Parks and Recreation is soon to end and the cast share some fun tidbits during the 2015 Winter TCA Press Tour panel in Pasadena, California on Friday, January 16.

Parks and Recreation just kicked off its final season this week and will end in February. Here are some of the tidbits that the cast and crew shared.

1.       Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) for Mayor

Executive producer Mike Schur revealed that Pratt's goofy, lovable character was originally going to end the show as mayor. "That's what we thought. He was going to shine everyone's shoes and everyone who meets him loves him, and that's why we kept him doing that for a while," he said. "And one point in season two or season three, we were like, 'Andy's going to be the mayor someday!" according to US weekly.

2.       Poehler isn't a fan of Cones of Dunshire.

Cones of Dunshire is the fictional Dungeons and Dragons-like board game Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) created. Poehlr said she hated the game as it is confusing and it gives her headache.

3.       Dwyer's First Home

Pratt's favorite "Andy era" is when he lived in the dirt pit in the first season. "I love living in the pit," he said. "That was awesome. Living in the pit was amazing and having dirt fights and rock fights with bums." At one point, Andy would talk to gophers (or his "associates"), but the writers ended up cutting the scenes.

4.       Small Town Character Love.

Poehlr said one of the show's highlights was how the show has reached to younger fans. She said that the characters are characters that the viewers have really grown to love and care about.

5.       Pratt Packing Up?

Despite landing huge film roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and the upcoming Jurassic World, Pratt never thought of leaving the show. "It never once occurred to me," Anna Faris' husband said. "I would never f--king ever leave this show."
