The Office has been sorely missed on television since its final episode in 2013, leaving many fans of the show desperately wanting a reunion episode or reboot. While a few members of the cast have said they’d like that to happen, we now have confirmation of a reunion, even if it’s non-televised.
ReedPOP, the company behind New York Comic Con and the upcoming inaugural Keystone Comic Con in Philadelphia, announced today that an Office reunion will take place at the latter event in September. The reunion will fittingly take place in Pennsylvania, the home state of Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch. “The Office, with its Scranton roots, has become ingrained with the state of Pennsylvania and we know that fans of the show are in for a very special experience this year,” said Lance Fensterman, Global Head of ReedPOP.
The reunion panel will include Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin), Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone), Oscar Nuñez (Oscar Martinez), Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton), Leslie David Baker (Stanley Hudson), and Catherine Tate (Nellie Bertram). Sadly, Steve Carrell (Michael Scott) has not made the commitment.
