Se possibile, “The Office” potrebbe essere diventato popolare da quando è stato trasmesso originariamente. Grazie alla sua precedente sede su Netflix (ora disponibile su Peacock), la sitcom mockumentary ha guadagnato un pubblico completamente nuovo di streamer della Gen Z che erano troppo giovani per guardare durante la corsa iniziale dello show, incluso il cantante Billie Eilish, che ha campionato l’audio da un ” Office” per una canzone e una volta disse a Elle che guardarlo in modo abbuffato era “come una terapia”. Anche le star dello spettacolo ne hanno sentito gli effetti, pubblicando libri e podcast di successo sfruttando la rinascita di “Office” degli ultimi anni. Nel 2021, Brian Baumgartner, che interpreta Kevin Malone, è diventato il più redditizio su Cameo, una piattaforma di celebrità. Dato il roster costellato di stelle del sito, non è un’impresa da poco.
Of course, all of this renewed interest in "The Office" has begged one major question: will there be a reunion? Or better yet, a revival? Cast reunions are all the rage lately, from "Friends" to "Harry Potter," and it would be great timing. Seeing the Dunder-Mifflin staff working together once again as their characters or even themselves would be a dream come true for fans. While many have kept in touch, such as Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey, who host the "Office Ladies" podcast together, they haven't all been in one place in quite some time. On June 15, "Office" star Ed Helms finally opened up about a potential reunion.
Ed Helms may break Office fans' hearts
Unfortunately for fans of "The Office," Ed Helms has confirmed there's no planned reunion in sight. During a June 15 appearance on "The View," the panel asked him about the possibility to much disappointment.
Getting fans' hopes up for a few seconds with his phrasing, Helms ultimately shot down the proposal, saying "Ladies and gentlemen, breaking news: there is no 'Office' reunion. At least not that I know of." Given the importance of his character, Andy Bernard, it's highly likely he would know about such a reunion if it were happening. However, Helms didn't say he was against participating in one, just that there were no current plans for it. When asked if he's heard of any reunion rumblings from his co-stars, Helms said, "We're all in a text chain, a lot of us actually from the show, and it doesn't come up very often. It was a thing, it had its life, and maybe somebody's working on it behind the scenes, but I haven't heard it." That isn't great news, but it's good to know that most of the cast is still in contact.
Nevertheless, an eventual full cast reunion of "The Office" seems inevitable, someday in the future. Maybe they'll wait for an anniversary year, as reunions often do. The recent "Harry Potter" cast reunion commemorated the franchise's 20th anniversary, and the "Friends" cast sat down together. Given "The Office" cast's friendly terms, maybe it's just a matter of time.
