Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope demands Nick Offerman’s Ron ‘practice social distancing’ in Parks and Recreation reunion – The Sun

AMY POEHLER's character, Leslie Knope, demanded Nick Offerman's Ron Swanson 'practice social distancing' in Parks and Rec reunion.

The two are back at it with their witty banter for a special benefiting Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund, which will air tonight.

Fans will be delighted to hear that Leslie and Ron are healthy amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In a preview for tonight's reunion, the Deputy Director of the Parks and Recreation Department checked in on her boss.

Leslie first asked Ron: "Are you in your cabin?"

To which Ron responded: "I am, I come up here to hunt meat so I don't have to go to the grocery store. I've built up about a 12-year supply of venison jerky. I can ship you some, you probably have to get your incisor teeth sharpened."

The mother of three then asked him what fans were wondering.

She asked her superior turned competitor: "When you travel, do you practicing social distancing?"

He sassily told her: "I've been practicing social distancing since I was four years old."

The cast of Parks and Recreation will come together in character for a 30-minute reunion to raise money for Feeding America’s coronavirus response fund.

The main cast is set to return, including: Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe and Jim O’Heir.

The half hour program will center on the tough challenges facing people all over the globe right now amid the global health crisis.

"Pawnee’s most dedicated civil servant, Leslie Knope, is determined to stay connected to her friends in a time of social distancing," a description for the episode read.

Executive producer and co-creator Mike Schur said in a statement: "Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money.

“I sent a hopeful email to the cast and they all got back to me within 45 minutes.

“Our old Parks and Rec team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life and we hope everyone enjoys it. And donates!” The TV mogul wrote.

Star and writer of the show Amy, 48, shared a message with fans about the newly-anticipated special.

"I'm inviting you to a very special Parks and Rec, all shot from our homes.

"We, along with our neighbors at State Farm are coming together to raise money for Feeding America and we hope you'll join us," the actress said.

Parent company NBCUniversal and the cast and crew of Parks and Recreation will raise a total of $500,000 in matching donations that will be made through May 21.

The comedic series aired from 2009 before airing its final episode – which was written by Amy – 2015.
