Fact creator Michael Schur needed to research where the characters of the event left before writing a special reunion Thursday night, which unites Parks and Recreation thrown in for a one-night event. “It was really complicated, because the last season of the show aired in 2014 [and 2015] happened in 2017. And then the end of the event … jumped [from] 2017 along the way, I think 2065 in various moments, “Schur be told reporters at this week’s conference call. “So the first thing we have to do is say, where is everyone?”
