Michelle Obama is heading to Pawnee.

The FLOTUS will appear in the Parks and Recreation season six finale as herself. The special one-hour episode titled "Moving Up" is slated to air on Thursday, April 24 at 8 p.m. on NBC.

Obama filmed her cameo appearance with series star Amy Poehler in late February when the two appeared together as part of Mrs. Obama's "Let's Move" initiative dedicated to ending childhood obesity. Might the first lady help Pawnee with it's ever-growing obesity problem?

This isn't the first time politics and Parks and Rec have collided. Vice President Joe Biden appeared as himself in season five of the NBC comedy. Senators John McCain and Barbara Boxer and former Senator Olympia Snowe have all appeared as themselves.

After the FLOTUS's appearance, that means Leslie Knope just needs to meet the president and Hillary Clinton. Good thing we have at least one more season to make that happen!

Parks and Recreation will return for a seventh season on NBC. While the network hasn't put out the official announcement, NBC's Robert Greenblatt told reporters at the 2014 TCA that the comedy will return. But could it be for its last season? Executive producer Mike Schur told EW, "No decision has been made on that, but it wouldn't surprise me if next year were the final season."

Parks and Recreation airs Thursdays, 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
