Virtual Cast Reunions featuring The Office, Parks & Recreation, Pretty Little Liars, and More

Given that the world is facing a global pandemic together, a lot of the celebrities that we know and love have also been spending most of their time at home as the production of shows and films have been halted for the time being. Despite this, stars of past television shows (that are no longer on TV) have been churning out new material for us, with their virtual reunions via Zoom for us to enjoy and reminisce in the comfort of our homes.

From table reads to Q&A sessions and a virtual dance-along, here are five virtual cast reunions that you can watch online.

⭐ Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley Bennett)
⭐ Gillian Jacobs (Britta Perry)
⭐ Alison Brie (Annie Edison)

Though it’s not quite #sixseasonsandamovie, we’ll take #sixseasonsandazoomcall as a win for us Community fans! The Greendale Community College study group recently reunited for a table read of an episode from Season 5 with most of the main cast except for Chevy Chase who played Pierce who was not a part of the reunion.

Aside from bringing us laughs, the reunion special was created as a way to fundraise for World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods — two charities that provide fresh meals to healthcare workers and first responders who are working on the frontlines during COVID-19.

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS

⭐ Ashley Benson (Hanna Marin)
⭐ Lucy Hale (Aria Montgomery)
⭐ Shay Mitchell (Emily Fields)
⭐ Troian Bellisario (Spencer Hastings)
⭐ Sasha Pieterse (Alison DiLaurentis)
⭐ Ian Harding (Ezra Fitz)
⭐ Tyler Blackburn (Caleb Rivers)
⭐ Janel Parrish (Mona Vanderwaal)

It’s been three years since Pretty Little Liars concluded but fans who have missed them will be happy to know that stars of the popular series have virtually reunited to answer fan questions and reveal all their secrets and stories from the PLL set. Unfortunately, due to technical limitations from his location in a mountainous region, Keegan Allen who played Toby Cavanaugh was sadly unable to join the livestream.  

The virtual reunion was a one-off session that live-streamed on 15 May, but due to popular demand, Cast4Good will be replaying the recorded livestream on 23 May at 11pm EST (11am SGT). If you’d like to watch the livestream, you’ll need to purchase a ticket here for USD$15 which will go into benefitting the charity Feeding America. You can click here for more information.

PARKS & RECREATION

Featuring:
⭐ Amy Poehler (Leslie Knope)
⭐ Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins)
⭐ Aziz Ansari (Tom Haverford)
⭐ Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson)
⭐ Aubrey Plaza (April Ludgate)
⭐ Chris Pratt (Andy Dwyer)
⭐ Adam Scott (Ben Wyatt)
⭐ Rob Lowe (Chris Traeger)
⭐ Jim O’Heir (Jerry Gergich)
⭐ Retta (Donna Meagle)

If you’re a huge fan of Parks & Recreation, you would love this reunion. To raise funds for COVID-19 relief efforts, NBC and the cast of Parks & Rec came together for a special standalone episode that lets us check in briefly with the key group of characters as well as cameos from special guest stars who’ve appeared in the series such as Paul Rudd and Ben Schwartz. 

Unfortunately, the reunion was a special that was televised on 30 April in the US and is currently only available for re-watch on Hulu. Though there is no official word on whether the episode would be made available on YouTube, we can only hope that they would consider letting us, their global audience, get an opportunity to relieve the Pawnee spirit too.

You can still watch a teaser of the episode that is available on YouTube here.

⭐ Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester)
⭐ Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel)
⭐ Darren Criss (Blaine Anderson)
⭐ Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina Cohen-Chang)
⭐ Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones)
⭐ Kevin McHale (Artie Abrams)

Even though it may not be the entire cast, part of the Glee alumni reunited to talk about the show and reveal behind the scenes secrets on an episode of Stars in the House, a daily live-streamed series that aims to raise spirits while fundraising for The Actors Fund. Having been off the air for a while now, it certainly is nice to see some of McKinley High’s graduates and teachers gathered together for our viewing pleasure.

You can watch the hour-long reunion here via the Stars In The House YouTube channel.

The cast of the hilarious sitcom The Office recently reunited on John Krasinski’s YouTube series Some Good News to surprise a couple who had recreated Jim and Pam’s gas station engagement with an impromptu wedding over Zoom. Not only did John lend a hand in officiating the ceremony, but he also got his whole Office cast to join in a virtual dance-along to Chris Brown’s ‘Forever’ — the song that saw the cast dance down the aisle during the wedding episode. Though the video may be less than 20 minutes, it is still a joy to watch especially when you’re taking a WFH break. 

You can watch The Office dance reunion here on John Krasinski’s YouTube channel.
