NBC looking to revive 'The Office'

Only NBC knows, and by 2018, so might The Office's most devoted fans. Focused on Michael Scott and his team at Dunder Mifflin, The Office focused on the daily life of the paper company's employees through a mockumentary style.

Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the Peacock network is eyeing a continuation of the beloved workplace comedy for the 2018-2019 season.

Just months after bringing back Will & Grace, NBC appears to be making serious moves to revive The Office.

There is some sad news though because this new revival of the show will not star Steve Carell as the character of Michael Scott.




Steve Carell, Mindy Kaling, and B.J. Novak left before the series wrapped. The relationship between Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) and Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) was a memorable highlight, while Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) finally claimed his dream job as Regional Manager.

NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt has speculated on the possibility of the show's return before, telling Deadline in August that the network execs "often talk about The Office", and that if Greg Daniels, the creator of the USA version of the show, was interested, NBC would also be interested. He told Deadline that he's opened the door for "The Office" helmer Greg Daniels to make a revival project happen, but there's been no rumors of traction on that invitation until now.

While some are divided over the idea of an Office reboot, NBC has had success with the recent revival of the early 2000s sitcom Will & Grace, and there's no doubt that Dundler-Mifflin devotees would have fun predicting what's next for the characters. It's always, "Maybe someday, but not now".
