• The Office reunion photo is…just a photo

    The cast of the Office has reunited! Again! Well, at least for a picture. Multiple members of the cast posed at a brunch at The Office creator Greg Daniels’ house. Jenna Fischer posted the photo to her Twitter causing the internet to speculate on whether a reunion is in the works.

    In the front row of the picture are, left to right, Rainn Wilson, Angela Kinsey, Fischer, Daniels, and Ed Helms. Appearing in the back are Creed Bratton, Paul Lieberstein, Brian Baumgartner, Leslie David Baker, Phyllis Smith, and Oscar Nunez.

    Fischer followed up the tweet with a reply that showed the iconic Office Christmas photo that they were trying to recreate. The cast all appears in their original positions, except Daniels, who is standing in Steve Carell’s spot. She included a caption in the follow up tweet saying they missed, “Steve, Ellie, John, BJ, Mindy, Craig, and Kate” in reference to Carell, Ellie Kemper, John Krasinski, B.J. Novak, Mindy Kaling, Craig Robinson, and Kate Flannery, all of whom were also a part of the principal cast of the iconic sitcom. She ended the tweet with “We will see you soon!”

    The inclusion of “see you soon” captured the minds of the internet as many speculated that they were teasing a reunion of the popular show. This was not the first time the former cast of the show has teased a reunion recently. Earlier this month, members of the cast joined Carell on stage when he hosted Saturday Night Live during his opening monologue.

    One Twitter user replied to Fischer’s tweet saying, “this proves the SNL opening a few weeks back – you do meet but don’t invite Steve!” referring to a joke that Carell made during his monologue. Fischer was quick to respond “HAHA! He was invited but he’s in London.”

    Carell also piped up from London, tweeting that he missed the cast.

    While no news of a reunion is on the horizon, it is nice to think that the ensemble is still friends.
