Who Could Replace Ann as Leslie’s BFF on Parks and Rec?
When news broke that Rashida Jones was leaving Parks and Recreation, we had a lot of feelings. Though Ann's departure is thankfully midway through the upcoming Season 6, which will give us some time to cope, we’re worried about Leslie Knope.
Throughout Parks and Rec’s five seasons, Leslie and Ann’s friendship — the good times and the bad — has been the core of the show, so Ann is leaving some big shoes to fill. Executive producer Mike Schur told TVLine that it “won’t be just one person” who “replaces” Ann in the remainder of Season 6, but just in case he changes his mind, we have some gals who could fit the bill as Leslie's best gal pal.
Click through the gallery to see our picks for Leslie’s dream BFF, all of whom happen to be queens of comedy. Notably, Aubrey Plaza was not included since Leslie and April’s relationship does not include making out for the paparazzi.
