NBC Wants to Revive The Office for 2018

NBC Wants to Revive The Office for 2018

The network's president Bob Greenblatt recently told reporters that the show was on his wish-list of comebacks, alongside 30 Rock, following the recent critical and commercial success of the Will & Grace revival, including receiving Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical (for Eric McCormack) and Best Musical or Comedy TV Series. A search is underway to find a new star to take over as the show's Michael Scott-like regional manager of paper supply company Dunder Mifflin.

Citing sources, the website said the new show would feature a combination of returning cast members and newcomers. The original version of The Office, which ran for just two seasons and two Christmas specials, was written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

With Carell not being involved in the new series, fans can still look forward to other favourites returning including Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper and Mindy Kaling. Following the success of the recent revival of the classic Nineties sitcom, American broadcaster NBC has announced plans to reboot the USA version of The Office - the long-running adaptation of Ricky Gervais's star-making hit that ran from 2005 until 2013.

The Office ran for nine seasons on NBC before closing its doors in 2013.

So it will be interesting to see who returns and in what role. "Most people expect me to be a bitch, but it's usually the opposite. If he wants to do it, I would do it", he said. However, that seemed less sanctioned by the network and more like a comedian pulling a fast one on fans.

NBC had no official comment to TV Line regarding the reported revival consideration.
