The downright hilarious cast of Parks and Recreation love a reunion and so it was only a matter of time before they got back together to bring some laughs to their fans during lockdown.

Lesley Knope (Amy Poehler) and the gang got back together for Galentine’s Day and to mark the show’s 10th anniversary last year.

Now, everyone’s favourite fictional government workers have reunited once more, five years after the series finale aired, for a coronavirus special that sees the characters dealing with social distancing rules in their own, unique way.

Paul Rudd (Bobby Newport), Chris Pratt (Andy Dwyer), Rob Lowe (Chris), Adam Scott (Ben Wyatt), Aubrey Plaza (April Ludgate), Aziz Ansari (Tom Haverford), Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson), Rashida Jones (Anne Perkins), Retta (Donna Meagle) and Jim O’Heir (Jerry/Garry/Larry/Terry/Barry Gergich) all star in the one-off special that aired in the UK on Thursday.

But how can Parks and Rec fans in the UK watch the reunion of Pawnee residents on this side of the pond?

Can you watch the Parks and Recreation special in the UK?

The Parks and Rec reunion special originally aired on Thursday, April 29 at 8.30pm ET/PT on NBC in the US.

Those with Hulu were able to stream the show online, but this only extended to American customers.

Sadly for British fans of the hit US comedy, a UK airdate has yet to be announced, but we are still holding out hope that Knope and the gang will find their way over to our screens soon.

For those who want a taster of the Parks and Recreation special, NBC have uploaded clips from the one-off show to their official YouTube account and these are available to watch online in the UK.

Executive producer and creator Mike Schur said of the reunion: ‘Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money.

‘I sent a hopeful email to the cast and they all got back to me within 45 minutes.’

‘Our old Parks and Rec team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life and we hope everyone enjoys it.’

Parks and Recreation seasons 1-7 are available to stream now on Amazon Prime in the UK.
