19 December 2017

'The revival would once again be set at Dunder Mifflin's Scranton, Pa., branch and feature a mix of new and old cast members, ' the source shared.

Hot on the success of the return of Will & Grace, NBC is looking to revive another of its beloved comedies: The Office.

Creator Greg Daniels is reportedly attached to the project and a search for the new cast is underway.

"I loved working on the show and I was there for eight years", Kaling said on The Talk back in September. TVLine first reported news of a possible revival.

"It's always, 'Maybe someday, but not now".

While the original USA edition turned the likes of Carell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, Ellie Kemper, Mindy Kailing, Ed Helms and Craig Robinson into household names, a source tells Variance it's unlikely any of them would appear in the new version, although Wilson could somehow be an exception. "If he wants to do it, I would do it".

Speaking on Variety's "Remote Controlled" podcast in November, Fischer had expressed doubt that a new installment of the show would ever take place.

"The Office, ' based on a BBC series of the same name, ran for nine seasons between 2005 and 2013". "That's what she said!" As "The Office" continued for several years, many of those characters were elevated from the background and wound up with their own storylines and histories.

The revival is in the planning phases mainly because the return of NBC's Will & Grace proved to be a hit.
