Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the shifter will not move from reverse it could be an issue in the shifter itself, the cable, an internal issue in the transmission, or there may be something foreign physically blocking movement at either en.

Are you able to remove the shift cable at the transmission and see if you're able to shift it into park by hand?
