NBC's "Will and Grace," said goodbye in a final episode last night. But another popular sitcom has announced a comeback!

"Parks and Recreation" will return for a half-hour special on April 30th, with the full original cast!

The show was a fan favorite on NBC before leaving the airwaves in 2015.

The plot of this new special has super-optimist Leslie Knope trying to stay connected to her friends despite social distancing.

The network says this is the first scripted show aired in primetime that deals with the coronavirus pandemic.

The telecast will raise funds for "Feeding America's COVID-19 response fund."
