Calling all “Office” fans: Pam and Angela are coming back, says CNN.
No, it’s not the long hoped-for “Office” reunion. But fans will still have something to look forward to this October when stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey reunite for a new podcast.
Called “Office Ladies,” podcast company Stitcher told CNN it will be “the ultimate podcast for nostalgic fans.”
“As we close in on the 15th anniversary of the show, it seemed like a great time to share our stories and behind-the-scenes trivia with fans,” said Fischer, who played character Pam Beesly during the NBC show’s nine-season run, in a statement reported by CNN.
Every week, Fischer and Kinsey — who, unlike their TV counterparts, are real-life best friends — will discuss a different episode of “The Office,” share stories from behind the scenes and answer fan questions.
It’s been six years since the show’s finale aired, but it remains as popular as ever. According to Nielsen data, reported by Variety, the series was streamed on Netflix for about 52 billion minutes in 2018. The series will leave Netflix to move to NBC’s own streaming platform, which is still in the works, in 2021.
Entertainment Weekly quotes Kinsey as saying, “‘The Office’ was such an amazing chapter of our lives and it means so much to us that we get to share some of our memories of filming it with our audiences.” She added, “Snuggle up next to me and Jenna on the sofa and let’s rewatch ‘The Office’ together!”
“Office Ladies” will be available starting Oct. 16 on Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other podcast platforms.
