Jenna Fischer Is Down to Return as Pam in Potential 'The Office' Revival, But There's a Catch

It turns out the actress had no idea about the show's possible reboot.

The Office fans have been freaking out about the potential revival ever since the speculative announcement last month, but there's a fairly significant actress who had no idea this was even happening. That would be Jenna Fischer, a.k.a Pam.

"I think that’s for networks to figure out if I were to be asked," Fischer told reporters at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour on Monday. "I haven't been approached about it and don't know anything about it. ...But I love Pam!" The actress explained that she'd be happy to reprise her role as long as Greg Daniels (the show's developer) is backing the project. Fischer later told The Hollywood Reporter:

"I think the idea of an Office revival is a great idea. I would be honored to come back in any way that I am able to. I loved playing that character and as long as Greg Daniels is the person in charge and the visionary behind it, then I would absolutely be up for it. We just have to get Mindy [Kaling], B.J. Novak, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, Mike Schur to write some episodes. That show was so great because of the talent involved behind the scenes, not just on the screen."

Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin) and Creed Bratton (himself) have already said they will return if the revival happens, but Steve Carell—who played the famously absurd Michael Scott before leaving in season 7—will not be involved. But the reboot will reportedly include returning cast members from the original series as well as new additions.

If this thing does happen, it will be great to see Jim and Pam reunite, even though John Krasinski already broke all of our hearts by saying they weren't actually in love offscreen.
