  • NBC is reportedly considering reviving “The Office” in the 2018- 2019 season

Insiders confirm a report, first revealed by TV Line, that NBC is developing an updated version of the hit comedy, which originally ran for nine seasons (from 2005 to 2013). "We often talk about The Office", the exec told our sister site Deadline. A search is underway to find a new star to take over as the show's Michael Scott-like regional manager of paper supply company Dunder Mifflin. It's always, "Maybe someday, but not now". Greenblatt said there was an "open invitation" at the time, and that should Daniels want to move forward with the project the network would be on board.

"I don't think it'll ever happen", she said.

NBC is reportedly considering reviving "The Office" in the 2018 - 2019 season. The show, a USA take on the original United Kingdom series, followed the lives of workers at Dunder Mifflin in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Dwight was the acting manager at the end of the show's run.

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

But NBC has reason to be in the revival business after successfully relaunching Will & Grace this fall. Additionally, John Krasinski is now working with Amazon Studios for their new Jack Ryan series, so he too seems an unlikely returning cast member. The show - which made stars out of Carell, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper and Mindy Kaling, among others - was an awards-season staple, taking home multiple Emmys, Golden Globes and other top prizes.
