One of the more classic TV comedy series in the past decade or so probably has to be US version The Office, a spin-off from the British comedy of the same name created by Ricky Gervais. The series ran from 2005-2013 and if you couldn’t get enough of it, you might be pleased to learn that a revival could be in the works.
According to a report from TVLine, it seems that NBC is looking to revive the series for the 2018-2019 season. Details are scarce for now, but the show is expected to comprise of characters from the previous series as well introduce some newcomers. Unfortunately if you were hoping to see Steve Carell return in his role of Michael Scott, apparently that will not be happening.
NBC has yet to officially confirm anything, but network president Bob Greenblatt had previously told Deadline that The Office was one of the series on his wishlist of shows he’d like to see revived. “We often talk about The Office. 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.”
In any case if the series has indeed been confirmed for a revival and is set for the 2018-2019 season, we guess we should have the official details soon enough.
