The two, who play Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins on the NBC’s Parks and Recreation, will be leaving after the 13th episode of the sixth season, likely to take place during February sweeps, according to Buzzfeed.
No reason has been given, but I’m guessing it’s a combination of other commitments for both actors, and the fact that their characters’ usefulness has essentially been exhausted. The series has long had difficulties fitting Ann into the storylines, and with Ann and Chris having a baby together and rekindling their romance, hopefully their departure will be a sweet one.
The series returns at the end of September.
Also, ANN PERKINS.
