Greg Daniels, the creative force behind the American version of 'The Office,' is set to return to the popular mockumentary sitcom universe, as reported by Deadline. Daniels, who adapted 'The Office' from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's British series of the same name, is embarking on a new venture within the same fictional universe.

The upcoming project, which marks a significant development in the long-standing rumors about a

new 'The Office' series, is expected to start taking shape next week. Daniels is scheduled to meet with a group of trusted scriptwriters to brainstorm ideas for a potential sequel.

However, Deadline indicates that this new series will not be a reboot of the original. Instead, it's poised to be a spinoff, set in the same universe but featuring a different office and an entirely new cast of characters. This direction suggests a fresh narrative while maintaining the essence of 'The Office' that fans have come to love.

The American version of 'The Office' had a successful run from 2005 to 2013, spanning 188 episodes and gaining a dedicated fan base. Its unique blend of humor and relatable office dynamics earned it a special place in the hearts of viewers and critics alike.

With Greg Daniels at the helm, there's a palpable excitement about what this new series could bring. While details are still sparse, the promise of returning to the beloved 'The Office' universe, albeit in a new setting, is a tantalizing prospect for fans eagerly awaiting more of Daniels' comedic genius.
