The season ended with Leslie Knope (Poehler) facing her biggest political battle to date as residents of Pawnee banded together to see her thrown off the city council. The infallible Ron Swanson (Offerman) will also have an interesting battle next season as it was revealed that his girlfriend Diane (Lucy Lawless) is pregnant.
Parks and Recreation joins the previously renewed Parenthood, Grimm, Law & Order: SVU and freshmen series Chicago Fire and Revolution. Earlier Thursday, the network gave series orders to Jason Katims' About a Boy, J.J. Abrams' Believe, Crisis, The Family Guide starring Parker Posey, and Sean Hayes' Sean Saves the World. On Wednesday, NBC also canceled the low-rated Deception.
