The first preview for Parks and Recreation‘s final season has arrived, straight from the future of 2017.
The clip only features around 30 seconds of actual show footage, so there’s not a lot to see besides jokes about future technology (remember when Amazon had that ‘Prime Air‘ idea? Well here it is, scaring Ben and Leslie at their home), but we do get a glimpse of what some of our favorite characters are up to now.
In a 2017 Pawnee, Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari) is a ‘mogul’, Andy (Chris Pratt) has his own Johnny Karate TV show, and Jerry (Jim O’Heir) has changed his name. Again. Ron’s (Nick Offerman) still there, looking grumpy as ever, while April (Aubrey Plaza) is shown using her futuristic tablet to look at dogs, still busy with her Animal Control Department job.
Mike Schur told Entertainment Weekly back in April that the majority of the farewell season will take place in 2017, but that there might still be room for certain episodes to jump back and fill in that three-year time gap that the show jumped. But this promo doesn’t really give anything away, besides the fact that Leslie doesn’t have that fringe that debuted in the flash-forward anymore.
Parks and Recreation‘s final season begins on January 13, 2015 with back-to-back episodes.
