"That's What She Said": NBC Flirts with 'The Office' Reboot!
Ah, remember the shenanigans at Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch? Ten years have sped by since we last hung out with Michael, Dwight, Jim, and Pam. Well, buckle up, Office aficionados: NBC might just bring back the paper and printer realness!
"I'm Standing By with Open Arms": The Exec's Stance
In a podcast, Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content at NBCUniversal TV and Streaming, practically sent a carrier pigeon to Greg Daniels: "Whatever Greg Daniels wants to do, I'm standing by with open arms." This comes on the heels of NBC Chairman of Digital Enterprises Bonnie Hammer's 2019 hope-filled statement: "It is my hope and goal that we do an Office reboot." As reported by MovieWeb, NBC is certainly eager to revisit Scranton.
"We Are Having Conversations": Reboot Rendezvous
NBC is no stranger to the reboot game. We’ve seen ‘Bel-Air’ and ‘Saved by the Bell’ make their grand returns on Peacock, and it seems 'The Office' could be the next nostalgic hit to boost the platform. With new original content like Rian Johnson's 'Poker Face' already setting screens on fire, the beloved sitcom's reboot could serve as the cherry on top.
'The Office': A Quick Refresher
For those living under a rock or new to the mockumentary universe, ‘The Office’ focused on the misadventures of the Dunder Mifflin team, led by the well-intentioned but wildly inappropriate Michael Scott. Developed by Greg Daniels, the American version mirrored its British predecessor with a unique documentary style and those classic talking head segments.
What's in the Drawer, Jim?
The possibility of an 'Office' reboot comes at an apt time, echoing the sentiments of a fanbase that's clearly missing those awkward watercooler conversations and "That's what she said" punchlines. The real question now is: What is Greg Daniels waiting for? So if you hear the iconic theme song playing in the distance, don't adjust your TV. It's not a dream; it's NBC saying, "You've got more Office paperwork due!"
