It looks like life at Dunder Mifflin will be returning to prime time. TVLine reports that NBC is planning to revamp The Office for the 2018-19 season. The first big caveat: Steve Carrell would not be back, and the search is currently underway for an actor to play the new general manager. The report says some of the original characters would be back, though no names are mentioned. The Hollywood Reporter confirms the scoop, noting that the success of the rebooted Will & Grace has energized long-standing hopes for an Office revival. (More The Office stories.)
