The Office Revival in Early Development For Late 2018 Premiere

'The Office' Revival at NBC Featuring Old, New Cast — 2018-19 Season | TVLine

Get your staplers out of their Jello because U.S. network NBC is reportedly looking to revive beloved sitcom The Office for the 2018-2019 season. "We often talk about The Office", the exec told our sister site Deadline.

NBC and producers Universal Television declined comment. However, Steve Carell's Michael Scott, a.k.a the heart and soul of The Office, will not be involved in the new series.

"I've talked to (showrunner) Greg (Daniels) four times over the past few years". There is certainly an open invitation, but we don't have anything happening right now. "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". The report clearly calls for a continuation of the story of Scranton's Dunder Mifflin offices. "That's what she said!"

The Office, which is a spinoff from the British show created by Ricky Gervais, ran for nine seasons from 2005-2013.

However, considering that Dwight actually owns the Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch building, don't be surprised to see him back in the mix pretty heavily. The cast will reportedly feature a mixture of new and familiar faces, but who will return is not clear.

NBC's Will & Grace revival has been a critical and commercial success for the network. It became the platform that boosted the careers of Carell, John Krasinski, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper, Mindy Kaling, and Rainn Wilson.
