A new "Office" wouldn't actually be the first attempt at expanding the show's domain: NBC developed a spin-off series, "The Farm", featuring Dwight Schrute (Wilson) returning to his family's farm. It won't be a remake or a reboot and will instead continue the lives of the hapless workforce at the offices of Dunder Mifflin's branch in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Once again, it would take place at Dunder Mifflin's office in Scranton, PA. Steve Carell, the glue that held the show together who starred in seven of the program's nine seasons, will reportedly not be involved in the new instalment.
NBC has not yet commented on this new report.
"We often talk about The Office", Greenblatt said. "I've talked to Greg [Daniels] four times over the past few years".
Maybe, just maybe, that someday is now.
NBC is reportedly considering reviving "The Office" in the 2018 - 2019 season.
The decision to move forward with a revival is not terribly surprising given NBC's recent history of reviving Will & Grace and Rosanne. "And if he were to be in charge of it, I can't imagine that I wouldn't want to help out in some way, or write, and I feel like probably the rest of the cast feels the same".
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. As "The Office" continued for several years, many of those characters were elevated from the background and wound up with their own storylines and histories.
