After five years away, a surprise and very relevant episode of "Parks And Recreation" is coming to NBC for a half-hour special Thursday night April 30th at 8:30PM.

The entire cast, including Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir will return for the special to benefit Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

The show will feature other Pawnee favorites as well.

The scripted episode, titled "A Parks and Recreation Special," will find Leslie Knope trying to stay connected with her castmates in this unusual time, Deadline reports.

"Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money," executive producer and co-creator Mike Schur said in a statement. "I sent a hopeful email to the cast and they all got back to me within 45 minutes. Our old 'Parks and Rec' team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life and we hope everyone enjoys it. And donates!"
