  • - We've got eight questions that The Office's new podcast

  • had better answer.

  • Attention, Office fans, grab your World's Best Boss mugs

  • and Dwight bobble-heads, you're going to want to sit down

  • for this because The Office is coming back!

  • - Oh my god, okay, it's happening!

  • - In podcast form.

  • Well, not an official podcast.

  • You might say it's a Jenna Fisch-ial podcast

  • because former Office stars Jenna Fischer,

  • who played receptionist-artist-turned salesperson,

  • Pam Beesley-Halpert, and Angela Kinsey,

  • who played everyone's favorite cat-loving,

  • karaoke-singing accountant, Angela Martin-Schrute,

  • are teaming up to host a new podcast,

  • aptly called Office Ladies.

  • On the podcast, the pair will break down

  • every episode of The Office, answer fan questions,

  • and review behind-the-scenes secrets.

  • - It's gonna be mental!

  • It's going to be mental.

  • - And it's no secret that we here at Nerdist

  • are huge Office fans, so we are obviously super excited

  • for this series, but what do we wanna hear

  • from Jenna and Angela?

  • Well, there are still a lot of questions left over

  • from the nine season run of The Office,

  • and while some of those questions have already

  • been answered, for example, Jenna Fischer

  • recently revealed what Pam said to Michael

  • in Michael's final episode of The Office.

  • "That was me talking to Steve.

  • "I told him all the ways I was going to miss him

  • "when he left our show.

  • "Those were real tears and a real goodbye.

  • "That was a really emotional scene."

  • Aw, well, that doesn't explain what Pam

  • would've said to Micheal in the universe of The Office,

  • meaning that's still an unanswered question

  • left by The Office.

  • Now we've had a few theories

  • about other Office hypotheticals,

  • like who was the real Scranton Strangler,

  • and why was the documentary being filmed

  • in the first place?

  • These and many other threads left in the air

  • are prime for discussion on the new Office podcast.

  • So what are some of these other questions

  • that were left behind, let's break them all down.

  • - Yeah, I have a lot of questions.

  • Number one: how dare you?

  • - (laughing) Starting off with a theory we just mentioned,

  • the Scranton Strangler.

  • While we have discovered borderline conclusive evidence

  • that Toby is the murderer--

  • - You are the silent killer, go back to the annex.

  • - You'll see. - Well, the show itself

  • has never given us a definitive answer.

  • Maybe Jenna and Angela will finally dish

  • on the specifics of this one.

  • And speaking of Toby, our next unanswered Office question:

  • what is the origin of Michael's hatred of Toby?

  • - You are the worst, I hate looking at your face.

  • I wanna smash it!

  • - While Toby is the subject of Michael's ire

  • throughout the series, we never really get a backstory

  • on just why Michael hates Toby so much.

  • - I hate

  • so much about the things that you choose to be.

  • - Well, in terms of the podcast,

  • it would be exciting to learn of how that relationship

  • got its start, and how things went very,

  • very wrong between these two characters.

  • Another character's backstory we never got was Louanne.

  • You might remember some additional Office employees

  • in the holes of Dunder Mifflin, Scranton,

  • from the first three seasons who never seem to speak

  • or get any sort of context or origin.

  • What happened to these people?

  • What happened to Louanne?

  • Jenna and Angela, tell us the truth.

  • From questions about the characters

  • to more existential questions,

  • like why was the documentary of The Office

  • being filmed in the first place?

  • Though, we did a story about this awhile back.

  • Our theory was a little bit dark.

  • So we'd love some clarification from people

  • who were actually on the show at the time.

  • Was it because an employee of Dunder Mifflin

  • committed suicide, or was it just a look

  • at typical Office life?

  • Office Ladies, we're lookin' to you for answers.

  • - There is a massive conspiracy going on here,

  • and I know you're involved. - Dwight, get out

  • of my nook! - Well, staying

  • on the topic of documentaries, we all remember

  • Michael showing up in the finale of the series

  • to deliver one last,

  • "That's what she said," at Dwight's wedding.

  • - That's what she said. - But why wasn't he present

  • for the panel discussion about the documentary?

  • Well, it's evident that Michael's absence

  • was probably trying to maintain the impact

  • of Steve Carell's surprise at the wedding,

  • there's, again, no in-universe explanation for this.

  • Considering Michael's love of cinema

  • and his involvement in the documentary,

  • it's weird that he wasn't there for the discussion.

  • On Office Ladies, we're guessing there will be

  • a lot to talk about in terms of Dwight

  • due to Angela and Dwight's seasons-long relationship.

  • One question we have about Dwight

  • is from all the way back in season two.

  • In the episode, Drug Testing, Dwight mentions

  • that, "I like the people that I work with, generally.

  • "With four exceptions."

  • Now, we might be able to guess.

  • We don't know if we're sure who are these exceptions,

  • who does Dwight hate more than anybody else?

  • We're pretty sure Jim is one of them.

  • - Buttlicker, our prices have never been lower!

  • - Stop it! - One character we're not sure

  • if Dwight hates or not is Creed,

  • and there's one lingering concern we have about Creed

  • that we hope Jenna and Angela answer on the podcast.

  • Why did Creed need a third chair?

  • - When Pam gets Michael's old chair, I get Pam's old chair,

  • and I'll have two chairs.

  • Only one to go.

  • - But what did he need these three chairs for?

  • Well, Creed Bratton, the actor who plays Creed Bratton,

  • shed some light on this during a Reddit AMA

  • that left us with even more questions.

  • When asked, "What did you need three chairs for?"

  • Creed said, "To climb up into my hidden cubicle

  • "in the warehouse where I store all the things

  • "I stole from the company."

  • A hidden cubicle?

  • What's in there, what has Creed been stealing

  • all these years, and what exactly was Creed's job

  • this whole time? - If I can't scuba,

  • then what's this all been about?

  • What am I working toward?

  • - Questions like these are why we're really

  • looking forward to the podcast.

  • Finally, something fans have been curious about

  • since the Office went off the air

  • is everyone's status after the show.

  • What are the characters up to?

  • Who still works at Dunder Mifflin?

  • What is Michael doing right now?

  • Which couples are still together?

  • Even if it's just Jenna and Angela hypothesizing,

  • it'll be interesting to get their takes

  • on the whole Scranton gang.

  • While we might not get answers

  • to all of these Office questions, we're excited

  • to hear more about the inside workings of Dunder Mifflin.

  • And it'll be great to get an Office fix

  • in the lead-up to its Netflix departure

  • before it heads to the NBC streaming service

  • in a year or so.

  • But what do you folks think?

  • Are you excited for Office Ladies?

  • What questions do you hope

  • that they answer about the Office?

  • And which two Office characters would you

  • most want to host a podcast?

  • Jim and Pam, Michael and Dwight,

  • maybe Kelly and Ryan?

  • Kevin and Stanley here, 100%, but let's discuss.

  • Thanks for watching.
