It has been five years since “The Office” completed its run on NBC, and questions about a reboot are never far from when the members of the cast are in the public eye. During Steve Carell’s November 17 host episode of Peacock’s late night series, “Saturday Night Live”, he utilized the opportunity to fake the audience with news about a reboot, but instead delivered a partial reunion.
Under Carell’s monologue, he took questions from the audience, including longtime player “SNL” Kenan Thompson and former “The Office” stars Jenna Fischer, Ellie Kemper and Ed Helms.
“It was a great experience, I love all these people, but I do not think it’s the best idea,” he said about a reboot. “I think we’ll just leave it alone.”
Carell tried to explain in different terms why it may not work, “said Thompson,” It would be as if they wanted you to restart “Kenan & Kel.”
“It should be honored, “replied Thompson.
Carell repeated that he did not think a reboot would be “as good” as the original and that he did not think it was a good idea ̵

“I do not think you realize how much money,” said Helms. “You would not have to make those sad movies anymore.”
Fischer asked Carell if he remembered the “last words that Pam witnessed whispered to Michael when she left Denver” at “The Office.” “She said,” Steve was not a cock, restarting, “she said.” Let’s just do the cursed thing! “
Carell’s wife Nancy Carell, who appeared at” The Office “and the kids were also in the audience , and they also said they wanted him to do the show. “We do not really need to hang you anymore. We’re fine, said Nancy Carell.
Carell asked the audience if a reboot was what they really wanted, and of course it was a loud applause, but he did not have a real announcement of one to do. Instead, they were treated to the reunion when his former castmates joined him on stage.
