June 24 (UPI) -- Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman are open to making more of their beloved show Parks and Recreation.

The 49-year-old actress and 50-year-old actor discussed the possibility during Thursday's episode of Today.


Poehler and Offerman played Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation, which had a seven-season run on NBC from 2009 to 2015. The series co-starred Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt and Adam Scott.

On Today, Poehler said she and Offerman would be excited for a reunion.

"I mean, I feel like Nick and I are probably the most eager and willing to do anything. We don't know how to play it cool, so yeah. We'll do it anytime. I mean, I can't speak for you," Poehler told Offerman.

"Anytime we can get back in that boat -- I love boats, fishing. Let's do it," Offerman said.


Poehler and Offerman now host the NBC crafting reality competition Making It, which will return for a third season Thursday. Offerman described the show as a "hug" on Today.

"I think the state of the world in recent years has made everybody want any kind of hug they can get their hands on. This is a hug in the form of a television show that is also inspiring and fun," the actor said.

Offerman said he was thrilled to reunite with Poehler on the series.

"It's like if a World Series-winning team had broken up and a few years later the ace pitcher called and said, 'Hey, I know we're not playing ball anymore. But do you want to get together?'" he said.

Making It Season 3 premieres Thursday at 8 p.m. EDT.
