Parks and Recreation has found its new streaming home. On Tuesday, NBCUniversal announced that its upcoming streaming service, Peacock, will become the exclusive home for the beloved comedy, per The Hollywood Reporter. Parks and Recreation was previously available to stream on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.
Earlier this year, it was announced that The Office, one of the most popular shows on Netflix, would be moving to Peacock for $500-plus million. While NBCUniversal chairman of direct-to-consumer and digital enterprises Bonnie Hammer wouldn't say how much it took to negotiate the rights to Parks back, she did tell THR that they "were competitive and very fair."
The Office is set to leave Netflix for Peacock in January 2021, while Parks will depart Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime in October 2020. When Peacock launches in April 2020, its library will be home to several notable series that will eventually become exclusive to the service, including: 30 Rock, Bates Motel, Battlestar Galactica, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Cheers, Chrisley Knows Best, Covert Affairs, Downton Abbey, Everybody Loves Raymond, Frasier, Friday Night Lights, House, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, King of Queens, Married ... With Children, Monk, Parenthood, Psych, Royal Pains, Saturday Night Live, Superstore, The Real Housewives, Top Chef and Will & Grace.
