The Office continues to be a popular NBC sitcom for viewers everywhere despite having ended in 2013. Now, about a decade later, it’s been revealed that a reboot of The Office is on the way.
Interestingly, as shared by journalist Matt Belloni via Puck, the US show’s original adaptor and showrunner, Greg Daniels, is set to return. This news comes just after the WGA announced that a tentative deal has been made with the AMPTP, ending their strike.
This is no doubt an exciting announcement for fans. After all, as mentioned, The Office continues to captivate new fans every year while returning viewers continue to revisit the hit series. It certainly seems like the right time for a revival.
Of course, it’s also worth noting that many of the show’s cast members, such as John Krasinski and Mindy Kaling, have all been busy with other projects. As such, it’s unknown if they could possibly return to reprise their roles for a reboot. Additionally, there are no cast details at this time, so it’s possible that a reboot could focus on a new group of characters altogether.
Nevertheless, with Greg Daniels returning to helm the reboot, it’s clearly going to be in good hands. Hopefully we’ll have more details on that front soon. It’s worth adding that SAG-AFTRA is still on strike as of this writing, but with the WGA having made a deal, it’s likely their turn will come soon. In which case, it’s possible that we’ll learn more about the reboot’s potential cast. For now, all we know is that there does indeed appear to be a reboot in development.
Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any additional updates regarding the reboot of The Office as we have them. For now, it’s good to see that so many projects will be headed back on track with the strike over.
