NBC is putting a revival of The Office in the works. NBC is eyeing a continuation of the critically-aclaimed mockumentary for the 2018-2019 season.
The revival would take place at the familiar Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch. The show would feature a cast of new and old characters. Steve Carell, who starred as Michael Scott,, will not be involved in the revival. The search for a new regional-manager is said to be in the works, meaning that it’s unlikely that we’ll see the return of Rainn Wilson or Angela Kinsey.
Several characters are unlikely to return because of how their stories concluded. Steve Carell, Mindy Kaling, and B.J. Novak exited before the series ended. John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Craig Robinson moved to San Antonio to pursue Jim’s company Athleap. It will be interesting to see who returns to the hit series.
NBC president Bob Greenblatt revealed that his revival wish list included The Office among others. “We often talk about The Office,” Greenblatt said. “I’ve talked to Greg [Daniels] four times over the past few years. It’s always, ‘Maybe someday, but not now’. There is certainly an open invitation, but we don’t have anything happening right now. If he wants to do it, I would do it.”
Dwight Shrute, a salesman who takes his job very, very, seriously. Jim Halpert, a salesman who is the office cool guy and prankster. And Pam Beesly, the receptionist who is engaged but who is also the crush of someone else in the office. With these characters, the daily anticts of this branch is anything about normal.
All 9 Seasons of the The Office are now streaming!
