Word was going around that an Office revival was in the works, but months have gone and we haven’t gotten any significant update. With the show coming to NBC’s streaming service, Peacock, showrunner Greg Daniels has implied that a revival is now more likely.
Talking to E! Online about a potential revival for The Office, Daniels says:
“I think it’s probably more likely now the show’s on Peacock, but no plans right now certainly. People are more open to it now, it seems. The issue is, what is left to be said about the characters. There’s been some talk of maybe a Friends-style reunion kind of thing. I don’t know. It’s still kind of vague.”
When asked what a reunion could be about, Daniels said that maybe they could just shoot something in the vein of a ‘lost episode’ and just shoot it like it was still 2010. With a lot of The Office characters having moved on from Dunder Mifflin by the finale, it wouldn’t make sense for all of them to still be together 10 years later.
If anything, they could just go the meta approach and shoot the reunion like an actual reunion between the characters of the The Office. Maybe they can even bring back other guest stars like Rashida Jones (Karen) or Idris Elba (Charles Miner). I would definitely love to see how Jan’s doing years after she broke things off with Michael.
A reunion has not been officially announced, but for now, you can check out The Office on Peacock, along with some never-before-seen extras and goodies.
