Fans of The Office might begin crying into their paper clips.

John Krasinski, who starred as Jim on the NBC series throughout its 9 seasons, has often said that he would be keen for a revival of the show which was adapted from the UK series created by and starring Ricky Gervais.

But could we imagine a reunion of The Office without Michael Scott?

We might just have to if we really want one because Steve Carell has said he won’t be returning to Dunder Mifflin (despite some of his co-stars recently encouraging him to when he recently hosted Saturday Night Live…)

“I feel like I’m a broken record, talking about this because I get asked about it. The show is way more popular now than when it was on the air. I just can’t see it being the same thing, and I think most folks would want it to be the same thing, but it wouldn’t be. Ultimately, I think it’s maybe best to leave well enough alone and just let it exist as what it was. You’d literally have to have all of the same writers, the same producers, the same directors, and the same actors, and even with all of those components, it just wouldn’t be the same. So, no. But, I love the show. It was the most exciting time, and all of those people are my friends. We all love it. It was a special thing. It was a special thing before people thought it was a special thing. It was special to us, before other people started feeling that way. But, no,” Steve said during an interview with Collider.

Well, we’ll always have the minutes…
