9 Shows Like ‘Parks & Rec’ You Can Watch Right Now

Have you already watched all seven seasons of Parks and Recreation (multiple times)? It’s probably time to switch up your streaming queue.

We rounded up a list of nine TV shows like Parks and Rec—not only are they equally as binge-worthy, but they also give Leslie Knope’s comedic skills a run for their money. Keep reading for the complete list.

1. The Good Place

When Eleanor (Kristen Bell) passes away, she ends up in a seemingly perfect afterworld (AKA “the Good Place”). Of course, things aren’t quite as idyllic as they seem.

2. Chewing Gum

Tracey (Michaela Coel) is a 24-year-old shop assistant, who puts aside her religious background to learn more about the world. The first step? Losing her virginity.

3. The Mindy Project

Looking for a sitcom with a strong (and quirky) female lead? Meet Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling), a successful doctor who’s struggling to maintain her non-existent social life. In an attempt to become a better version of herself, she teams up with her best friend from college.

4. New Girl

Jess (Zooey Deschanel) moves into a loft with a group of boys after getting dumped by her boyfriend. Although she has nothing in common with her new roommates, she soon learns it’s not so bad.

5. Schitt's Creek

The Roses are forced to give up their lavish lifestyle when they realize they’re broke. To adapt to their new way of living, the family must maintain their one remaining asset: a small town called Schitt’s Creek.

6. Black-ish

Dre (Anthony Anderson) fears that he’s introduced his family to too much cultural assimilation. The show documents his attempt to create a sense of ethnic identity.

7. 30 Rock

It tells the story of Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), the head writer of a live sketch-comedy show in New York. The series is loosely based on Saturday Night Live—need we say more?

8. The Office

The documentary-style series follows the employees of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company as they try (and fail) to cope with the childish antics of the Scranton branch’s Regional Manager, Michael Scott (Steve Carell).

9. 2 Broke Girls

A witty hustler meets a billionaire’s daughter while waitressing. Together, they start a cupcake business only to realize they have no money. Chaos (and hilarity) ensues.
