Emily Blunt Reacts to John Krasinski Crying During ‘Mary Poppins Returns’
John Krasinski shared his idea for a reboot of The Office
We may see Jim and Pam again soon.
- John Krasinski is interested in doing a reboot of the long-running comedy 'The Office.'
- Despite persistent news reports and Twitter speculation, he has not yet been contacted about a potential reboot.
- Krasinski has an idea for a "where are they now" episode set in present day.
Rumors of a "The Office" reboot have been circulating ever since December, and it's safe to say that fans are ready to see the eclectic Dunder Mifflin gang back together again. Still, despite persistent reports and Twitter speculation, John Krasinski hasn't heard anything yet about the reboot - at least, not anything official.
"I would totally be interested," the on-screen prankster told The Wrap in an interview. "I still have yet to be called. I am surprised that after 'Ellen' and all that — I haven't gotten a call, so I haven't heard anything about it, other than on the internet. The internet is making the show, " he laughed. "Twitter is shooting this reboot. I don't know if any of us are going to be a part of it!"
Krasinski is referring to his appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last month, where he worried aloud that he wasn't invited to the reboot he had heard so much about.
"That show for me is obviously the greatest experience," he continued. "It's given me everything. It is the thing that has allowed me to do all of this other stuff."

But that wasn't all — John also came prepared with a pitch of his own to get momentum going behind the idea.
"I would love to play with those guys again and do something," he said. "It really comes down to the idea. The original British show, the best thing was they had a Christmas episode. It was a one-off. I would love to do that. I think it would be a sort of 'Where Are They Now' kind of thing. That would be really fun."
Needless to say, fans would very much like to be a part of this narrative.
While a stand-alone episode would definitely leave fans desperate for more of Jim's knowing glances at the camera, it would also provide some closure to fans craving an update on Dwight and Angela's marriage, Jim's sports marketing career, Stanley's retirement, and Kelly and Ryan's ill-fated relationship.
It's been a long five years without them.
