The Office is one of the most iconic sitcoms of the 21st century, and it was just a matter of time before its creators revisited this world. Greg Daniels co-created a new spin-off alongside Michael Koman, and this project just received a series order at Peacock.

According to the streamer’s official logline, the new series will see “the documentary crew that immortalized Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch is in search of a new subject when they discover a dying historic Midwestern newspaper and the publisher trying to revive it with volunteer reporters.”

This project came together after Greg Daniels, who developed the original series for NBC, gathered a group of trusted writers to work on new ideas this winter. He found a perfect partner in crime in Michael Koman, who co-created the new spin-off by his side.

Even before Peacock gave this project a green light, Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars franchise) and Sabrina Impacciatore (The White Lotus) were tapped to play two of the lead roles. The last of the show’s ensemble cast will most likely be announced in the coming weeks.

Peacock’s The Office spin-off still doesn’t have an official title, but the streamer is expected to share more news before it kicks off production this July.
