NBC still wants to reboot The Office US & we are here for it!

The world said goodbye to the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company team in 2013.

Although the series ended in a fitting way after nine great seasons, it seems the TV network NBC are wanting to revive the series.

There have been many rumours about a potential reunion or reboot, but nothing has come from them yet. 

NBC content chief Susan Rovner told Deadline they are keen to get something off the ground 'whenever [The Office creator] Greg Daniels wants to do one'.

She explained that the network is essentially just waiting for the green light and they will commission a bunch of episodes immediately.

Daniels explained earlier this year to Collider that a reboot was 'not impossible for sure', however they are probably looking for a good reason to resurrect the series.

At the end of the ninth season, everything was perfectly wrapped up, with many of the characters leaving Scranton or the company.

So it leads to the question whether a totally new cast would be needed, or if the old cast would have to be persuaded back into their original roles.

Rainn Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute, has already stated that he is eager to return and 'would love to do something' if a remake is to go ahead.

However, Steve Carell, who played Michael Scott, has ruled himself out. Despite the fact that he left the programme in season seven, he wants the public to know that he's moved on.

Other characters from the show, including Mindy Kaling and John Krasinski, have gone on to achieve great success in their careers, and it would be interesting to see if they would return.

Looks like we will have to just wait and see...

But for now who’s keen on a binge watching marathon?
