While appearing at the Edinburgh International TV Festival, Rovner told Deadline that "We're standing by," when it comes to bringing the fan favorite sitcom back and that it will happen "whenever [The Office creator] Greg Daniels wants to do one."

Although there are no formal plans, the 58-year-old television producer told E! News that after the series created a new home at the Peacock streaming platform, that a reunion is "probably more likely now that the show is on Peacock, but [there are] no plans right now certainly."

He further explained that although reuniting all of the show's characters would be fun, the show had already tied up some loose ends in the finale. "People are more open to it now it seems," he dished. "The issue is — what is left to be said about the characters?"

"The weird thing about that is when we ended it, we jumped forward a year and a lot of them aren't working there anymore. It would be fun to find some lost episodes and shoot them as if they were back in 2010 or something," the creator of the Emmy winning show said.

The only major setback may be the fact that the screenwriter has a loaded schedule at the moment. "It's not impossible. It's not impossible for sure. I would want to be involved, and I've got two other shows I'm working on right now," Daniels told Collider back in January of this year.

The comedy hosted an all-star cast that included the likes of Steve Carrell, John Krasinski, Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak and Jenna Fischer.
