Get ready for the new daily show

Get ready, there’s a reboot of The Office (probably) coming

Well, now that the writers’ strikes in Hollywood are coming to an end [hopefully], we have lots of great new stuff to look forward to in the world of movies and TV, with everyone being treated properly and AI and improper usage of people’s images reduced to a bad dream.

And it seems that top of the list of exciting new things is… The Office.

Yes, it seems that Greg Daniels, who developed The Office in the US, is set to reboot the series.


And that’s all I know. Now, I know there are going to be cries of ‘but why?’ and I’m right there with you but we need to remember that the 2005-2013 Office itself as the majority of you know it, was a reboot of Ricky Gervais’ The Office in the Uk and, on top of that, there’s about 15 other versions of the show across the world in different countries, languages etc, so to be really precious over the series that starred Steve Carrell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Rainn Wilson is a bit pointless.

Plus the fact, there’s money to be made. And, no doubt even more important than the money, several of the original cast, including Krasinski, have said in the past that they would come back if the series ever reappeared.

That said, as of now, there’s no word on what it would be – Daniels has hinted in the past that he wanted to make a series that ran alongside the original, well, the US version, set in the same world but featuring a new cast and a new situation.

Look, I liked The Office well enough but there’s no question that once Carrell’s Micheal Scott departed the series, it totally fell apart – the last season is close to unwatchable, so having it return in one form or another doesn’t really fill me with excitement but as Wilson’s Dwight said in the show: “Identity theft is not a joke, Jim! Millions of families suffer every year.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
