With speculation that a 10th season of the US version of The Office is nigh, Kate Holman recommends a podcast based on the mockumentary.
Fans of the US version of The Office, rejoice! Amid the constant pleas for a TV reunion, the next best thing has arrived in the form of a new podcast, Office Ladies.
The Office co-stars and real-life best friends Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey take a trip down memory lane and relive each episode from their unique perspective.
They dish the dirt on cast members and reveal what went on behind the scenes in each episode of the hit series.
When The Office premiered in the US in 2005, diehard fans of the British version struggled to get on board the American retelling. However, the show came into its own when the script diverted from the UK original in series two.
It didn’t take long for audiences on this side of the pond to fall in love with the zany characters and the hilarious everyday office dramas and mischief of the workers at the Dunder Mifflin paper company.
Fischer and Kinsey dissect each episode of The Office in the weekly podcast, revealing the set secrets, cast in-jokes, Easter eggs and improvised scenes that made it into the final cut.
Edging closer towards that long-awaited reunion, the podcast also welcomes the occasional guest co-star, with Rainn Wilson, who played Dwight, and Brian Baumgartner, who played Kevin, sharing their experiences of working on the show.
Whether you’re a fan wanting nostalgic second viewings or a devotee of the original UK series finally ready to take the plunge into the much-loved American remake, Office Ladies comes at the perfect time to brighten up these long winter evenings.
