NBC's beloved series "The Office" is reportedly returning to your living room TV's for the 2018-2019 season.
According to TVLine the revival will continue to take place at Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton, PA., branch. TVline stated that the cast will be a mix of old and new cast members however there is one large change. Michael Scott, played by Steve Carrell, was the boss/ branch manager for seven of the nine seasons that aired, and TVLine said he will not be a part of the remake, which has left many skeptical on how much they will like the revival.
Roughly a month before NBC’s successful relaunch of Will & Grace, network president Bob Greenblatt revealed to reporters that his revival wish list included The Office (as well as 30 Rock). “We often talk about The Office,” the exec told our sister site Deadline. “I’ve talked to Greg [Daniels] four times over the past few years. It’s always, ‘Maybe someday, but not now’. There is certainly an open invitation, but we don’t have anything happening right now. If he wants to do it, I would do it.”
Reports say NBC is going to bring back 'The Office' for the 2018 season featuring a mix of new and old charters. No Steve Carell. https://t.co/gDN7JrwxPU

If the original series taught us anything, it’s that you should not make The Office without Steve Carrell.

I love ‘The Office’ more than almost anyone and think this is a terrible idea.
The finale stuck the landing perfectly.https://t.co/emuhyEGxcR

I love The Office. I liked the ending and have made peace that it came to an end. I don’t want it to come back and not be as good as the original run.

Don't revive The Office. Make the next The Office.
