That’s what she said.” That’s Michael Scott’s famous line. A line that will be remembered forever. The show is really popular, in fact, it was the most popular & most-watched show on Netflix in the year 2018. Unfortunately, in June of 2019, Netflix announced that it was going to be removed at the end of 2020, or in January of 2021

The Office is a popular “mockumentary”(a fictional documentary), sitcom about the everyday lives of people that work at the Scranton, Pennsylvania branch of a fake paper company called Dunder Mifflin. The show started on March 24, 2005, and had a total of 9 seasons & 201 episodes! The show ended 8 years later on May 16, 2013. 

In June, Netflix sadly announced it’s removal from its network. When asked if The Office should be taken off Netflix, 7th grader, Katelyn Granados responded: “No it shouldn’t because people enjoy watching it and laughing.” It’s now known by all watchers of this show that it’s being removed, but this brings us to the question, How long do we have to watch it before it’s gone?

On June 25, 2019, Netflix announced on Twitter that NBC was going to be taking back The Office for their own streaming network, they said: “We’re sad that NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform — but members can binge watch the show to their heart’s content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021”. NBC TV is taking back the show because it was the most-watched show on Netflix so they are hoping that it will add appeal & boost the viewers, on their streaming network.

7th grader Maryam Malik was asked if people would protest, and she said “Probably because it’s a very popular show, it’s many people’s childhood, I feel like if you go up to a random person and ask them if they know or have seen The Office, most likely they’ll say yes. I saw a post on Instagram that says if the post got a high amount of likes, then Netflix will keep it on, this was a while ago though.” Hopefully, for the sake of The Office watchers, it will get enough likes, but unfortunately, all they can do now is just like the tweet & hope the show stays.
