Jenna Fischer, who plays Pam on The Office, has confirmed that Jim and Pam will start the the show’s 8th season expecting their second child. “Pam will be pregnant when the season starts.” Fischer told Vulture.
The writers of The Office conveniently wrote Fischer’s own real life pregnancy into the show.
“When we started shooting that [Valentine’s Day] episode, I thought to myself, if everything goes well, this is going to be a very, very convenient coincidence. And I think I found out I was pregnant when we were shooting that episode.” said Fischer.
Pam and Jim will be trying to keep this a secret from the rest of the office. They tried to do that with Cece, but the entire office knew by the end of the 6th season premiere, so who knows how well that will go.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out especially with James Spader tapped to become Sabre’s new CEO. Fischer also revealed that the new regional manager has been picked. Hopefully whoever it is won’t be as bad as Will Ferrell was.
I’d love it if the new manager was Catherine Tate. Spader will reportedly enter Dunder Miflin/Sabre as the new regional manager and then work his way up to the top of the company. This could give Tate enough time to finish her work in the West End and become the next regional manager of the Scranton branch.Tags: Catherine Tate, Dunder Miflin, James Spader, Jenna Fischer, Jim and Pam, John Krasinski, NBC, The Office, Will Farell
