A year ago, Amy said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that she was prepared to put on her Leslie Knope suit at any moment. She explained that "if there was an actual thing happening, you'd probably be able to pry it out of me pretty fast."

Amy and Nick also told Ellen DeGeneres last year that they would jump at the opportunity for a reboot, but only if Beyoncé joined the cast, according to PEOPLE.

"Parks and Recreation" ran for seven seasons. The series followed the regular lives of government laborers in the small American town of Pawnee, Indiana, as reported by Metro.
