The Office to Leave Netflix for NBCU Streamer


NBCUniversal’s upcoming U.S. OTT platform will be the exclusive streaming home of all nine seasons of The Office for five years, beginning 2021.

The hit NBC sitcom is among the most popular titles on Netflix. In 2018, it was streamed for over 52 billion minutes. “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,” said Bonnie Hammer, chairman of NBCUniversal Direct-to-Consumer and Digital Enterprises. “We can’t wait to welcome the gang from Dunder Mifflin to NBCUniversal’s new streaming service.”

The new ad-supported streaming service is set to launch next year.

The Office is one of our most prized series, and we are thrilled it has found an exciting new home where generation after generation will continue to discover and rediscover Michael Scott’s most cringe-worthy moments, Jim and Pam’s will-they-or-won’t-they, and the incredible quirky ensemble that makes each episode a masterclass in comedy,” said Pearlena Igbokwe, president of Universal Television.
