'Parks and Recreation': The cast welcomes you to Season 3

parks-and-rec-s3-320.jpgWe're now just two weeks away from the return of "Parks and Recreation," which is A) excellent news, and B) still two weeks away.

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.
