Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe will soon take their leave of Parks and Recreation, but thankfully, promises Amy Poehler, no one is ever really gone when it comes to Pawnee.

“It’s really sad… to lose them and to send them off to the great big beyond,” the funnylady mused Monday at a press screening. “But we’re a really tight family here, so you never really feel like you’re saying goodbye to family; you just know won’t see them as much as you have.

“Knowing our show, no one ever really leaves Pawnee — we still call people back that did stuff in the first and second season,” she added with a laugh. “So, I’m certain that Rob and Rashida will make their way back to Pawnee as many times are we can drag them.”

As for what to expect from Ann and Chris’ swan song in Episode 13, Parks creator Mike Schur shared, “It’s very sad in places,” to which Poehler interrupted, “It’s so good. It is so good. Is that lame to say it’s so good? It was so good.” And if that’s not enough, piggybacked Adam Scott, “It’s really, really funny, too!”

Schur went on to assure viewers that with these departures, out of sight is most definitely not out of mind. “It’s not like [Ann] leaves and Leslie will never mention her name again,” he explained. “There will be some episodes where she deals with the ripple of Ann leaving — we’re writing that episode now.”

All in all, joked Poehler & Co., these impending exits will really only alter the show aesthetically.

Nick [Offerman] had the best quote,” she laughed, paraphrasing: “‘I think our show just got about 85 percent less attractive.’”
