Someone alert the residents of Pawnee because the Parks and Recreation department were spotted at a glitzy reunion event in Hollywood last night (March 21).

Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Rashida Jones, Retta, Adam Scott, Jim O'Heir and Rob Lowe reunited to mark 10 years since the mockumentary debuted and viewers met the likes of Leslie Knope, Ron Stallworth, Burt Macklin and Lil Sebastian for the first time.

The reunion took place at Paleyfest, a TV media event in Los Angeles. The event marked one of the few public reunions since the show ended in 2015 and its cast went on to do huge things (hello, Chris Pratt).

The cast were clearly just as excited to be there as the fans, with several of them sharing snaps on social media.

Naturally, for such a beloved television show, whispers of a revival happened as soon as the cast were pictured together.

The show's creators Mike Schur (who also created The Good Place and Brooklyn 99) and Greg Daniels were also on the panel and addressed the question.

Schur clarified a reunion was only possible if "everyone on this stage – and like six other people – feel like there was a story that needed to be told", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ahead of the event, Poehler also told the publication that she would be "ready" and has been down "from minute one" for a reunion provided Schur was available and willing.

Offerman also said that he would "do anything Parks and Rec as long as the brass is behind it". Plaza echoed those sentiments, saying she'd never had "more fun in [her] life" than working with the cast, who she regards as family.

OK, give us a revival, already!
