As Michael Scott once said, "Everybody stay calm!" The Office isn't leaving Netflix today, but it is in the near future.
According to Variety , the hit NBC workplace sitcom, and endless GIF goldmine is moving to a NBCUniversal beginning in 2021.
“‘The Office’ has become a staple of pop-culture and is a rare gem whose relevance continues to grow at a time when fans have more entertainment choices than ever before,” said Bonnie Hammer, chairman of NBCUniversal direct-to-consumer and digital enterprises. “We can’t wait to welcome the gang from Dunder Mifflin to NBCUniversal’s new streaming service.”
The Office aired on television from 2005-2013, catapulted many of its actors to stardom including Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Mindy Kaling and more.
The show has since become a Netflix staple for bingers to watch over and over again.
We're sad that NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform — but members can binge watch the show to their hearts' content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021
