The same iconic documentary crew, famous for bringing us the antics of Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch, is now on a quest for their next big story. They stumble upon a historic Midwestern newspaper gasping for its last breath and the determined publisher rallying volunteer reporters to bring it back to life.

Leading the fresh new cast are Irish talent Domhnall Gleeson, 40 (About Time), and Italian star Sabrina Impacciatore, 56 (The White Lotus).

While we still don’t know whether they’ll be stepping into boss shoes akin to Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) or embodying a new era of Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer), anticipation is sky-high.

Lisa Katz, president of NBCUniversal Entertainment, couldn’t hide her excitement, remarking on the enduring legacy of ‘The Office,’ which continues to win hearts and attract new fans over a decade since its finale on NBC, especially on Peacock.
