The cast of The Office (US) had a reunion over the weekend. This is making us even more excited as there has been lots of rumours regarding a reboot.
Kinsey posted a photo from the get-together on Twitter, which was hosted by The Office creator Greg Daniels.
Some of the old gang got together today… it was so great to see everyone! I turned to Ed and said, “I feel like we are at a family reunion.” He smiled and said, “We are.” ❤️ Thanks Greg for hosting! For those who couldn’t make it… you were missed! pic.twitter.com/DwF42lNGHk

As well as Kinsey and Daniels, they were also joined by Rainn Wilson (Dwight), Jenna Fischer (Pam), Ed Helms (Andy), Creed Bratton (Creed), Leslie David Baker (Stanley), Paul Lieberstein (Toby), Leslie David Baker (Stanley), Oscar Nunez (Oscar) and Phyllis Smith (Phyllis).
We were all heart-broken when it was revealed that a new version of The Office is potentially due to air during the 2018-2019 TV season, and Steve Carell would be missing.
However it does look like some members of the original cast will be returning, joined by a number of new faces.
The show will apparently be based in Dunder Mifflin’s office in Scranton, PA.
According to the report, someone else will take over the role as ‘the boss’ with a search for the actor to play the part reportedly now underway.
In an interview with TIME, Carell said he has no plans of reviving his character Michael Scott because he loves the role ‘too much’ to go back to it. He said: “I remember it was the first week we were shooting the pilot, and Jenna [Fischer] and John [Krasinski] and Rainn [Wilson] and I went out to lunch… just the four of us,
“We were sitting in this little diner in Culver City, and I remember saying, ‘Guys, if this works, this could be the most special thing that any of us are ever involved with.'”
Gamespot reports that in August this year, NBC boss Bob Greenblatt said he would like to see The Office return someday.
NBC has refused to comment on the rumours but it’s no secret that the demand for a comeback is definitely there.
It also remains unclear just which original cast members would be making a return for the potential new series.
It’s been five years since The Office was last on our screens, and yet even all this time later we’re still finding things out about the show that make us love it even more.
The latest Easter Egg will only make sense to you if you watched Episode 13 of Season 4 of the series – ‘Dinner Party’.
In that episode, Michael shows off his plasma TV. Here’s a reminder…
However in season 7, episode 19, look what shows up in the garage sale…
