Dunder Mifflin Scranton, PA could start selling paper once again in 2018.
NBC is reportedly in the talks for a revival of one of its most successful TV series. The news of a special 2018-2019 season for “The Office” has yet to be confirmed, but according to the reports, the project would include a mix of the original cast as well as new characters.
Sadly, Steve Carell, who played Michael Scott for seven of the show’s nine seasons, will not be part in any revival, meaning a search for a new regional manager is currently underway. Fans of the series will remember that the show ended with quirky Dwight Schrute running Scranton, but it’s still unclear if Rainn Willson will be among those returning.
Based on Ricky Gervai’s hit British comedy of the same name, “The Office” aired on NBC from 2005 to 2013, winning an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy in 2006. Many the cast members also rose to fame due to the series massive success, including John Krasinksi, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, among others.
Earlier this year, Carell briefly set social media on fire after posting a tweet unleashing rumors about a possible “Office” revival. However, at the time, his post seemed less like an official statement and more like a comedian pulling a fast one on fans.
But it seems like that wasn’t a classic Michael Scott prank after all!
