Wearing a Dunder Mifflin T-shirt, she took to Instagram to say after watching one episode a day, she and her kids have finished all nine seasons of the show. The finale brought her to tears.
Garner narrated a video of herself crying.
“You’ll never guess which show my kids and I watched an episode a day of through quarantine and guess what? We finished it, and guess what? It gave me some really big feelings,” she said.
“Look who needed a big cry and maybe a shower would have been helpful, but it’s just nice to know you can still just feel so passionate about something, right? So thank you. If you’ve ever heard of the show, ‘The Office,’ you should try it. It’s wonderful.”
Garner wrote alongside the video: “My kids and I have spent months piled on the couch working our way through ‘How to Behave as Grownups’, aka #TheOffice. Apparently we are sensitive people — the finale hit us pretty hard. When I realized I’d accidentally shot my farewell testimonial in slo-mo I realized: your Monday might need this, too.”
She also signed off by using one of the show’s famous lines, “Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.”
Stars of The Office noticed Garner’s emotional video and left sweet comments on her Instagram post.
“This is the sweetest and most wonderful post!” Jenna Fischer, who played Pam on the show, wrote. “Sending you lots of love. And if you want to start over, @angelakinsey and I are re-watching for the podcast. We are in the middle of Season 3 and have major feelings about lots of moments.”
Kinsey, who starred as Angela, also reacted.
“Omg!! @jennifer.garner I am only just seeing this (we had no air conditioning for the day so long story short but I’m only just catching up on things)!! I love this,” she wrote. “I love you and your family and just so you know the finale makes me bawl my eyes out too!”
Mindy Kaling, aka Kelly, left a heart emoji.
