There must be some very unhappy Parks & Recreations right now with the news that has just been released.
Buzzfeed is reporting that both Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones will be leaving the series in Season 6. The pair will exit the show for good around the 13th episode. At this moment, no one is 100 percent sure what the reason is for their exit, but some sources are saying it is a budgetary issue.
Michael Schur released a statement:
“The news about Rob and Rashida is true — they will be leaving the show after the 13th episode of the upcoming season six. We’ve been working on their storyline (on and off) for four seasons now, and heading into this year, with the two of them contemplating parenthood, it felt like a natural time to move them into the next phase.”
Stay tuned as more details become available.

Rejoice Hannibal fans! NBC announced today that it has renewed its freshman series for a 13 episode second season. The series was created by Bryan Fuller and based on the characters from the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris got off to a great start but over the weeks the numbers began to dwindle. To date, the show is averaging a 2.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.7 million total viewers.
“We’re so proud of Bryan’s vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke stated. “There are many great stories still to be told.”
Hannibal stars Hugh Dancy as expert criminal profiler Will Graham, who has a unique ability to peer into the mind of serial killers. Mads Mikkelsen stars as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist who is helping with the cases and, unbeknownst to Will, is a serial killer himself. Laurence Fishburne stars as Jack Crawford, the head of the FBI’s Behavorial Science Unit.
Despite constant reporting that Steve Carrrell was not going to be in The Office finale, word has come down that he will actually make a cameo appearance in the finale.
According to TVFanatic, as early as last week series creator Greg Daniels shot down rumors of Steve appearing in the finale. They both agreed. Steve was concerned that his coming back would overshadow the finale episode and the ending the characters deserved so his part again will only be a cameo.
There are some very happy cast and crew members from several popular NBC shows today! Why are they happy ask? The network just announced that they are renewing Grimm, Chicago Fire, Revolution, Parenthood and Law & Order: SVU.
