People continue to take inspiration from Jim and Pam in their Tinder bio. Long story short, we still miss The Office. Well then, Jenna Fisher and Angela Kinsey have hinted at the reboot of The Office since an unproduced episode of the series is still left to be telecasted.
What Makes The Office So Relevant 15 Years Later?
It’s been 15 years since the sitcom made its US debut. Listening to the Office Ladies podcast we know how uncertain The Office’s future was in the beginning. The series was based on the UK version and the British fans were convinced that the adaption couldn’t possibly live up to the original. Even the cast and crew felt a tint of job insecurity all the time.
What started on a doubtful note turned into a delightful series and went on to film 9 seasons in a go. Netflix has recently added a Top 10 feature that highlights the most popular movies and TV shows on site, and The Office consistently ranks on that viewership board.
One of the biggest heart-racing scenes of TV was set up in the most bizarre place- an Office building’s parking lot. Millions of fans were hooked to episode “Casino Night” of season 2. If you are someone who hasn’t watched the series, which is highly unlikely, I will not spoil the scene for you. Watch it and you will know. And most of you, who have watched The Office must have revisited the scene in their mind after reading the catchphrase “Casino Night”.
The episode “Stress Relief” of season 5 could stand against Super Bowl XLIII, confirming the shows’ pop culture phenomenon. The series aired its last episode on May 16 2013 but the hype around the show isn’t dying down. Scroll down to know how The Office crew continues to be living in our heart even after 7 years it last aired.
The Office And The Pop Culture References
You must have come across The Office inspired costumes in a Halloween party. You must have seen many around you making references of Jim and Pam in their tinder bios. The Office still rules the memes world. We still quote them here and there (“I’m not superstitious, I’m just a little stitious;” “Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica”).
15 years later, an off-Broadway musical inspired by The Office is touring all around North America. There is a children’s book to be published based on The Office. What more? The Office still rules the roost among the TV series till today. The Office hasn’t rebooted yet but is set up to give the fans the biggest surprise of 2020.
The Hysteria Around The Unproduced Episode Of The Office
In the age of reboots, reunions and revivals fans would kill to see Dunder Mifflin and crew back in The Office again. The Office left us with a few unanswered questions. We all want to know what Pam said to Michael in the end, how are Jim and Pamdoing, did Pam become a painter, and is Creed still alive? The reboot of The Office can only quench our thirst.
From Gilmore Girls to Queer Eye to Friends reunion, all famous series are brought back to screens. Fans of The Office are rooting for a reboot from years. And Fisher has hinted that there is a big reason why The Office must return. There is a mysterious lost unproduced episode that was never telecasted. The episode is titled “Pet Day”.
Though Fisher is against the idea of a filming and wants a staged reading of the unproduced episode but this revelation by her has given us hope that one day The Office will return for another season or a holiday series.
