Everybody stay calm! The Office US is reportedly set for reboot after the writers' strikes in Hollywood.
On Sunday 24th September, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) announced it had reached a tentative deal with the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers after more than four months of striking. Once the deal is voted on by the Guild's members and board, the strike can officially end.
Amongst the excitement is the news that the iconic series The Office could be making a return to TV screens sooner than anyone thought.
In an article for Puck News, Matthew Belloni and Jonathan Handel claimed that Greg Daniels, The Office US's creator, was looking to reboot the series.
"Greg Daniels is set to do a reboot of The Office, for instance," they wrote. "Disney's Dana Walden will finally be able to announce the return of her BFF Ryan Murphy from Netflix. A ton of high-profile movie scripts will come in. The industry will chug back to normal."

Greg Daniels has previously hinted at a reboot of the series. In 2022, he told Collider: "I can't tell whether fans would want more of it, and when I say more of it, I don’t think it would be the same characters.
"I think it would just be sort of like an extension of the universe... I don't know if that would be something people would want or not, it's hard to tell."
