Fans of The Office rejoice! Rainn Wilson and Steve Carell reunited for the season finale of Wilson's IGTV series Hey There, Human. The old friends took the time to joke around as well as reflect on the hit show.

It didn't take long for the former Assistant (To The) Regional Manager to begin poking fun at his old boss. "Steve is using my Instagram because he has no Instagram because he's so old," Wilson teased as Carell attempted to connect through the host's account.

"I was mocking you. I said you don't have an Instagram because you're so old, even though essentially you're three years older than me," the actor continued once his old castmate was on the screen. The former Michael Scott joined in on the joke, "In spirit, I am many more years older than you though. I'm decrepit."

The co-stars went on to discuss their time on set and the actors' appreciation for the dedicated fanbase the series attracted over the years. "I don't know if you feel the same thing, but the people who watch the show definitely know the show better than we do," Steve said.

"Maybe we watched it once when we'd all get together and watch episodes. That was most of my watching of the show," he then confessed. "So I don't know all the details, and when people reference lines and bits... some of them don't really ring a bell at all." Seems like the legends themselves didn't remember some of the most iconic bits!

The Hollywood big names discussed the "strange Office obsession" that viewers have. "It's great that it caught on like it did because we all felt that it was special when we were doing it," Carell noted. This mini-reunion is probably as good of an excuse as any to re-watch the binge-worthy comedy!
