Rainn Wilson Says He Would 'Love To Revisit' The Office
The Office star Rainn Wilson has said that he's up for returning to the hit TV series.
Fans will be delighted to hear the news despite the rest of the cast being split on the idea of revisiting the show, which ended in 2013 after nine seasons.
Steve Carell, for example, has said he has no intention of returning to the character of Michael Scott but the likes of John Krasinski and Angela Kinsey have seemed keen.
Following on from them is 54-year-old Wilson, who told Collider: "I'd love to revisit The Office.
"I've told [producer] Greg Daniels that I would love to do something. They're gearing up for putting it on Peacock. Maybe someday we'll do something.
"It's funny, I hear things like, 'We can't do anything because we ended this show perfectly, and we don't wanna do anything else.'
"But then, someone will send some idea that's just preposterous and I don't know what to think. Hopefully, one day.
"The fans would really love it. That's the thing that counts the most. The fans would really love to see those characters again and have an experience with them."

The Office will be moving to US streaming service Peacock exclusively in January after it leaves Netflix later this year.
According to Collider, Peacock has already said they'll have extra 'bonus footage' available so perhaps a reunion could come off the back of that - depending on how successful it is. Just an idea...
Speaking about this 'bonus footage', Peacock chairman Matt Strauss told Bloomberg: "We will be reintroducing The Office in a more complete way, incorporating elements that were not part of the original broadcast."

Fans will be excited to know that Bob Greenblatt, former chairman of NBC Entertainment, revealed in December that the show's creator Greg Daniels has been considering a reboot of the hit show and even has an idea for how that could happen.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Greenblatt said: "But, look, I was talking to Greg Daniels four years ago about rebooting The Office, way before this.
"He wants to do it and actually has an idea for it."
Looks like we'll have to wait and see what that idea actually entails, but that certainly sounds good, doesn't it?
