NBC Boss' Revival Wish List: 'The Office', '30 Rock', 'The West Wing' & 'ER'

'The Office' Revival Eyed at NBC

The Office ended in 2013 after eight seasons, but reports are that it's going to be resurrected for the 2018-2019 season, following the success of another revival by the network Will and Grace.

The cast will be a mix of old and new, and it looks fairly unlikely that Steve Carrell, who played the boss of the Dunder Mifflin's Scranton, PA. branch for seven of the show's nine seasons to date will return. It won't be a remake or a reboot and will instead continue the lives of the hapless workforce at the offices of Dunder Mifflin's branch in Scranton, Pennsylvania.


An NBC spokesperson declined to comment.

According to multiple reports, NBC is considering reviving "The Office" for a limited run. A new actor is being sought to for a regional manager character.


Network president Bob Greenblatt has previously said he'd be keen to bring it back if there was interest.

In addition to Carell and Wilson, the show also made stars out of John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson and Mindy Kaling, among others. "It would nearly have to be a scenario where it's 'the lost tapes of The Office,' where you somehow go back in time and there's all of these lost stories where we weirdly look 5 years older".


"I've talked to (showrunner) 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".
