NBC in talks to revive The Office

Ready for more mishaps and mayhem at Dunder Mifflin?

Series star Steve Carell would not be involved in this new installment, which would continue the misadventures of the officemates at the Dunder-Mifflin paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Fans of The Office get excited: NBC is reportedly planning to revive your favourite show.

According to a new report published by TVLine, a revival of The Office is in the works at NBC. Sources close to the outlet confirm that the network is considering bringing the hit workplace comedy back to life for the 2018-2019 television broadcast season.

Bob Greenblatt, the network president, told reporters a month before the premiere of the "Will & Grace" reboot that "The Office" was on his wish list for future reboots, along with "30 Rock". NBC executives have commented in the past about their desire for an Office reboot, but the idea never seemed imminent.

"We often talk about 'The Office, '" Greenblatt told the publication. It's always, 'Maybe someday, but not now.' There is certainly an open invitation, but we don't have anything happening right now. It starred Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Craig Robinson, Mindy Kaling, and B.J. Novak among others. "And if he were to be in charge of it, I can't imagine that I wouldn't want to help out in some way, or write, and I feel like probably the rest of the cast feels the same". This is particularly impressive given that the British TV show created by Ricky Gervais that it was based on ran for only two seasons for a total of 12 episodes (plus two specials!). The characters, they had arcs.

"I don't think it'll ever happen", she said.

With Will & Grace, NBC introduced a new type of revival that includes the original cast, creators and director.
