'The Office' Revival Eyed at NBC

Headlined by Steve Carell as Regional Manager Michael Scott for many seasons, it eventually turned the focus on other characters.

TV Line reports a potential return to Dunder Mifflin is being eyed for the next TV season, with a new season of The Office reportedly to be set in the Scranton, PA branch central to the NBC series.

The network declined to comment on reports that a "The Office" revival is in the works.

Rumors of an Office revival briefly surfaced over the summer following the Will & Grace pickup when NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said there was an open invitation for a return to Scranton, although he noted creator Greg Daniels hadn't yet indicated he would be on board. "I've talked to Greg [Daniels] four times over the past few years". It became the platform that boosted the careers of Carell, John Krasinski, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper, Mindy Kaling, and Rainn Wilson. It's always, "Maybe someday, but not now". "If he wants to do it, I would do it".

"The Office, ' based on a BBC series of the same name, ran for nine seasons between 2005 and 2013".

In November, Jenna Fischer spoke with Variety's podcast Remote Controlled about the likelihood the show would come back to television screens. 'I would do it if there was some circumstance where everybody got back together, and could be brought back together in some unbelievable way, I would say yes. "It would nearly have to be a scenario where it's 'the lost tapes of The Office,' where you somehow go back in time and there's all of these lost stories where we weirdly look 5 years older".

The network, which is enjoying the successful relaunch of Will & Grace, is looking to revive their much beloved series, albeit with some major changes.
