The thirst for a Parks and Recreation reunion can finally be quenched, as the cast will celebrate the show's 10th anniversary together next year.

Mike Schur's sitcom made huge stars of Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Adam Scott and Nick Offerman (to name a few), and now according to The Hollywood Reporter, a number of them will be getting together for a special panel at PaleyFest Los Angeles.

Poehler and Schur have shared a short statement to mark the panel's announcement, which reads: "We're thrilled to be reuniting at PaleyFest. And truth be told, we were all hanging out already anyway, so carpooling will be easy."

Although this is no doubt sweet music to the ears of many, a reunion in this format probably isn't what fans will have hoped for deep down.

An on-screen revival has been on the collective Christmas wishlist ever since the show ended in 2015, so while the panel will no doubt offer nostalgia, any new material is still a distant dream.

Poehler recently raised fans' hopes after admitting she's "available" for more Parks and Recreation.

"I am technically available," she revealed. "I have like six of Leslie's blazers in my closet, so any time."

But it looks like it's Schur's availability that is getting in the way of it all, as she elaborated: "Our king is busy doing his highly successful show The Good Place. We really can't jump without Mike. So when Mike is good and ready, I'm sure we'll show up like good soldiers."
