But the thing is, a lot of people really do want it to happen — including former stars Ellie Kemper, Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey.
In the clip above from Ellen, Kemper — acting as guest host — chats to her former Dunder Mifflin colleagues about the possibility of the mockumentary making a comeback.
“I would not do an Office reboot but I would love to do a reunion special episode,” Fischer says. “I would like to get us all together again.” Kinsey and Kemper, meanwhile, both cheerily confirm that they would do “anything” Office-related they were asked.
Surely that’s enough to make this thing happen? Does Steve Carell really need even more convincing?
