It was announced this week that the hit sitcom The Office US may be revived and return to television. Due to the unexpected success of Will and Grace revival this is apparently next on the cards – but is this a good idea?
The rumours state that Steve Carrell won’t be a part of it and the lead actors John Krasinki, Jenna Fischer, Mindy Kaling and others may not return either. The original creator of the Amercian Office Greg Daniels also did an interview last year stating that he did not think it was needed – so why is it returning and also how can it?
Whilst the concept of the show could be developed with a different Office space is it really needed as the last show was rounded off so well and even those who took over the space of Steve when he left did so well do why do we need a new season to take over what was laid to rest so well?
I am a huge Office US fan and watch it over and over again so much and know a lot of the lines inside out but I don’t think I want another series – it was finished so well and it felt whole and complete which does not happen in many sitcoms when it ends. All the main characters did so well to bring amazing characters to the show that to actually bring it back with a new cast would be such an offensive and bad decision to make. So as much as I love the Office, I really hope it doesn’t return and rests in the amazing peace it was given.
