Parks and Recreation season 7 to be its last

Prepare to say goodbye to Pawnee, Indiana

Parks and Recreation is approaching its final season, with NBC revealing that things will be wrapped up in in season 7 with no prospect of a season 8.

The show has proven consistently popular, so this is not so much an axing as the show coming to its natural end, making way for the network's new shows like comedy A to Z with How I Met Your Mother's Cristin Milioti and drama State of Affairs with Kathertine Heigl.

Parks and Rec seemed to have reached a climax in its last season, which saw twists, cameos and time jumps in its finale episode, but was subsequently renewed for a seventh outing.

Creators have confirmed that the show will stay in its new time setting, which sees Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) pregnant with triplets.

While Parks and Rec make have reached its logical finish, the same can't be said for Community, which is currently the subject of a campaign to bring it back for a final series and a film.

The comedy was axed after five seasons last week, with fans hoping it will be saved by Netflix, which previously resurrected Arrested Development (albeit 7 years later).
