Rashida Jones And Rob Lowe Leaving “Parks & Rec”

Sad news for the dedicated fans of NBC’s Parks and Recreation.

Actors Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe will depart the show midseason, according to reports. Jones has been a regular on the show since season one, while Lowe turned a season two guest shot into a main role.

That’s tough news for the show’s ensemble, but may hint at a resolution for Jones and Lowe’s characters. Ann Perkins and Chris Traeger ended last season in the midst of trying to have a baby, and a departure might indicate that they succeed.

The two will reportedly exit the show on episode 13, scheduled for February 2014.
