It’s been half a decade since NBC’s The Office premiered its series finale, and a cast reunion photo has Twitter wondering whether a reboot is on the way.

On Sunday morning, The Office creator Greg Daniels hosted 10 cast members at his house, pulling together Ed Helms, Jenna Fischer, Angela Kinsey, Rainn Wilson, Creed Bratton, Brian Baumgartner, Phyllis Smith, Leslie David Baker, Paul Lieberstein, and Oscar Nunez.

The reunion quickly went viral after both Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer posted photos on Twitter, including an attempt to recreate a Christmas photo featuring the entire cast.

“Some of the old gang got together today… it was so great to see everyone!” Kinsey tweeted. “I turned to Ed and said, ‘I feel like we are at a family reunion.’ He smiled and said, ‘We are.'”

But Fischer’s tweet in particular raised eyebrows. After posting the original Office Christmas photo, Fischer gave a shout out to the cast members missing from the reunion—including Steve Carell—and said “We will see you soon!”

Fans began speculating what Fischer meant by the phrase, mostly by posting Office GIFs.

Others were just happy to see a huge portion of the cast back together, even if Steve Carell, Craig Robinson, John Krasinski were missing.

No matter what’s going on with The Office, everyone can agree on one thing: Toby shouldn’t be there. He’s not part of the Office family.


As for whether a reboot for The Office is on the way, NBC was reportedly “in talks” last year to bring back the series, according to Entertainment Weekly. If so, the revival would star some original cast members as well as newcomers to the series, although Carell would reportedly be missing.

That said, Helms, Fischer, and Ellie Kemper joined Carell for his recent Saturday Night Live monologue, begging him to join an Office reboot for “that money.” While fans continue to wonder what’s in store next, the show’s cast isn’t afraid to come together again informally—even if it isn’t for a remake.
