We still haven’t heard much from NBC on whether “The Office” will return for a ninth season, and if it does, which members of the cast will return with it.
One of the show’s stars, however, says the actors are all willing to do another year.
“It’s not up to me, because I’m just the actor, but the actors are all prepared and wanting to come back,” Jenna Fischer tells The Hollywood Reporter. “The whole cast, I’m talking about everybody — Ed [Helms], John [Krasinski], me, everyone is wanting to come back. So it’s really just a matter of NBC pulling the trigger.”
And, of course, getting everyone signed. Fischer, Helms, Krasinski and B.J. Novak don’t have contracts in place for next season. The “Office” team is working on a spinoff for Rainn Wilson, and Mindy Kaling has her own pilot at FOX.
Still, Fischer tells the HR, “We’re really excited to come back, everybody wants to come back. I know Rainn does have his show, but he’s going to come back to ‘The Office’ as well. So yeah, we’re just waiting.”
