The Office: we finally have some details on the new series!

When last September, we learned that the NBC channel was planning a return of The Office on the small screen, many of them raised their shields for fear that this decision would turn on the side of a reboot or a false sequel around our favorite Dunder Mifflin employees.

We were quickly reassured since it was not so much a question of touching this cult series as of offering it continuity through a show taking place in the same universe, always in the form of a “mockumentary” (mockumentary). And before crying capitalist scandal, we recall that, firstly, The Office is actually called The Office US since it is an American adaptation of a series designed by Ricky Gervais. And secondly, this is not the first time that the show has given birth to an offspring since we remember the equally excellent Parks and Recreation. So for our part, if we leave Michael Scott alone and we manage to find even half of the writing talent of the series in this new production, that is more than enough for us to be interested in it. .

Especially since today, we finally have new information regarding the content of the said series. Variety reveals that the story will follow the documentary team that captured the lives of employees at the Scranton branch of Dunder Muffin as they take on a new subject: a Midwest newspaper nearing closure that the publisher is trying to save with the help from volunteer journalists.

The Office: we finally have some details on the new series!

This new The Office (whose name should also obviously change) will therefore attack the information and media sector. A golden subject as the years have focused on digital technology and the weight of social networks in the field. The financial situation of the newspaper, the state of journalism in general and the voluntary status of the employees offer a rather substantial creative source which will fit well into the universe of The Office.

Two renowned actors to play this new The Office

This The Office should see the light of day on the Peacock channel and we already have a small idea of ​​the first names involved in the project. If their characters are not yet known, we know that Sabrina Impacciatore (The White Lotus) and Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars VII) will be the two main actors in the show.

Another reason to have confidence in the project, the presence of Greg Daniels in development, the same one who allowed the US version of The Office to see the light of day. He works alongside Michael Koman, author at Saturday Night Live. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the original creators of The Office British, will be part of the group of executive producers.

As this new series is still only in the writing phase, we should not expect to see it arrive before 2025 at the earliest.
