leslie Knope on "Parks and Recreation." She was an overzealous worker within her city's Parks & Rec department who would often go to extreme lengths to help out the people of her town, whether they were appreciative of her efforts or not. Over the course of seven seasons, fans saw her ups and downs and the hilarious antics she got into along the way. 

While the series finale provided a glimpse into what Leslie got into years after leaving the Parks & Rec department, there are still plenty of adventures for fans to see. In fact, they got a glimpse at one such event during a special 2020 event when the "Parks and Recreation" cast reunited to shoot a special episode in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. But the question remains as to whether the gang would get back together for a proper reunion. 

While attending the premiere of "Russian Doll" Season 2, Poehler was asked precisely that, and as she told People, she's "always standing by." She went on to say, "Anytime anybody gives me the word, and I'm down." It's nice to see Poehler's enthusiasm for such an endeavor, but there's no word on whether a reboot will ever come to fruition. Fans will just have to be patient.
