Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and the devotion of a certain, cherished mockumentary sitcom has only grown stronger over the years. That’s why NBC Universal’s top brass has said that a reboot of The Office will happen… as soon as creator Greg Daniels is ready to retread that path.
Fans of the NBC sitcom The Office have had a difficult time in the years since the show ended in 2013. We’ve had games and a recently planned podcast debut, to name a few. Nothing has ever been enough for die-hard Dunder-Mifflin fans. Until now, that is.
Because, after much fan outrage, NBC has finally declared that an Office reboot is in the works. In 2021, it will debut alongside the new NBC streaming network.
And, as you can think, supporters are ecstatic about the news. The Office is one of NBC’s most popular sitcoms. It aired from 2005 until 2013 and may still be found on a number of streaming sites.
This means that, despite the fact that it has come to an end, it has never truly left the cultural zeitgeist. It is based on a British series of the same name, which began in 2001 and included Ricky Gervais.
It’s still quite popular today, and you can watch it on Amazon Prime. We strongly advise you to watch it if you haven’t already.
Possibility of the Reboot :
Susan Rovner, NBC Universal Chairman of Entertainment, tells that, “Anytime Greg Daniels wants to do one, we’re standing by.” Susan Rovner initially responded with “No comment” when asked about initiatives for The Office reboot during a panel discussion, implying something was in the works.
Daniels has been occupying himself with projects like the since-concluded Parks & Recreations, and more recently, reuniting with Steve Carell for Netflix’s Space Force. NBC paid approximately US$500 million to reclaim the stateside streaming rights from Netflix for its own fledgling content platform, Peacock.
“It’s not impossible for sure,” Greg Daniels previously told Collider. “I’d like to be a part of it, but I’m now working on two other shows.”
Despite the fact that the final episode of The Office aired in 2013, the show’s popularity hasn’t waned. In addition to the continuous rise in streaming audiences throughout the world, an official Spotify podcast was established this time last year to mark the occasion.
What is the opinion of the cast?
Actor Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone) – crowned Cameo’s top leader in 2020. There were also comments about The Office’s reunion program from Daniels himself on the show’s positive side.
“Now that the show is in Peacock, people appear to be more accepting of it today.” “What about the characters?” I believe the problem is.
“The funny thing is that we finished it a year ago, and most of them are no longer employed there.”
“Jim and Pam live in Texas now with Darryl … But it would be fun to go find lost episodes and shoot them like they’re back in 2010 or something.
Daniels did, however, later notice that there were no concrete plans and the ideas were “vague”. He mocked the possibility of taking an unwritten route such as a reunion of friends, as well as a special reunion of another topic in NBC’s hot topic, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Good news? Many members of The Office are seen as a reunion game. John Krasinski (Jim Halpert) expressed interest a few years ago, given how “it was all” for him and his “beginning and end”.
Supporting actors Oscar Nunez (Oscar Martinez), Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer), and Andy Buckley (David Wallace) also threw their hats into the ring, with Nunez shooting to deal with certain problems. Baumgartner, Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly), and the involvement of Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin) in the ongoing podcasts about The Office are likely to speak for themselves.
Will Steve Carell join the reboot?
The only major hurdle is based on Steve Carell (Michael Scott), who left after the end of the seventh season of the show. Bloke doesn’t seem to like much of a possible restart of The Office, either.
“There’s been a resurgence of interest in the game, and we’ve talked about bringing it back,” Carell explained to Esquire.
“But unless I don’t think that’s a good idea, it may not be possible to do that show today and people will accept it the way it was ten years ago.”
“The weather is different. I mean, the whole idea of that character – Michael Scott – much of it was about misconduct. I mean, he’s not a role model. Much of what is presented in that program is completely wrong. That’s the point, you know? But I’m not sure how that will turn out right now.”
“Today, there is a great level of awareness of aggressiveness, which is a positive thing. But, on the other hand, taking such a person literally does not work… I believe you were present with those individuals at the time and felt comfortable.”
“It had a certain something about it. There’s a strange way of putting it, but I adore it and want to do it again. In my heart at the moment, it was really precious to me.”
