Jenna Fischer told the Hollywood Reporter that claims of The Office departures have been exaggerated. She explained:
"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. They have to announce it by May 15 when the upfronts happen, right? So we're all just waiting. 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."
