'Parks and Recreation': The cast welcomes you to Season 3
To help fill that time, though, we present to you a long-ish preview of the coming season. The nearly four-minute preview includes a number of clips from the first couple episodes of Season 3, a re-introduction of Adam Scott's and Rob Lowe's characters and some talking-head moments from Amy Poehler and the rest of the cast.
You'll also see a few clips of guest stars Will Forte (as a "Twilight"-obsessed Pawnee resident), Megan Mullally ( Nick Offerman's real-life wife, playing Ron's ex Tammy) and Parker Posey (a frenemy of Poehler's Leslie).
The preview is below: "Parks and Recreation" premieres at 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday, Jan. 20.
