TV revivals are definitely this year’s thing. After we just found out Will & Grace was renewed for a season two months after the season one even aired, more exciting news is coming from NBC.
As Bob Greenblatt, NBC entertainment chairman, revealed for Deadline, the network is negotiating with the creators of The West Wing, The Office, 30 Rock, and ER about bringing their TV series back to the air. They all officially ended four or more years ago.
For now, it is most likely that we’ll see new episodes of The Office. Greenblatt pointed out that he has been discussing the show with creator Greg Daniels often: “I’ve talked to Greg four times over the past few years. It’s always, ‘Maybe some day but not now.'”
30 Rock creator Tina Fey reportedly responded with “I don’t know, maybe,” Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) reportedly said, “You know I love that show and some day I’d love to revisit it, but it’s not going to happen right now.” As for the ER, John Wells said, “There is nothing concrete.”
