Hooray! After being delayed (you know, because of Outsourced), NBC’s Parks and Recreation‘s season 3 is almost here!

We’re two weeks out from the Jan. 20 premiere, which will bring with it the addition of new regular characters Chris Trager, played by Rob Lowe, and Chris’ bad-news-delivering sidekick, Ben Wyatt, played by Adam Scott. We’re also super-stoked for guest appearances by Parker Posey and Will Forte and the return of Megan Mullalley as Tammy Swanson.

Can’t wait to see these guys work their comic magic with the rest of the Parks and Rec cast. And, luckily, thanks to this sneak peek of footage from season 3, as well as some inside scoop from the cast, we don’t have to!

Check it out:

What do you think? Are you as excited for the return of Parks and Recreation as we are?
