'The Office' Season 9: Jenna Fischer Says Cast Is Ready

"The Office" cast wants to stay put, according to series star Jenna Fischer. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fischer said everybody -- including John Krasinski and Ed Helms -- wants to come back for a Season 9. The only catch? NBC hasn't renewed the long-running comedy.

"The whole cast, I'm talking about everybody -- Ed [Helms], John [Krasinski], me, everyone -- is wanting to come back," she told THR. "So it's really just a matter of NBC pulling the trigger."

Rumors have swirled about a cast exodus and possible reboot for weeks. James Spader will depart at the end of Season 8 and contracts for key players Fischer, Helms, B.J. Novak and Krasinski are up.

Plus, writer/actress Mindy Kaling shot a pilot for Fox and Helms will guest star in Kaling's pilot as a possibly love interest for her character.
