Fans of cult NBC comedy series The Office received a rude awakening back in spring of 2013 when the series ended on its 9th and final nine season. Nearly 5 years later and fans have been gifted with a second coming of the series with a 10th season announced to make a debut.
Sources have reportedly confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the network intends to reboot the beloved Steve Carell-starred series, which was part of the NBC's Thursday night comedy vertical.
The Carell, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper, Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer-starred show catapulted the afforementioned names to stardom, becoming a fast was award show shoo-in with multiple Emmys and Golden Globes under its belt. Now, the series is getting another chance to swoon fans and critics.
TVLine was the first to report the news, stating that NBC is eyeing to reboot The Office for the 2018-2019 television season. So yes, you could very well be getting your fix of new episodes as early as next year.
One caveat to consider, however, is that Michael Scott – played by Steve Carell –won't be returning to the show. Carell exited the series after season seven, and returned once again for the series finale in 2013. However, a search is already underway to find a new star to take over as Dunder Mifflin's regional manager. While NBC is being hush hush about the revival thus far, this does look like a sure thing. With this in mind, 2018 could already be looking up for all of us.
