(Newser) – A "gaping hole" is about to be filled. Since going off the air in 2013, the American version of The Office has been relegated to Netflix, but two of the sitcom's stars are now reinvigorating the show with a new podcast, the Daily Dot reports. Jenna Fischer, who played Pam Beesly, and Angela Kinsey, who portrayed Angela Martin, are launching a podcast in which they'll pick out one episode of the show each week and discuss it. The announcement of the new venture first came from podcast company Stitcher to CNN, which notes Fischer and Kinsey are best pals in real life.

On Stitcher's Earwolf comedy network, the pair will dish about happenings off-camera, as well as field calls from fans for each episode they review. "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," Fischer said in a statement. "Besides talking about The Office, you can also hear us chat a little about our lives, our Target runs together, our friendship through the years." The podcast's working title: Office Ladies. It's set to debut Oct. 16 on Stitcher, Apple, Spotify, and other platforms. (Episodes of The Office will be moving from Netflix to NBCUniversal in 2021.)
