Why ‘The Office’ Will Probably Not Return with a Reboot

Branson Willis, Staff Writer

‘The Office’ is a very popular TV show that started in 2005 and ended in 2013. The show is a hilarious sitcom about a paper company branch called ‘Dunder Mifflin Scranton’ but some of the jokes used may not be acceptable today. However almost any person who is a fan of The Office wants a reboot. However, is it a good idea?

In ‘The Office’ they make jokes that many people today will get offended by. Jokes about race and sexuality are probably the most common types of jokes made in The Office. Just in the episode, Diversity Day there are multiple jokes about race. These jokes are meant to be completely harmless but today people have put so many restrictions on what is okay and what is not okay that the jokes would cause a problem.

The beloved character from The Office, Michael Scott, might not even make a return to the reboot if it happens. Steve Carell, the man who plays Michael Scott, said in an interview with TIME, “There was something so special about it, and I guess it’s an odd way to put it, but I love it too much to ever want to do it again. It’s too special to me in my heart in that period of time.”

Steve Carell has openly voiced his opinion on a ‘The Office’ reboot. He thinks that it won’t work today, and it was right for its time. But he also said that the humor is completely wrong minded. In an interview with TIME he said, “I’ve never thought of it as a good idea.” Referring to the sitcom having a reboot.

So, if the man who played the main character in the sitcom doesn’t think a reboot is a good idea, then maybe it’s not? But who knows, maybe the reboot will work out great and every fan of “The Office” will be happy.
