NBC Renews Parks and Recreation, Up All Night, Whitney
Breaking news, Parks and Recreation fans: we'll get to see what Leslie Knope will be like in office.
NBC just announced a 22-episode fifth season renewal for what many consider to be the funniest show on television. It joins fellow Thursday comedies 30 Rock and Community in receiving a pick-up, while the same news is all but guaranteed for The Office, considering recent new deals signed by Ed Helms, John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer.
NBC will present its official, full 2012-2013 schedule to press members and advertisers on Monday. It's already placed orders for a number of new programs, however, and you can get your first look at them in our new show gallery.
UPDATE: Add Up All Night and Whitney (no, really, Whitney) to the list of renewals. Each is expected to air 13 episodes.
