John Krasinski Wants an ‘Office’ Reboot as Much as We Do
We’re basically in a constant state of bingeing all nine seasons of The Office, so when news of a potential reboot dropped, getting excited wasn’t too hard (that’s what she said). Well, it turns out we’re not the only ones begging for more Dunder Mifflin.
John Krasinski, who starred as the affable paper pusher Jim Halpert on the show, revealed that he would love to get back to his old nine-to-five.
The IRL Jim continued to reminisce, saying, “Right until the end, we were a family, we were emotionally connected, we all cried our eyes out on the last day. Yeah, we were all moving on to other things, but not because we wanted to get off the show. It was sort of a magical existence.”
Although the director of A Quiet Place is eager to reunite with his former coworkers, he understands that many of their schedules might not be able to handle a full-fledged series. So listen up, NBC, because Krasinski is a man with a plan.
Instead of rebooting the show for a full series, Krasinski thinks one-episode specials are the way to go: “I think the U.K. thing that I always have 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, coming back, finding out where everybody is. I would totally be down for that.”
The Office powers that be have stayed mum about the potential reboot, so there’s no telling if it’s all an elaborate Dwight Schrute hoax. Either way, we’re still holding out hope.
