Parks and Recreation leaving Netflix in October 2020

Parks and Recreation has long been a favorite among Netflix subscribers. However, Parks and Rec will soon be the latest beloved sitcom to depart Netflix as it joins a growing list of fan-favorites to be removed from Netflix’s list of offerings.

For years, Netflix has been the home to all seven seasons of NBC’s quirky workplace comedy starring Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Retta, Adam Scott,  Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari and Chris Pratt but, like all good things, the series’ time on Netflix is about to come to an end.  As reported by What’s On NetflixParks and Rec will be leaving Netflix effective Oct. 1, 2020 meaning fans have less than one month to enjoy the series before it leaves Netflix for good.

Parks and Recreation is the latest in what has been a growing list of beloved series to leave the service joining fellow NBC comedies Friends and The Office, the latter of which will leave the service in January 2021.

Where can you stream all seven seasons of Parks and Recreation?

As Parks and Recreation‘s time on Netflix comes to an end, the pressing question on the minds of fans is where we’ll be able to stream all seven seasons of the series once it departs Netflix on Oct. 1. So just where will the series be moving now that its time on Netflix is up?

Like with The OfficeParks and Recreation will be moving over to NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock where it will stream alongside other NBCUniversal classics including 30 Rock, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Saved by the Bell and Will and Grace — to name a few.

Will Parks and Recreation ever come back to Netflix?

While you can never say never, it’s highly unlikely Parks and Recreation will return to Netflix in the future. Understandably, as NBCUniversal looks to build up its Peacock service having exclusive streaming rights to series such as Parks and Rec only helps to make the service more alluring to fans.

Although there is a chance Netflix could somehow swing the rights to the series for its international users, even that seems unlikely at this time.
