Since The Office concluded in 2013, fans have had their fingers crossed for a revival or at the very least a reunion of sorts for the show. However, it doesn't seem the cast and crew can all get on the same page about it, and creator Greg Daniels is sure of this.
According to Daniels, a full-cast reunion is unlikely. "I loved doing The Office more than anything. And if we were going to revisit it, I would want to do it," Daniels said on The Hollywood Reporter's podcast, TV's Top 5. However, he admits the cast's wildly successful careers make for a tough break when it comes to scheduling, or even the desire to revisit the show.
"I think people were assuming that an Office reboot would [involve] ... getting the entire cast back together and just continuing where we left off," Daniels said. "We're probably not going to get every single character back, they're all doing all this cool things." Fans of the sitcom should apparently keep their wishes in check, as he added, "I don't think people's expectations of getting back in the saddle and doing more episodes of the same show was going to be realistic."

Of course, a reunion would be nothing without key cast members such as Steve Carell (Michael Scott) and John Krasinski (Jim Halpert), so ultimately, a lot of the power is in their hands. But when it comes to Daniels' opinion on the matter, he's pretty much in. "At some point, maybe, it's unfair to be a priss and not give them what they want," he said. Looks like revisiting Dunder Mifflin is inevitable, but might not happen anytime soon.
