However, director Paul Feig stated to news outlets a reunion would be nearly impossible unless the whole cast got on board.

"I know they’ve talked about trying to do a new Office. For me The Office is that cast. Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Rainn [Wilson], Jenna [Fischer] and the whole gang."

Painful Goodbye

The actor had a lot to unpack on the pod with the ladies. Carell reflected on his exit from the show and how emotional shooting his final episode for the NBC series was.

Perfect Timing

While acknowledging the emotional part of the exit, he didn't fail to admit the timing was right on track.

"It was time for other characters to step to the forefront and other storylines to be pursued, I think it was the right .... The timing was right, I think for everybody but simultaneously there's just a sense of joy for me that we had experienced all of this and we were getting... I was getting a chance to take a lap with everybody."

Breaking Down The Last Two Episodes

The Despicable Me actor spoke at length about the set-up of the final two episodes.

"And the way those last two episodes were structured, it felt very rich to me to simultaneously be saying goodbye as Michael and us as friends in this moment of work together. But, yeah, it was a lot, it was a very emotional thing."

Wave Of Emotions

Kinsey spoke about the emotional rollercoaster they all experienced in their final moments on set.

"It was just hitting us in waves I remember. We would laugh one minute and then be tearing up the next. But like you said, it was because we'd had such a good run, we'd had such a good time."

While Carell added, "Incredible, just incredible."

Carell Left The Lead Role For A Bit

The actor left the leading role in the series after seven seasons. His exit saw Ed Helm play the lead role in the series until he went to work on the third Hangover film.

Carell Returns

The actor, however, returned as Michael Scott in the series finale and ninth season in May 2013 titled "Finale", where he surprised fans by showing up at Dwight and Angela's wedding.

Keeping It Under Wraps

John Krasinski explained how they kept his return under wraps from his co-stars and everyone else.

"It was so thrilling. We all just flat-out lied, I lied to Letterman I have to apologize to him for that at some point. It was just one of those things that we all vowed and had to protect. Look what happened — it was the best. The 'that's what she said' [throwback] was the perfect use of Steve."

Carell In The Finale

The actor didn't disappoint as he uttered Scott's famous line after Dwight was shocked at his presence.

"I can't believe you came," to which Scott replied emotionally, "That's what she said."
