‘The Office’ Reboot Is Officially Happening — Here’s What to Know

The Office creator Greg Daniels’ newest series has officially been greenlit.

Peacock has picked up the still-unnamed series set in the broader Dunder Mifflin Cinematic Universe. Peacock has also revealed some key details, namely what the “documentary crew” will be following.

“It’s been more than ten years since the final episode of ‘The Office’ aired on NBC, and the acclaimed comedy series continues to gain popularity and build new generations of fans on Peacock,” said Lisa Katz, president of scripted content for NBCU Entertainment. “In partnership with Universal Television and led by the creative team of Greg Daniels and Michael Koman, this new series set in the universe of Dunder Mifflin introduces a new cast of characters in a fresh setting ripe for comedic storytelling: a daily newspaper.”

According to the official logline, “the documentary crew that immortalized Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch is in search of a new subject when they discover a dying historic Midwestern newspaper and the publisher trying to revive it with volunteer reporters.”

It’s an interesting office setting for 2024, but seeing how Daniels was able to turn a dying paper company into a comedy hit, we’re certain he can do the same with the newspaper industry.
It was previously reported that Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars) and Sabrina Impacciatore (Season 2 of The White Lotus) have already signed on as cast members, but character details are still under wraps. However, Daniels has previously said that characters from The Office could make some guest appearances as well, and we can’t pretend like we aren’t dying to know what the Dunder Mifflin crew is up to after more than a decade off-air.

Production for the new series is scheduled to begin in July, meaning the show could premiere in late 2024 or early 2025.
