Tv Season Info

The seventh and final season is set three years into the future. Leslie is now the Midwest Regional Parks Director, with April and Andy---who has his own TV show---reporting to her. Garry also reports to Leslie, but is known as Terry. Ben remains City Manager; Ron has left the Parks Department to start a construction company called Very Good; Tom is a highly successful business owner; and Donna runs her Regal Meagle real-estate firm. As the season begins, an intense rivalry is ignited when Leslie takes interest in purchasing land for a national park, but it just so happens Ron is pursuing the same land for his construction company. Eventually, Ben, April, Andy, Donna, Tom and Terry are forced to intervene as tensions reach a boiling point. Before the curtain closes, the gang tackle one last project together.

Here at the end, I stand by most of my criticisms that this season, as a whole, was good, not great.

Parks and Recreation, a show that miraculously held on at NBC for seven seasons under the near-constant threat of cancellation, has always striven to please its fans.
