Longtime fans of The Office are still holding out hope that a revival on Peacock will come to fruition, and here are the latest updates on the potential reboot. It has been around eight years since viewers were forced to say goodbye to the employees of Dunder Mifflin, but the interest in the series is as high as ever. With the continued trend of reboots and revivals with past popular sitcoms, it’s up to Peacock to bring back The Office.

Based on the UK series of the same name, Greg Daniels created the American workplace comedy, which debuted on NBC in 2005. With the mockumentary format and wide variety of characters led by inept manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell), The Office found its footing in season 2. It then became a bonafide hit for the network throughout its nine-season run before coming to an end in 2013. Though Carell left The Office in season 7, the presence of John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, and a handful of notable supporting cast members and guest stars was still a selling point for NBC.

Despite ending in 2013, The Office found a resurgence of popularity after the series began streaming on Netflix. As one of Netflix’s most-watched titles, the streamer took a hit when the rights reverted to NBCUniversal’s new service, Peacock. With the sitcom still fresh on viewers’ minds, the notion of a reboot remains a topic of discussion. Here’s everything we know about The Office revival.

Will The Office Revival Happen?

Rumors regarding a reboot of The Office truly ramped up after NBCUniversal’s Bonnie Hammer announced her hopes for bringing the beloved sitcom on Peacock. Her statement came in September 2019, nearly a year ahead of Peacock’s nationwide release in the summer of 2020. While the topic of a revival has been on diehard fans’ minds since the show’s conclusion in 2013, the probability of it happening seemed low. However, with The Office’s streaming rights officially moved to Peacock in 2021, hope has been renewed.  Daniels revealed his thoughts on an Office revival in January, stating his belief that it’s more likely than ever, but no plans are currently in the works.
