Daniels himself was asked about a revival of “The Office” last October, and while he told Collider that rumors about the show’s return were “very speculative,” he also seemed to hint that not all hope is lost. “When there’s something to announce, I will definitely announce it,” he told the outlet. Fischer told Cranston she’d appear in a follow-up project for a new generation of “The Office” watchers: her children. “I would do it,” she said on the most recent episode of “Office Ladies.” “I would do it for my kids because I think they would think that’s fun.”
While at least half of the TV reboots out there haven’t justified their own existence, “The Office” would return with something to prove: its simultaneously meta, reflective, and aimless final season didn’t exactly nail the landing (though the actual series finale remains beloved), so any attempt to revisit the world of the show could only serve to improve upon some of the bumpier bits of season 9. Personally, I could see “The Office” continuing in the vein of Michael Apted’s “Up” series, a long-running documentary saga that chronicles the lives of its subjects every 7 years. The series ended in 2013, so the finale’s 10th anniversary has already passed, but there are plenty of other dates to choose from.
As for Cranston, he says he’d be happy with a tiny cameo if a project ever comes to fruition. “I just want to be an extra in it,” he says. “I would be some guy.” While he pitched himself appearing as a crossing guard, Kinsey had an even better idea: “Maybe you’re like one of Dwight’s hired hands on Schrute Farms.”
