Might there be a reboot of The Office in the future?
Ellie Kemper, who co-starred on the NBC comedy series from 2009 to 2013, posed that question to her former co-stars, Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey, while guest-hosting an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Said Fischer, who played Pam Beesly on the series for all nine seasons (2005-13): “I would not do an Office reboot, but I would love to do a reunion special episode. I’d like to get us all together again.”?
Kinsey was a little more committed to reprising her role as Angela Martin, whom she portrayed for the run of the series: “I would do anything they called me to do. So if you want to call me, I’m around.”
Kemper, who played Erin Hannon, agreed: “I will be there. Angela and I are rebooting The Office.”
Kinsey and Fischer also talked about their real-life friendship and podcast, Office Ladies, in which they break down an episode of the show and share behind-the-scenes stories.

NBCUniversal said earlier this year that it is pulling The Office reruns from Netflix when that deal ends at the start of 2021. NBCUniversal’s forthcoming direct-to-consumer platform will then be the exclusive streaming home for all nine seasons of the comedy starting in 2021.
