We’re Extremely Overexcited About The Office Revival Rumours
There’s been a hole in our lives ever since the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin closed it’s doors back in 2013. (Yes, we think the American version’s better than the UK original. No, we’re not interested in arguing with you about it.)
But now, we finally have a reason to smile again. The Office is set to return next year. Maybe.
According to TV Line, NBC are considering bringing the show back after boss of bosses Bob Greenblatt said there was “an open invitation” for a revival.
Rumour has it the cast will be a mix of old and new, though a couple of stars have already ruled themselves out of a reunion.
Steve Carell has previously said he’s not interested in reprising the role of hapless manager Michael Scott, explaining: “I don’t think it’s a good idea. Fans of any show think that they want to see more of that show but I don’t really (believe) that’s the case, because they want it to be exactly what it was, and there’s no way it can be exactly what it was.
“Even in the best possible scenario, it’s always a slight disappointment. I don’t see any reason to slightly disappoint people who might have loved your show to begin with.”
Jenna Fischer agreed, telling Variety back in November: “I don’t think it’ll ever happen. I would do it if there was some circumstance where everybody got back together, and could be brought back together in some amazing way, I would say yes. But I’m not sure it’s realistic.
“The characters, they had arcs. They had growth. Jim and Pam left Dunder-Mifflin. Michael left Dunder-Mifflin. And it would be hard to manufacture why all the people were back working together. And I’m not sure the show works if we’re all in different locations.”
With John Krasinski currently filming Amazon’s new Jack Ryan series, that just leaves Rain Wilson’s Dwight Schrute to take the reins… geddit?
