It seems like every other week, another classic TV show from the past is being rebooted. This time around, it’s the beloved sitcom “The Office” that’s set for a comeback – but with a new cast. Fans of the show are equal parts excited and anxious about the prospect of a new group of actors inhabiting the roles made famous by Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, and the rest of the original cast. So, who will be the new faces of Scranton’s Dunder Mifflin paper company?

First, let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room: no one can replace Carell’s Michael Scott. The bumbling, inappropriate, but ultimately endearing regional manager was the heart of “The Office” – so it’s hard to imagine anyone else stepping into those shoes. That being said, rumors have been circulating that actor Ed Helms (who played Andy Bernard in the later seasons of the show) might take on the role. Helms has the comedic chops to pull off the role of boss, but fans will undoubtedly compare him to Carell’s iconic portrayal.

Other characters have yet to be cast, but fans have plenty of suggestions. Reddit users have proposed actors like Adam Scott, Paul Rudd, or Zachary Levi for the role of Jim Halpert, while Mindy Kaling herself has said she thinks Priyanka Chopra would be a great choice for the role of Kelly Kapoor. As for Pam Beesly, some fans have suggested Alison Brie or Aubrey Plaza. Of course, these are all just fan suggestions – the producers of the show may have very different ideas in mind.

It’s worth noting that the new “Office” is being produced by NBC’s streaming platform, Peacock. This means that it won’t be on network television, but rather a subscription-based service. It’s unclear if any of the original cast members will make appearances, but showrunner Greg Daniels has said that the reboot “will embrace the same sensibility and tone as the original show”. So, fans can rest assured that the new version won’t be a complete departure from the beloved original.


All in all, it’s impossible to predict how the new “Office” will be received. Reboots are always a risky move, and fans of the original show are notoriously protective of the characters and storylines. But with the right casting and writing, the new “Office” could be a hit – and perhaps even introduce a new generation of viewers to the quirky, lovable employees of Dunder Mifflin.
