  • 'The Office' Revival at NBC Featuring Old, New Cast — 2018-19 Season | TVLine

The show, a USA take on the original United Kingdom series, followed the lives of workers at Dunder Mifflin in Scranton, Pennsylvania. TV Line was first to report the news.

The report says that the revival would be a mix of old and new cast members set in the familiar Dunder-Mifflin offices in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

NBC is looking to revive The Office for the 2018-2019 television season, with the network already said to be looking for a new Michael Scott to lead the possible revival.

The "Office" revival would once again take place at the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin, and include some of the supporting cast from the original, coupled with new stars.

Steve Carell, Mindy Kaling, and B.J. Novak left before the series wrapped.


Fans have been chatting about an Office revival since August, when Deadline reported that NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt told reporters he had discussed the idea with the creator of the USA series, Greg Daniels: "We often talk about The Office, I've talked to Greg four times over the past few years". It's always, 'Maybe someday, but not now, '" Greenblatt said of Office discusssions back in August, adding: "We don't have anything happening right now.

"I've talked to (showrunner) Greg (Daniels) four times over the past few years".

This undated image released by NBC shows Steve Carell as Michael Scott in a scene from "The Office". "If he wants to do it, I would do it".

The decision to move forward with a revival is not terribly surprising given NBC's recent history of reviving Will & Grace and Rosanne.
