News of a potential reboot of The Office have been swirling around the internet for a while now, and we’re pretty excited about the thought of our favorite sitcom coming back to TV. Lucky for us, it doesn’t look like we’re alone in our excitement.
John Krasinski, who played Jim Halpert in the American version of The Office, appears to be down to do a revival as well. While he hasn’t gotten a phone call from NBC about doing a potential reboot, he does have an idea of what the show should entail.
Krasinski told The Wrap that he still hasn’t gotten a call, which has surprised us all: “I still have yet to get a call. 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.”
While he may not have heard about taking on the role of the mischievous Jim Halpert again, that hasn’t stopped him from putting in his two cents about what the reboot should look like.
“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.”
We’d be okay with a reboot in any capacity, but we definitely wouldn’t mind seeing Krasinski’s vision come to life.
In the meantime, we’re pretty excited about Krasinski’s newest project A Quiet Place, a thriller that looks like it’s going to be pretty terrifying. Hitting theaters April 6, we’re at least happy to see Krasinski on the big screen.
While the reboot of The Office hasn’t officially been announced, we’re still keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll get to see our favorite office employees on TV once again.
