Cast members of The Office recreated an image from the third season of the NBC sitcom this past weekend, and we are once again wishing for the show to return.
In what Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly/Halpert) called in her Instagram post the “best brunch ever,” the mini-reunion included the below photo that was staged to mirror one from the season three episode “A Benihana Christmas.”

Thanks to Greg Daniels, who adapted The Office from the BBC original and appears in the photo, Creed Bratton (Creed), Paul Lieberstein (Toby), Brian Baumgartner (Kevin), Leslie David Baker (Stanley), Phyllis Smith (Phyllis), Oscar Nuñez (Oscar), Rainn Wilson (Dwight), Angela Kinsey (Angela), Jenna Fischer (Pam), and Ed Helms (Andy) all helped give us a big dose of nostalgia.
Unfortunately, not everyone was in attendance. While Steve Carell (Michael), John Krasinski (Jim), Ellie Kemper (Erin), B.J. Novak (Ryan), Mindy Kaling (Kelly), Craig Robinson (Darryl), and Kate Flannery (Meredith) were all missing, Jenna did end her Instagram post by saying “see you soon,” which, for those wishing for an official The Office reunion show, may put even more fuel into the fire.
Angela Kinsey also posted the image on her Instagram account and said that she “turned to Ed and said, “I feel like we are at a family reunion.” He smiled and said, “We are.””
The Office has been in the spotlight a lot lately, especially after Steve Carell hosted Saturday Night Live and, during his opening monologue, had members of The Office cast ask him about the status of the show coming back for an encore run.
The Office aired on NBC from 2005-2013 and there were rumors of a revival at NBC and John Krasinski, Jim Halpert himself, has said that he’d “love to go back.”
While we wait to see if this was simply a reunion or something more, be sure to take a look at our list of the top 25 episodes of The Office and see how much money Jim spent in one of his favorite hobbies during the show, pranking Dwight K. Schrute.
Adam Bankhurst is a news writer who thinks The Office is one of his favorite shows of all time and needs this reunion to happen already! You can follow him @AdamBankhurst.
