‘Parks and Recreation’ to go on 3-week break, says NBC

Fans of Leslie Knope and company will be saddened to hear that Parks and Recreation will not be appearing during its regular Thursday night timeslot for a few weeks. The station has just announced that they are making a huge scheduling shift beginning this Thursday, Oct. 24.

In place of Parks, NBC will be airing an episode of The Voice, the following week will be occupied with a Saturday Night Live Halloween special, and lastly a live episode of The Voice on Nov. 7.

According to TV Line, this major shift will help fill the void of recently cancelled Welcome to the Family. The site also reports that NBC will be airing back-to-back episodes of Parks and Rec when it returns on Nov. 12 and 21 so fans can catch up with their favorite folks in Pawnee.
