Los Angeles [USA], Dec 19 (ANI): Everybody Stay Calm! 'The Office' might be returning to TV screens really soon.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, after the success of the return of 'Will & Grace', NBC is looking to revive another of its beloved comedies - 'The Office'.

The network is looking to bring back the former Steve Carell starrer for another season. Carell, however, will not return.

A search is underway to find a new star to take over as the show's Michael Scott-like regional manager of paper supply company Dunder Mifflin.

NBC is hoping to revive the beloved mockumentary series for the 2018-19 season.

Based on Ricky Gervais' hit British comedy of the same name, 'The Office' ran on NBC from 2005 to 2013, winning the Outstanding Emmy Comedy in 2006.

The ensemble included Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, Brian Baumgartner, Kate Flannery, Leslie David Baker, Angela Kinsey, Oscar Nunez, Creed Bratton, Ed Helms, Ellie Kemper, Craig Robinson, Paul Lieberstein, and Phylllis Smith.

Back in January, Carell briefly set Twitter on fire for joking about an Office revival. (ANI)
