The Office Revival Reportedly in the Works

Sources claim "The Office" revival would feature a mix of old and new cast members, though it's not clear which original stars will be returning to the show. Steve Carell, who starred as Michael Scott, would not be part of the revival. Carell is the only veteran stated as definitively not appearing, but some of the other big names could be absent too, as the report also says the network is searching for a new Regional Manager. The show - which made stars out of Carell, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper and Mindy Kaling, among others - was an awards-season staple, taking home multiple Emmys, Golden Globes and other top prizes.

The network, which is enjoying the successful relaunch of Will & Grace, is looking to revive their much beloved series, albeit with some major changes. "We often talk about The Office", the exec told our sister site Deadline. I've talked to Greg [Daniels, producer and writer of The Office US] four times over the past few years. It's always, 'Maybe someday, but not now.' There is certainly an open invitation, but we don't have anything happening right 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".
