NBC set to revive The Office in 2018

The Office Thanksgiving episode

NBC had intended on Rainn Wilson's character Dwight Schrute to get his own spin-off show, following the "backdoor pilot" episode "The Farm", which took place in The Office's ninth season, but following the bad reviews that the episode received, NBC decided not to pick the show up.

TVLine reports that although Steve Carell would not be returning as Michael Scott, all the rest of the employees of Dunder-Mifflin's Scranton Branch would be present. A new version of the show will air during the 2018-2019 TV season, TV Line reported today. Would you be interested in an Office revival?

Bob Greenblatt, the network president, told reporters a month before the premiere of the "Will & Grace" reboot that "The Office" was on his wish list for future reboots, along with "30 Rock". "We often talk about The Office". It's always, "Maybe someday, but not now". "If he wants to do it, I would do it", he said.

In addition to Carell and Wilson, the show also made stars out of John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson and Mindy Kaling, among others.

"I don't think it'll ever happen", she said. 'I would do it if there was some circumstance where everybody got back together, and could be brought back together in some incredible way, I would say yes.

Little else is known about the alleged "The Office" continuation at this time.

But so far, all we know is that NBC is taking the first steps to bringing the show back, no doubt encouraged by the critical and financial success of the revival of Will and Grace.
