The US Office Could Be Getting A Reboot - And Creator 'Has Idea For It'
We've had more than our fair share of reboots lately and it seems as though this trend is going nowhere after former NBC exec has said The US Office could be next.
Bob Greenblatt, former chairman of NBC Entertainment, has revealed in a recent interview that the show's creator Greg Daniels has been considering a reboot of the hit show and even has an idea.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Greenblatt said: "But, look, I was talking to Greg Daniels four years ago about rebooting The Office, way before this.
"He wants to do it and actually has an idea for it." Well, that's exciting isn't it?
Of course, this isn't the first time we've heard about a reboot since the show finished back in 2013; earlier this year NBCUniversal entertainment chief Bonnie Hammer said: "It is my hope and goal that we do a The Office reboot."
He made the comment after NBCUniversal acquired the rights to the show from Netflix - where it is consistently one of the most popular shows.

Hammer added: "The Office comes back to us in January 2021. It is my hope that we can figure what that great reboot would be. We are having conversations."
But before we all get too excited, star Steve Carrell - better known as Michael Scott to fans - has counted himself out.
In an interview with Time last year, Carrell said: "I've never thought of it as a good idea. I think it existed in that time and with those people and it felt right.
"There was something so special about it, and I guess it's an odd way to put it, but I love it too much to ever want to do it again. It's too special to me in my heart in that period of time."
He doubled down on his comments during an interview with Esquire, saying: "I just don't think that's a good idea, it might be impossible to do that show today and have people accept it the way it was accepted ten years ago."
However, John Krasinski has said he'd be down for it, so that's something.
Speaking to Indiewire he said: "I love that idea, coming back, finding out where everybody is. I would totally be down for that." Perhaps with the show's very own Jim Halpert on board, other cast members could be tempted to join in.
Let's keep our fingers crossed, eh?
