Andrew Baines "Andy" Bernard (born in 1973; Walter Bernard, Jr.) is a fictional character from the U. He becomes Regional Manager at the Scranton branch courtesy of Robert California in the eighth-season premiere following the departure of Michael Scott and Deangelo Vickers, although temporarily is fired and replaced by Nellie Bertram before his reinstatement by new CEO David Wallace. He is introduced as the Regional Director in Charge of Sales at the Stamford branch of paper distribution company Dunder Mifflin in the third-season premiere when Jim Halpert transfers, ultimately merging with the Scranton branch in the episode "The Merger" later in the season.He often references his education at Cornell University, where he was a part of an a cappella group, which contributed to his love for theatrical singing.
His character is insecure, seemingly due to a strained parental relationship, yet demonstrates self-centered and arrogant attitudes. He has no counterpart in the original British version of the series.Although throughout the ninth season, Andy's relationship with Wallace deteriorates from Andy's lack of focus and professionalism, eventually culminating in Andy's voluntary resignation, to his reinstatement as a salesman to his eventual firing again, after Andy begs David Wallace to fire him in order to pursue a singing career.Jim does not consider Pete to be "the new Jim", particularly after speaking with him and finding they have no common interests.Jim reconsiders this when Pete is interviewed by Angela Martin to potentially adopt her cat (something which does not particularly interest Pete), and Jim overhears Pete talking about his hopes and dreams, reminding Jim of his own dreams before he spent years at Dunder-Mifflin. She first appears in "Michael Scott Paper Company", and is referred to by her middle name, Erin, to differentiate herself from Kelly Kapoor. Erin Hannon is the receptionist hired to replace Pam Halpert (after Kevin's brief stint in the job) in "Dream Team"."I feel like I might be expected to say this because it is the last one, but I truly I love this episode so much," Kemper says. Daniels resumed his showrunning duties this season after taking a step back to work on other shows back in Season 4."I really appreciate how much he wanted my own contribution to what this potentially new love interest for Erin should be like and how this affects Erin," Kemper says.Peter Zachary "Pete" Miller is a fictional character on the U. Pete is said to be in his twenties and originally hails from Vermont (much like the actor who plays him). Pete, along with Clark Green, is one of two staff members hired as customer service representatives at the Scranton branch of fictitious paper distributor Dunder Mifflin, replacing the outgoing Kelly Kapoor and Ryan Howard at the start of the show's ninth and final season. He is an original character and has no counterpart in the British version of the series, though his character is noted as having several parallels to Jim Halpert, who in turn is based on Tim Canterbury on the British series.His interests include boxing, tennis, NASCAR, and The Amazing Race. Pete and Clark are introduced in "New Guys" as the new Customer Service Representatives."In a surprising way, Erin is craving a more mature relationship that doesn't depend on acting on a whim.
