Parks and Recreation fans most likely had their minds blown on Wednesday night, when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years -- just as the beloved NBC show incredibly predicted in its 2015 season finale.
The show's final season is set in the future -- 2017 -- and Lucy (Natalie Morales), who lives in Chicago, tells Tom (Aziz Ansari) and Andy (Chris Pratt) that "everyone's in a really great mood now because of the Cubs winning the Series."
Parks and Recreation co-creator Michael Schur recently explained to The Washington Post that the prediction was actually no joke as fans originally might have thought. Schur, a lifelong baseball fan, personally wrote the line that predicts the historic win.
"As soon as we decided to throw the last season of Parks and Rec into the future, into 2017, we sort of started calculating what the world might be like," Schur explained to The Post last week, before the Cubs officially clinched the win. "We talked about...aspects of America that we could sort of casually mention that we thought would be funny."
"I was the only person on the staff who cared about baseball enough to track the Cubs' minor league system," he added.
Still, he remained humble about the prediction.
"It's not like I was only person who thought the Cubs were going to be good," he noted. "Every baseball writer in America knew the Cubs were going to be good. I can't emphasize enough how little credit I feel like I should take for that prediction...We're not, like, wizards."
