HOUSTON – Will the hit NBC show “The Office” return to TV?

A report by TVLine that cites “sources,” says the beloved workplace comedy may return for the 2018-2019 season.

No official word has been released -- NBC declined to comment on or confirm any details of the story.

The unconfirmed report says the revival would once again be set at Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton, Pennsylvania, branch, and feature a mix of new and old cast members. 

Steve Carell, who starred as the branch’s regional manager, Michael Scott, for seven of the comedy’s nine seasons, will not be involved in the new series, according to the report. A search for a new boss is said to be underway.

NBC successfully re-launched Will & Grace this year with talk of potential additional revival series, which included "The Office."
