AceShowbiz - NBC has announced the premiere date of final "Parks and Recreation" season. The 13-episode seventh season will go down on Tuesday, January 13 at 8 P.M., just two days after star Amy Poehler hosts the Golden Globes with Tina Fey.
The concluding season will air back to back each week, becoming the lead-in to 9 P.M. comedies "Marry Me" and "About a Boy". It takes over the timeslot of "The Voice" which will wrap up its current season this fall. The singing talent show will return in February and provide a good lead-in for "Parks and Recreation" series finale on February 24.
"[Exec producer] Mike Schur and Amy Poehler, along with their incredible producers, cast, and crew, have given us one of the great television comedies of all time, and we're inordinately proud of Parks and Recreation," said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt in a statement on Monday, December 1.
He continued, "In an effort to give it the send-off it deserves, we wanted to 'eventize' the final season to maximize the impact of these episodes, which really do take the show to a new level. The highly-anticipated one-hour finale will air behind The Voice in order to lead the largest audience possible into what promises to be a very special hour of television."
