When we last connected with the people who make up the fictional government of Pawnee, they were saying goodbye to two of their own. Ann and Chris may now be gone, but the show's showing no sign of stopping, so it all begs the question: What next? One of Parks and Rec 's benevolent gods, Michael Schur, talked about that very question in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.
