Now, during a photoshoot with Variety, actor and director John Krasinski has said he would be keen for the show to return, as he wants to know what his character Jim Halpert is up to these days.

“He had a whole lot of hopes and dreams, he had a lot of zany ideas, and then he went to Austin to live his life and I feel like the dreams are still in his head so let’s see what he’s doing now.”
Earlier this year, Krasinski said that he wanted the show to return for a one-off Christmas special. Speaking to NME, he said of the possible revival: “I’m in, yeah. The truth is what they’re doing with Will & Grace, I don’t think we’d be able to get our [whole] cast together – it’s a big cast – to do another run of the show.”
He added: “But I will say that I’ve always been confused as to why the US shows don’t do the Christmas special. The UK versions of all these amazing shows do a great Christmas special that you can sort of pull out from the rest of the episodes. I think that would be really fun.”
