Good news, Dunder Mifflin-ites! Peacock is returning to the same universe of The Office with a brand-new series hailing from Greg Daniels, creator of the American version of the beloved workplace comedy. Developed alongside Michael Koman, the currently-untitled project will feature Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars) and Sabrina Impacciatore (The White Lotus) in the lead roles.

How to Watch

Watch every episode of The Office on Peacock.

Production is expected to kick off in July, with the show adopting the same faux mockumentary approach as its predecessor. This time around however, the film crew will follow the day-to-day operations of "a dying historic Midwestern newspaper and the publisher trying to revive it with volunteer reporters," reads the official synopsis.

“It’s been more than ten years since the final episode of The Office aired on NBC, and the acclaimed comedy series continues to gain popularity and build new generations of fans on Peacock,” Lisa Katz, President, NBCUniversal Entertainment, said in a statement. "In partnership with Universal Television and led by the creative team of Greg Daniels and Michael Koman, this new series set in the universe of Dunder Mifflin introduces a new cast of characters in a fresh setting ripe for comedic storytelling: a daily newspaper." 

Both Daniels and Koman are executive producers along with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (co-creators of the original version from the United Kingdom), Howard Klein, Ben Silverman, and Banijay Americas .
