Okay, so we all know that’s it’s been far too long since “The Office” parted ways with NBC. Yes, we can rewatch the show on Netflix about 100 times (just ask me, I have), but we still wish we could get some fresh Michael Scott jokes, new Dwight and Jim beef, and some more Stanley eye rolls.
Since fans have become even more obsessed with “The Office” with streaming services than they were when the show aired in real time on NBC, the network has discussed a “reboot” with all new characters. But, fans haven’t really been in love with the idea of their favorite show without their favorite characters–and, can you blame them?
The Office is coming back without Steve Carell.

“The Office is planning a return”
“Steve Carell will not be a part of it”

Steve Carell has had quite the career since playing Michael Scott on the show. Since the news broke back in late 2017 that the show was getting a reboot, we haven’t heard much about how and when. We did hear the news that there would be an entirely new cast. But, then we didn’t hear much about that, either. So, we’re left saying–WTF.
Thanks to John Krasinski constantly talking about it in interviews, we have a bit of something (we can always count on Jim, right?). In an interview, Krasinski said he would totally be down to do a reboot of the show, if NBC wanted him. YES. PLEASE.
But, he went one step further and said the entire cast should get together for a one-off reunion–basically, one episode where they all have a reunion and a “what’s everyone up to now” kind of thing. He told IndieWire:
“The U.K. thing that I have always pitched and wanted to do is that Christmas special thing, where we do a Christmas special this year and then two years from now, or three years from now, we do another one. I love that idea (of) coming back (and) finding out where everybody is. I would totally be down for that.”
A Christmas special with all the original cast? We’re already marking our calendars.
