If you spend most of your time on Netflix watching The Office on the loop, we’ve got some pretty sad news for you. NBC will be pulling the hit sitcom from the popular website in 2021, because they want it to be the staple of their new streaming service.
Netflix officials expressed their sadness over the decision, but reminded fans of the show they can still binge watch it until January 2021. This media giant has always been pretty secretive about its streaming numbers, but it’s been reported that The Office was their most-watched show in 2018.
Netflix’s loss is NBC’s gain, since this sitcom happens to be one of their biggest hits of the 21st century, and they can’t wait to bring it back home.
“The Office has become a staple of pop-culture and is a rare gem whose relevance continues to grow at a time when fans have more entertainment choices than ever before. We can’t wait to welcome the gang from Dunder Mifflin to NBCUniversal’s new streaming service,” said Bonnie Hammer, chairman of NBCUniversal Direct-to-Consumer and Digital Enterprises.
