Steve Carell Pretends 'The Office' Is Renewed with Cruel Twitter Joke
Published Jan 18, 2017The recent news of Will & Grace being renewed has been met with overwhelming excitement from fans of network TV sitcoms, but Steve Carell got people's hopes up with an unnecessarily cruel tweet.
The actor who played Dunder-Mifflin regional manager Michael Scott decided to pull a fast one on his fans by pretending the show was coming back to television.
The American version of The Office ran from 2005 to 2013. The thought of a reboot isn't entirely far-fetched — after all, Ricky Gervais has revisited his David Brent character multiple times, most recently in the 2016 film Life on the Road.
Get in on Steve Carell's cruel joke below.
