If you were looking forward to spending the rest of October with new episodes of the hit NBC comedy series Parks and Recreation, you might want to adjust your plans. The next three episodes of the show, including the October 31st Halloween-themed episode will all be preempted and pushed back by episodes of The Voice and a special Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live.
According to a report from TV Line, the next three episodes of Parks and Recreation are being bumped, and fans likely won’t be happy about the hiatus being forced on the show by NBC.
The Voice‘s Battle Rounds this week will spill over into Thursday’s 8 o’clock hour, bumping Tatiana Masalany’s second Parks appearance and filling the void left by the now-cancelled Welcome to the Family. Then on Halloween night, NBC will air a holiday-themed Saturday Night Live special.
Don’t get giddy thinking that November will bring new episodes of Parks and Recreation, because that’s not going to be the case. NBC has moved the playoff rounds of The Voice up to the 8pm ET time slot meaning rather than preempt Sean Saves the World and The Micheal J. Fox Show, the network is bumping the November 7th episode of Parks and Recreation back as well.
This means the next new episode of Parks and Recreation will not air until November 14th at the earliest.
