Sources have confirmed to TVLine that NBC has scheduled the revival of the hit workplace mockumentary comedy series for the 2018/19 season.

Well, if you long for the days when that crew ran the fictional Scranton paper company Dunder Mifflin, you just might be in luck.

Steve Carell, who starred in NBC's American version of the United Kingdom sitcom, is not set to be involved in the new show.

No word yet on whether the show's other stars - including John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Mindy Kaling, Ellie Kemper, Rainn Wilson, B.J. The series would be a continuation of the previous one, which went off the air in 2013. The idea of a Schrute Farms spinoff was discussed, but ultimately never transpired.

NBC had no official comment to TV Line regarding the reported revival consideration. TV Line was first to report the news. A new actor is being sought to for a regional manager character.

Bob Greenblatt, the network president, told reporters a month before the premiere of the "Will & Grace" reboot that "The Office" was on his wish list for future reboots, along with "30 Rock". As fans of the show are well aware, it ended with more of a whimper than a bang. There could still be the chance for employees like Phyllis and Meredith to return naturally. While Michael may not be returning, the outlet suggests old characters will return in some capacity alongside new characters. But, this is also still early, so they could find a way to bring back some of their biggest stars.
