John Krasinski Says He’s Keen On A Christmas Special Reunion For ‘The Office’

It can be almost guaranteed that before anyone's even read this story, people will either be commenting or thinking to themselves: "Who cares, the UK version was better."

While that may or may not be true, the US version of The Office, starring Steve Carrell, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski, also has legions of fans who would love to see the gang back on their TV screens.

Alas, after nine seasons and 201 episodes, we had to say goodbye to the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in the Scranton, Pennsylvania. The actors involved in the show have gone on to do bigger and better things, but one star reckons that a reunion would be pretty awesome.

John Krasinski, who played salesman Jim Halpert, has told IndieWire: "It's one of those things where I'm sure people don't believe me when I say I would totally do it, because the truth is I would totally do it."

But before you get too excited, the 38-year-old doesn't want the show to come back for a full season.

"I think the UK thing that I always have pitched and wanted to do is that Christmas special thing, where we do a Christmas special this year and then two years from now, or three years from now, we do another one," he said.

"I love that idea coming back finding out where everybody is. I would totally be down for that."

John is the first to admit that that would be the best way to approach a reunion because, and most viewers would agree with this, the show was wrapped up pretty nicely.

The final episode was so good that it was nominated for three awards at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. Dwight got married to Angela, Michael ended up being best man and all the main cast members had their final interviews for the fake documentary.

Despite this nicely packaged finale, that hasn't stopped speculation that the show could return in its full format. TVLine reported in December last year that NBC was eyeing the 2018/19 season to reboot the series.

It would reportedly still be set at the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company but Steve Carrell wouldn't be a part of the new-look show.

Network president Bob Greenblatt told the site: "We often talk about The Office. I've talked to [show developer] Greg [Daniels] four times over the past few years. It's always, 'Maybe someday, but not now'."
