  • The Office

According to TV Line, NBC has already started the search to find a new boss to lead the ensemble comedy. TVLine first reported news of a possible revival. However, Steve Carell's Michael Scott, a.k.a the heart and soul of The Office, will not be involved in the new series.

The report says that the revival would be a mix of old and new cast members set in the familiar Dunder-Mifflin offices in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

The Office ran for nine seasons on NBC as part of the network's Thursday comedy brand.

Most of "The Office's" other main stars, including Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson and Mindy Kaling, are also busy with other projects. Novak among others. It received a total of 42 Emmy nominations during its run, winning five.

North Korea open for U.S. dialogue, says Russia's Lavrov
Ri held a conversation with Feltman, who also paid a courtesy visit to the Supreme People's Assembly (North Korea's Parliament). Feltman's visit to the North was made known in Pyongyang's state media on Friday, South Korean television network SBS reported.


"I don't think it'll ever happen", she said.

Network president Bob Greenblatt has previously said he'd be keen to bring it back if there was interest. But I'm not sure it's realistic. The report clearly calls for a continuation of the story of Scranton's Dunder Mifflin offices.

"And I'm not sure the show works if we're all in different locations". And Michael's living with Holly now. "We often talk about The Office", the exec told our sister site Deadline.

But NBC has reason to be in the revival business after successfully relaunching Will & Grace this fall. Carell exited after season seven, with The Office continuing on for two additional cycles before the star returned for the series finale in 2013.
