There Are Three Parks & Rec Season Finale Endings On Tape


Not even the writing staff of Parks & Recreation know if Leslie will win her campaign for Pawnee City Council. At the show’s Paley Center panel, Michael Schur said that they’ve actually shot three different endings for the season 4 finale. “We wrote it in such a way that everything up until the moment we played that scene, it could go either way,” he says. We have the ability to choose Path A, Path B or Path C. We’ll wait to edit it, see how it plays, see how we all feel about it and then we’ll make our choice.” It’s like they’re waiting to see what really happens, just like real voters! I guess this means we can stop playing the episodes backwards listening for a secret backmasked hint about the election’s outcome.
