9 seasons and 201 episodes is how long ‘The Office’ ran, an American television sitcom that was a mockumentary on a group of your typical office workers in USA. The show aired on NBC between 2004 and 2013 and won over a lot of hearts over the years, with a star cast including Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer and many more.
Lead actor for seven of these seasons was Steve Carell, who is one of the main reasons for making the show what is was. Today, even 5 years after the last episode of the show aired, people still call for a reboot of The Office, but these talks are always brushed away. Very recently, Carell appeared on Saturday Night Live (SNL) once again, and addressed talks about this reboot.
This was the third time the actor was called upon to host SNL and here, he took to opportunity to completely shut down all rumours or chances of a reboot of the show that everyone loved so much for years. He was joined by other members of the cast including Ed Helms (Andy Bernard), Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly) and Ellie Kemper (Erin Hannon).
Carell started off by saying that he has been happy with his career doing movies and refused to sign on for a reboot, while his former office co-workers Helms, Fischer and Kemper were all for the idea. “I don’t think it’s the best idea. Maybe we should just leave it alone,” he replied to one of the questions from the audience. Turns out it was a fake audience who all believed he should reboot The Office.
Ed Helms from the audience also told him it’s a lot of money involved and, “You won’t have to do all those sad movies anymore.” Carell’s wife Nancy and his two kids were also present in the audience and she asked him to do the show as well, to which Carell said he’d rather spend more time with his family. However, they didn’t seem to think that was required. They left the SNL show midway.
