Parks and Rec: John McCain and 9 other cameos to expect its last season


The end of Parks and Rec is near, but that doesn’t mean the show is skimping on the fun or the laughs, especially consider all these final season appearances are lined up.

When the show returns, Leslie (Amy Poehler) will work to build a new national park, but technology company, Gryzzl, tries to get in her way with some stiff competition. We can’t wait to see how all these cameos factor in.

1. John McCain

E! News has confirmed that McCain will be making another Parks and Rec appearance for the final season.

3. Megan Mullally

Tammy 2 is making her annual trip, likely to make one last attempt to gain Ron Swanson’s affections even though he’s now a happily married dad. She will appear in the second episode of the season, according to E! News.

4. Natalie Morales

Word is Morales is set to appear in multiple episodes, which has us thinking sparks will fly between her character, Lucy, and Tom Haverford once again.

5. Rashida Jones, and 6. Rob Lowe

It made sense to include these two together since their characters, Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins, both left together in the middle of Season 6. If you’ll remember, the two moved to Michigan to be closer to family in preparation for the birth of their son, Oliver.

7. Jon Hamm
