Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe will appear in one episode of the final season of Parks and Recreation, TVLine reports. Their characters Ann and Chris moved away from Pawnee in episode 13 of last season, and Ann made a brief reappearance in episode 17, so really, Ann and Chris have barely been gone at all. The much more glaring absence is Parks itself not currently airing. Give the people a premiere date, NBC! When will we be back among the calzone-scented Hoosiers we so love?
