Angela Kinsey Hints That US Version Of 'The Office' Could Return

Angela Schrute/Martin, from the US edition of The Office, is best known for getting to the point with no niceties at all.

After running for nine seasons, the show came to an end in 2013, but if rumours (and the words of Martin actor Angela Kinsey) are to be believed, it may be set for a return.

As fans of the show will remember, Angela married her co-worker and confidante Dwight Schrute in the Season 9 finale, matching two incredibly awkward and at times dislikable (but hilariously so) people.

But talking to Celeb Buzz recently, Kinsey said she'd be up for a reunion if Greg Daniels (one of the main writers) could 'bring the group back together'.

She also predicted that the married Dwight and Angela might be 'running a really defunct bed and breakfast' together, which in itself could be a sitcom we imagine.

Debate has raged for years now as to which was the better version of The Office, the original, or the US revamp. Obviously, you could argue (as I would) that the original is the best because it's the original and not back that up with anything, as I just have.

You could also say that the US version took the original concept and more or less adapted it verbatim for a while before going rogue and produced seven more seasons of consistent, solid hilarity.

Either way, both shows were infinitely better than most comedies on television and the thought that either could be set for a return is a source of great delight at LADbible towers.

We're pretty excited about the idea of a revamp, even if the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Why are we so keen? Well, maybe a few of Angela's classic lines will help persuade you...

"I once reported Oscar to the INS. Turns out he's clean, but I'm glad I did it."

"I find the mystery genre disgusting. I hate being titillated."

"You may ask me out to dinner. Nothing fancy or foreign, no bars, no patios, no vegetables, and no seafood."

"There's too many people on this earth. We need a new plague."

"Sometimes I'll start a sentence and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way."

"How the turntables."
