The Office is a series that had one hell of a lifespan in the United States. Despite only being two short seasons in the original U.K. version, it managed to last a ridiculous nine seasons from 2005 to 2013. It’s been half a decade since the series ended, and few would argue that it hadn’t overstayed its welcome by that point.
That being said, it sounds like NBC is ready to throw a revival for the show. According to TVLine, NBC is getting ready to go forward with a continuation of the comedy series. They’ll be reportedly shooting for the 2018-2019 TV season for this one.
Steve Carell, who played the original regional branch manager in the series, will not be involved in the show, and it’s still up in the air as to just how many of the main core cast of the original series will be present. The new series will be a mix of old and new cast members.
This comes on the heels of a successful relaunch of the sitcom Will & Grace, which has apparently done NBC pretty well. With that in mind, it makes sense why they’d turn their attention to another successful property. Let’s hope that they’ll be able to come up with a good reason for this show to exist, as we’d hate for it just to be a pathetic retread of the original.
