The cast of Parks and Recreation is coming back together—this time, to help Wisconsin Democrats in their efforts to ensure Joe Biden wins their state come November. Cast members from the beloved NBC sitcom, which went off the air in 2015, will participate in a livestream "town hall" followed by a Q&A session Thursday that will be open to anyone who donates at least $1 to the organization, Fox News reports. Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Aubrey Plaza, Retta, Nick Offerman, Jim O’Heir, and series co-creator Michael Schur will participate, and the event page also promises special guests. The Wisconsin Democrats on Sunday night hosted a similar event featuring the cast of The Princess Bride; star Cary Elwes had a bit of fun with one of his mask lines from the film. (Parks and Recreation has already hosted one reunion during the pandemic.)
