Tomorrow is Sept. 1, which means Summer is officially over as far as I'm concerned. Time to move on to bigger and better things — like Fall TV! Back at the TCA, I was lucky enough to explore the set of The Office and chat with the cast about the upcoming season, which starts on Sept. 17. We already heard about Pam and Jim's wedding — not to be confused with John Krasinski's real-life engagement to Emily Blunt — but here are a few fun tidbits about what else we can expect in season six:
- Jenna Fischer on trying on Pam's wedding dress: "It really is very neat. Trying on the dresses for Pam was emotional and really felt significant. It feels like she's a person I've been rooting for for so long and to see her finally getting her dream come true is neat."
- Producer Paul Liberstein on what we can expect from Michael: "We're trying to get him a little wackier. We'll see. I enjoy the wacky Michael."
- Liberstein on keeping the show in the actual office: "We're staying in the office a lot more than we did last season. I think there's a kind of a feeling that people enjoy in-the-office stories more when all of the characters are together, interactions between the characters. And so that's — but after 100 episodes, it's hard. But we're trying harder to do it. Some episodes are out."
If the quotes aren't enough for you, NBC has also rolled out two new promo videos to get us fired up. In the season premiere, "Gossip," the cast starts speculating on Pam's secret pregnancy, which of course turns into all kinds of hilarious, yet absurd, rumors about the other co-workers. There are also some cute behind-the-scenes interviews with the actors talking about their on-screen counterparts.
