'The Office' Revival at NBC Featuring Old, New Cast - 2018-19 Season

Ever since this year's Will & Grace reboot went reasonably well, TV executives have been chomping at the bit to get in on that sweet, sweet nostalgia money and the American version of The Office is next in line.

Reports indicate that The Office could return as soon as 2018, and the show's fans are pretty excited about it. Bustle has reached out to NBC for comment.

TVLine reported the revival would feature a mix of new and old cast members.

TV Line reports a potential return to Dunder Mifflin is being eyed for the next TV season, with a new season of The Office reportedly to be set in the Scranton, PA branch central to the NBC series.

While the original USA edition turned the likes of Carell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, Ellie Kemper, Mindy Kailing, Ed Helms and Craig Robinson into household names, a source tells Variance it's unlikely any of them would appear in the new version, although Wilson could somehow be an exception. It followed the everyday lives of employees of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton Pennsylvania.

No word yet on whether the show's other stars - including John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Mindy Kaling, Ellie Kemper, Rainn Wilson, B.J.

At a Television Critics Association event, NBC's Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt indicated that he often thinks about reviving both the Emmy winning series as well as Tina Fey's "30 Rock".

"I've talked to (showrunner) Greg (Daniels) four times over the past few years".

"It's always, 'Maybe someday, but not now". "And if he were to be in charge of it, I can't imagine that I wouldn't want to help out in some way, or write, and I feel like probably the rest of the cast feels the same".

The decision to move forward with a revival is not terribly surprising given NBC's recent history of reviving Will & Grace and Rosanne.
