Office fans have been waiting for this day for quite some time. Millions of us have been dreading the time where The Office finally leaves Netflix. But not to worry. The mockumentary is heading to another streaming service. Peacock will now exclusively stream the sitcom from January 1st, 2021, with tons of extras. Yes, that’s right. Peacock is offering fans the chance to pay for a package that offers a bunch of deleted scenes and extended cuts. Take my money!
Peacock is offering the first two seasons of The Office for free with ads, currently only available in the US. This means that Season 3-9 will be available to Peacock Premium subscribers for $4.99 a month with ads. Or Peacock Premium Plus for $9.99 a month ads. Peacock is deeming Season 3-9 as Superfan Episodes, where users who pay for a premium package will be offered a whole heap of extras!
Fans will love what Peacock are offering!
This news has been over a year in the making, as it was announced in 2019 that The Office would be leaving Netflix. This comes as a huge loss to Netflix, as the comedy is one of the top streamed content on the platform. Bringing The Office to Peacock has meant that fans are offered access to a ton of behind-the-scenes videos and deleted scenes. As Peacock is part of the NBC family, it means there is more on offer, with Greg Daniels suggesting that: “the experience on Peacock should feel like a celebration of ‘The Office’ for fans”.
The company announced the news with a fake press release from Dunder Mifflin. The announcement said:
“This memorandum is to inform everyone that we expect a significant spike in sales starting on January 1, 2021, when Peacock starts streaming the documentary footage that was shot at Dunder Mifflin Scranton between 2005 and 2013″.
Not only will 201 episodes be available to binge, but bonus content will also be included in the premium package. This includes bloopers, featurettes, interviews, and playlists featuring the best pranks and office romances. Fans will also be offered themed episodes, such as the best of Scranton’s holiday parties. Best of all, Peacock will be streaming what they are calling The Office Zen. A 24-7 channel of noises from the show!
While we were gutted that The Office is leaving Netflix, it now seems like amazing news. Fans have more content up for grabs!
