The WGA announced a ‘tentative agreement’ with the AMPTP, paving the way for a remake of The Office.

Hollywood has come to a standstill after months of strike action, with stars officially joining the walkout in July.

Productions were halted, leaving some of our favorite TV shows and movies hanging in the balance as to when they will resume filming.

The WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) have subsequently announced a ‘tentative agreement,’ which could mean the strikes will end soon. And for all The Office lovers, this suggests that a reboot of The Office is possible.

“We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA, which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language,” the WGA said in a statement posted on Sunday, September 24.

“Everything we have gained in this contract, especially since May 2nd, is due to the willingness of this membership to exercise its power, to demonstrate its solidarity, to walk side by side, to endure the pain and uncertainty of the past 146 days.”

“It is the leverage generated by your strike, combined with the extraordinary support of our union brothers and sisters, that has finally brought the companies back to the table to make a deal.”

“We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional – with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership.”

Matthew Belloni and Jonathan Handel of Puck News expect that the industry is going to see a “firehose of announcements of projects and casting that have been held back for fear of bad optics or violating guild rules.”

They go on to say, “For example, Greg Daniels is planning a reboot of The Office.” Dana Walden of Disney will now be able to announce the return of her Netflix BFF Ryan Murphy. There will be a flood of high-profile film scripts. “The industry will return to normal.”

But will an Office reboot actually happen?

Daniels, who adapted the UK Office for the US version, had stated that he didn’t have time to commit to a reboot, but in March 2022, he appeared to change his tune.

While still cautious about how it would take ‘a long time’ to return to The Office in order not to ‘disappoint’ viewers, Daniels stated to CBR that he’d approach it in the same manner as ‘The Mandalorian is like an extension of Star Wars.

“But I don’t know if that would be something people would want or not, it’s hard to tell,” he stated.

However, with the remake being approved by NBC earlier this year and Daniels’ schedule appearing to be clearer, there is still hope for The Office fans.
