Will The Office Return to Netflix USA?
It does not seem like the series is slated to release on Netlfix USA anytime soon. The nine seasons of the show were removed from the streaming service back on January 1st, 2021. The beloved mockumentary is available on some of the other platforms like Peacock or Amazon Prime Video. But it is unfortunately not available for Netflix users living in the USA.
We also do not have any info regarding its status and whether it will arrive on the service again. So you might want to consider alternative options like Hulu+ or YouTube TV as The Office is streaming on those services. You can also consider buying DVDs if you are still on that and want to have nostalgic screening sessions. With that said, Netflix might license the show in the future. So let’s wait and forget the episodes a little bit more so that we can binge-watch the nine seasons for the third time again.
Why is The Office such a great TV series?
Fans of the series definitely know that the series is unique in many ways. There are various reasons why we are stuck up with the show and can’t stop watching it. The Office depicts some of the most strange but also relatable characters. We all know how immensely weird Michael is.
Yet again we can understand him somehow and relate to his reaction to his environment. It also applies to Jim‘s indifference to his job, Dwight‘s overly focused approach to his duties, or Pam‘s unending search for that ‘click’ which she thinks is the key to change in her life. The show manages to gather all of this and pack it to a small and humble workplace. That’s why it is so amazing on a whole new level.
The Office streaming is Netflix USA is not a dream though as we might see the show on the service in the future. For that , Netflix has to acquire the rights again.
