Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe Are Leaving ‘Parks and Recreation’

Get ready for a Parks and Rec shocker: Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe are planning to leave the comedy in the middle of its sixth season, Buzzfeed reports. Their characters Ann Perkins and Chris Traeger, who were trying to have a baby together at the end of last season, are set to depart after the thirteenth episode. Hopefully this means the two will have a happy ending after their on-again, off-again relationship over the past few seasons.

While Ann and Chris aren’t the most interesting characters in Pawnee and their storylines have been a bit lackluster, they will still be missed. What’s Leslie going to do without her beautiful tropical fish, Ann? And who is going to overuse the word “literally” if Chris isn’t around? I bet even April is a little bummed about this news.
