Adam Scott and Amy Poehler
Parks and Recreation is getting back into the business of, well, parks and recreation.
On Thursday's episode, the infamous Lot 48, which was once the pit that Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) had been so desperate to turn into a park, will return. But it's not Leslie leading the charge this time: April (Aubrey Plaza) wants to turn it into a dog park!

It's all thanks, in part, to Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe), who has introduced a new initiative called 311, where concerned citizens of Pawnee can call the government to get their questions answered and complaints heard. "While Ron is on the phone shift, this lady keeps calling about this pothole in front of her house," Nick Offerman explains of Ron and Diane's initial interaction.

Parks and Recreation Scoop: Leslie's about to get a rude awakening
In these exclusive never-before-seen videos shot while the NBC comedy was on location in the nation's capital for the season premiere, Andy (Chris Pratt) acts as tour guide around Washington, D.C. to present the facts — which are often really wrong. Still, he goes on the hunt for an underground city, picking up clues (aka money) out of fountains. And since he's in D.C., Bert Macklin makes a surprising return!

Knope we can, and yes, Parks and Recreation's Leslie did!
After spending the majority of Season 4 fighting her way through a lopsided election against the biggest imbecile in Pawnee, Ind. — you're so pretty, Bobby Newport (Paul Rudd) — Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) is finally a City Councilor. But just as her dreams finally came true, Leslie's boyfriend Ben (Adam Scott) nabbed a job in Washington, D.C., which is where Ben will be stationed when the comedy returns this fall.

Welcome to May sweeps (albeit still in April) and, more important, the countdown to the end of the official broadcast season on May 23. Meaning an end, for now, to those pesky repeats and the start-and-stop scheduling of favorite shows. Reason enough to celebrate? Wait until you see what NBC has in store for you tonight (or at least for those choosy few who gravitate toward the network's better Thursday night comedies).
As Super Tuesday drew to a close, the candidate on everyone's mind at Parks and Recreation's PaleyFest event was Pawnee City Council hopeful Leslie Knope.
There are only a few weeks left in the NBC comedy's fictional campaign, but the race could go either way. Two endings were shot for the season finale — one in which Mouse Rat performs "Catch Your Dream" and the other in which they sing "Screw Your Dream" (you get the idea). "For a long time, we didn't know what it was going to be," star and producer Amy Poehler told TVGuide.com at Tuesday's event, which featured a panel moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Michael Schneider.
