But! No need to fret. Not all of your favorite small-screen friends have run off until fall. In fact, many of them will be in movie theaters. Herewith, eight of your favorite TV actresses on the big screen this summer.
Parks & Recreation’s eye-roll specialist April Ludgate gets her first lead in Safety Not Guaranteed, a time-travel comedy with Mark Duplass out now.

Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf in Adam Sandler’s That’s My Boy (June 15). Synopsis: Every Adam Sandler movie, ever.
Community’s Britta goes apocalyptic in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (June 22). Also featuring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley as lovers. (Our keyboard almost broke typing that.)
Boardwalk Empire’s morally strident Margaret Schroeder voices the lead of Pixar’s latest, Brave (June 22).
Downton Abbey’s Lady Mary gets Shakespearean in the BBC film version of Henry IV (end of June). Technically, it’s still television. But it’s also, technically, more Mary Crawley in period dress.
