The cast of The Office US are reuniting for a new series — but there's a catch.

The show officially ended back in 2013, with rumours and dismissals of a revival being in circulation for years without ever producing a result.

Now, a reunion of sorts is finally happening, as The Office US actresses Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly) and Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin) are launching a spin-off comedy podcast.

Titled Office Ladies, the podcast will see the ladies break down an Office episode and share behind-the-scenes trivia, while also answering fan questions.

"I’m excited to be working with my best friend Angela Kinsey," Fischer said in a statement (via Entertainment Weekly).

"So many memories are flooding in as we go back and watch the episodes – many of which I haven’t seen since they aired. As we close in on the 15th anniversary of the show, it seemed like a great time to share our stories and behind-the-scenes trivia with fans."

Kinsey added: "The Office was such an amazing chapter of our lives and it means so much to us that we get to share some of our memories of filming it with our audiences.

"There’ll be lots of behind-the-scenes stories and lots of us just being BFFs.

"So come on! What are you waiting for? Snuggle up next to me and Jenna on the sofa and let’s rewatch The Office together!"

We're sold.

Office Ladies will premiere on October 16.
