The much-beloved sitcom The Office might be over, but Jim and Pam’s love will live on forever — on social media, at least.
John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer’s characters had one of the greatest, sweetest love stories ever shown on television, and saying goodbye to them was one of the hardest parts of saying goodbye to The Office. But now fans are reveling in a very special reunion — one the actors shared with fans on Twitter, effectively causing everyone’s hearts to explode with joy.

Turns out Krasinski is currently starring in the off-Broadway production of Dry Powder, along with Homeland star Claire Danes, and Fischer decided to pop in backstage to say hello. Lucky for us!
Fisher shared a similar tweet, writing the following:

In January, Fischer’s comments about her and Krasinski’s working relationship made headlines when they were misconstrued as her implying that they were actually in love in real life.
“John and I have real chemistry,” Fischer said during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! “There’s like a real part of me that is Pam and a real part of him that’s Jim and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another. But in real life we aren’t totally Pam and totally Jim, so in real life we’re not the perfect match… he was like a type of spouse that I had for a long time, he was my partner and we will always be close because of it.”
Krasinski later defended Fischer, saying her quote was totally misunderstood.
“I think that was wildly misquoted or taken out of context. I’m sure she was trying to say something nice about how genuine that acting relationship was, of bringing a relationship that became popular on screen,” Krasinski told The Daily Beast.
“I think we both feel it’s such an honor to be a part of that relationship. As far as how she was quoted about saying we were ‘genuinely in love,’ I think that was taken wildly out of context and I feel bad for her.”
Whatever. Jim and Pam forever!
