Retta: It's Time to 'Hook a Sister Up' on Parks and Rec

Parks and Recreation's Retta Wants More Love for Her Character

Originally posted 02/27/2014 07:15PM

After bidding a bittersweet goodbye to Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, Parks and Recreation returns Thursday with plenty of Pawnee action. Though Ann and Chris are gone, there's now room for other characters to take the spotlight – and we're hoping Retta's Donna Meagle gets more time to shine.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Retta revealed she's pushing for love. Donna has enjoyed a wild dating life, but Retta thinks it's time for a real relationship.

"I want there to be a romantic interest in her future, and I keep bringing it up to our executive producer," Retta says. "I've kind of put it in his brain, and I believe that he shall hook a sister up, as they say."

Just months before his 50th birthday, Killing Kennedy star Rob Lowe is experiencing a career renaissance – but he is most excited about his life as a family man.

"My work life is so chaotic and we live in Santa Barbara so it is a very long drive but I'm home every night and I wake up in a beautiful area with my family," Lowe tells PEOPLE. "Sometimes on days off I don't even leave the property."

And although the past few months has been a busy time for the Parks and Recreation star, he is taking extra care to savor his last few months with his youngest son, John Owen, 18, before he goes off to college, following in the footsteps of his brother Matthew, 20, who is in his second year at Duke University.

"They are both so academically advanced," says the proud papa. "They have also been a handful at times but I wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, if they had not been I would have worried where my DNA was!"

It's true – Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins are peacing out of Pawnee.

Mike Schur, Parks and Recreation's executive producer, confirms that Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones are set to exit the series.

"The news about Rob and Rashida is true – they will be leaving the show after the 13th episode of the upcoming season six. We've been working on their storyline (on and off) for four seasons now, and heading into this year, with the two of them contemplating parenthood, it felt like a natural time to move them into the next phase," Schur said in a statement.
