It's time to "Treat Yo Self!" because NBC has renewed Parks and Recreation for a sixth season, TVGuide.com has learned.
The NBC comedy, which stars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, saw...
Parks and Recreation's season finale will feature a mystery so large only one man can take on the case: Special Agent Burt Macklin!
Andy's (Chris Pratt) alter ego will return during Thursday's Season 5 finale (airing 9:30/8:30c on NBC) after evidence is uncovered that someone in the Parks Department may be... pregnant! Before you assume it's Ann (Rashida Jones) and Chris (Rob Lowe), who have been trying to have a baby, don't forget that there are several other female candidates that could come in as wild cards.

Elsewhere in Pawnee, (a possibly pregnant) Leslie (Amy Poehler) will reflect on her first year in city council as the town celebrates Founders Week, (a possibly pregnant) April (Aubrey Plaza) will get some life-changing news and (a definitely not pregnant) Tom (Aziz Ansari) may get the long-awaited recognition he's always hoped for. To get more scoop on the finale, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Mike Schur:
Jimmy Fallon Late Night
On Thursday night, Jimmy Fallon, Blake Shelton and Nick Offerman dressed as chickens and performed "Ho Hey" as The Lumineers (most likely) never intended — entirely in the language of the friendly fowl.
Following in the footsteps of Camilla and the Chickens, The Chickeneers had everyone shaking their tail feathers with the all-clucking rendition.
Check out their cluckin' awesome performance on Late Night below.
Adam Scott and Amy Poehler
It's the moment five seasons in the making (and also one Pawnee year of planning and two hours of prep): Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) is getting married to Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott)!
And although we're as excited as when The Office's Jim and Pam said "I do" — twice — we're a little worried about how the Parks and Recreation power couple will get their wedding together in a mere two hours after deciding to get hitched at the black tie gala to raise money for their park project. Will everything come together in time? TVGuide.com caught up with executive producer Mike Schur to find out about Thursday's eventful back-to-back episodes (airing 8:30/7:30c and 9/8c on NBC). Plus: Will Leslie finally get to build her park?

Parks and Recreation Scoop: Bert Macklin returns — sort of!
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. "I think he shares her frustration with the government that nobody at public works is picking up the phone, so he...
