New year, new lockdown - but luckily for us, we've got some new shows to help pass the next few weeks stuck inside.
Netflix has announced that beloved American sitcom, Parks and Recreation, will be coming onto the UK platform from 1st February.
For the uninitiated among us (where have you been?!), Parks and Recreation follows the perky, if a little ditzy, Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks Department of Pawnee, a fictional town in Indiana.
The mockumentary-style sitcom, from the makers of The Office US, also features Leslie's hapless advisors that help her instigate new policies, including Rashida Jones as Ann Perkins, Paul Schneider as Mark Brendanawicz, Aziz Ansari as Tom Haverford, Nick Offerman as Ron Swanson, Aubrey Plaza as April Ludgate, Chris Pratt as Andy Dwyer.
Parks and Recreation has won awards for its cringe-worthy comedy, with Amy Poehler winning her first Golden Globe awards for her portrayal of Leslie Knope in the series, as well as receiving a number of Emmy nods.
Netflix posted the good news on Twitter, writing: "Every day is treat yo' self day in 2021. Parks and Recreation comes to Netflix UK/IE on 1 Feb," and posting a picture of the eclectic cast.
They also confirmed in the comments that all seven seasons will be available on the streaming platform.
Fans were delighted with the good news, and immediately expressed their delights in the comments.
"As if I needed an excuse to rewatch this masterpiece of a show!" wrote one fan.
