Everything to Know About NBC's The Office Superfan Extended Cut Episodes

You can never spend too much time with the Dunder Mifflin staff!

By NBC Insider Staff

For many, many viewers out there, NBC's The Office represents a proverbial comfort dish of comedy delights deftly served up by the lovable employees of Dunder Mifflin.

How to Watch

Watch every episode of The Office on Peacock.

While the show's final episode aired a decade ago, the small screen hijinks of the Scranton-based paper company remain as popular as ever, with audience members regularly coming back for regular binge watches.

It's extremely rare to find a series with this much staying power and thanks to Peacock — now the exclusive home of all nine seasons of The Office — committed acolytes of Michael Scott (Steve Carell), Pamela Morgan (Jenna Fischer), Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), Jim Halpert (John Krasinski), and the rest of the mockumentary team can enjoy a heaping helping of never-before-seen footage by way of the extended "Superfan" episodes.

Where to Watch The Office Superfan Episodes?

Seasons 1-7 of Superfan episodes of The Office can be found exclusively on Peacock.

"There’s something very appropriate and great about it being back on Peacock since it’s an NBC show, and they really understand it very well and they’re committed to making the most comprehensive fan experience," creator Greg Daniels told Nexttv in 2021. "And so they’re very good about trying to provide extra content, and make it fun, and kind of make it the very best experience for a super fan you could possibly want."

Two subscription plans currently exist for the NBCUniversal streaming service: Premium ($4.99 a month with ads) and Premium Plus ($9.99 a month without ads). New members can save 17 percent by singing up for an annual account: Premium is $49.99 a year, while Premium Plus will set you back $99.99.

What's New in The Office Superfan Episodes?

The Superfan episodes of The Office contain extra footage not seen in their original television airings on NBC. As a result, the bonus content ups the runtime of each to around 30 minutes or more.

"I’ve gone back with the original editors, and we had access to all of the footage, because it’s NBC, and all of the marketing and all of the interviews with the cast," Daniels added in his conversation with Nexttv. "It’s just been really fun this summer, while we were all locked up, that we could go back and look at dailies and go, ‘Oh, yeah, I remember that,’ ‘Oh my God, I haven’t seen that since we were on the set,’ or stuff like that."

He later continued: "We didn’t use every piece of scrap. And some of these long ones don’t play the same, because when we’re putting in a lot more material [into an episode] they’re not as tight. I don’t want to compare ourselves to the Beatles, which I’m about to do, because it gets a little hairy, but I have friends who are so into the Beatles and they have these bootleg tapes and it’ll be them just sort of tuning the guitars and chatting with the engineers and you’re just like, ‘Wow.’ And if you’re really into it,  even that is fun. So I think some of this stuff, it’s just fun to see, like that moment when they return from Beach Games when they’re singing The Flintstones. We’ve seen that, but it was an hour drive and we had them sing a lot of other songs, so it's just fun to see them doing different ones."

From alternate scenes, extended scenes, deleted scenes and full-on storylines axed for time in the original run — they're all back in the Superfan episode.

How many Superfan seasons are there of The Office?

As of this writing, there are seven seasons of Superfan episodes available on Peacock. The platform's own blog has a nifty rundown of all the episodes and their plot synopses right here. We don't have release dates for Seasons 8 and 9 just yet.
