New comedy series ‘The Office’ will center on reporters at a ‘dead’ newspaper

More than a decade after viewers said goodbye to the beloved NBC series “The Office,” a new comedy set in the same universe as everyone’s favorite paper company Dunder Mifflin is coming to the Peacock.

“Ex Machina” star Domhnall Gleeson and Sabrina Impacciatore from Season 2 of HBO’s “The White Lotus” will lead the ensemble cast of the yet-to-be-titled mockumentary series, according to a news release shared today.

“A documentary crew chronicling the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin is looking for a new subject when they discover a dying historic Midwestern newspaper and the publisher tries to revive it with volunteer reporters,” the logline for the new comedy series reads.

Greg Daniels, who adapted “The Office” for US audiences from the original UK series of the same name, will serve as co-host alongside “Nathan For You” co-creator Michael Koman. Daniels and Koman will also produce the series with original “Office” creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

The American take on “The Office” first debuted in the US in 2005 and aired its final episode in 2013. It stars Steve Carell, John Krasinksi, Jenna Fischer, Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson and BJ Novak, among many others. Many cast members became household names following the widespread and early success of the series, which won five Emmys during its run.

Like its Gervais-starring predecessor, the series follows a mockumentary-style format with cast members breaking the fourth wall as the crew follows the staff around the office, documenting their monotonous daily tasks, office romances and occasionally strange behavior.

It is not yet known if any of the previous actors will make a cameo in the Peacock series, which will begin production in July.
