The Office (US) is certainly one of the best sitcoms in recent times and the fact that now many are getting enlightened with the same is actually very encouraging. The show's nine-season run ended back in 2013 and in spite of the fact that it has been six years since that, the show continues to attract more viewers than ever. The re-runs and availability of streaming services have made the sitcom probably more popular than it was dyeing the time it was on-air.
But, as viewers, we face a major disorder of sorts. and that disorder is called 'The Revival Disorder.' Just when we love a particular love and end up watching it entirely, we wait for years to pass. So, now that years have passed by, we want a revival. A fate that Friends has been facing for the past 15 years now, The Office entered this discussion over a year or so ago.
This was solidified a little more when Bonnie Hammer, the chairperson at NBC universal said, "It is my hope and goal that we do an Office reboot. The Office comes back to us in January 2021. It is my hope that we can figure out what that great reboot would be. We are having conversations."
But leading man Steve Carell aka Michael Scott said, "Because The Office is on Netflix and replaying, a lot more people have seen it recently. nd I think because of that there's been a resurgence in interest in the show, and talk about bringing it back. But apart from the fact that I just don't think that's a good idea, it might be impossible to do that show today and have people accept it the way it was accepted 10 years ago. The climate's different,"
What matters, however, the most is what creator Greg Daniels has to say. So, here's what Daniels said, "It was such a perfect thing that I would hesitate to open it up. We got the chance to end it the way we wanted to end it. It wasn't like we were interrupted in the middle of a run or something. So in a sense, it's completely an artistic whole. But, that said, I don't know, the cast every now and then talks about getting back together in some form, but I don't see it being a reboot like the way Will & Grace was rebooted. My biggest concern would be disappointing the fans. People will watch the entire series and then roll right into watching it again, and to me that means we ended it properly."
The Office will move exclusively to Peacock in 2021.
