The love for The Office doesn’t ever seem to run out, as the world remains obsessed with the mockumentary that has us crying laughing. The NBC comedy may have ended several years ago, but it hasn’t stopped millions binge-watching the show. The Office has been especially popular this year for two reasons. John Krasinski reminded us of how much we loved the gang at Dunder Mifflin after featuring the cast on his YouTube Channel Some Good News. 2020 has already meant many of us have been stuck at home for weeks on end, introducing a whole new audience to The Office. And now Reddit has announced that The Office was a top trend on the social media platform!

The home of memes has unveiled what users were loving this year, highlighting what the most popular TV shows have been in each genre. While The Office had some tough competition, it seems Reddit users can’t stop talking about the title. Could this be because The Office is leaving Netflix?

There were tons of other comedies that The Office had to fight off to become the number 1 TV show on the platform. Rick and Morty, Community, BoJack Horseman and The Simpsons hit the list as users discussed each series LOTS of times, but The Office reigned supreme. And it’s not just comedy series that The Office fought off Grey’s Anatomy, Game of Thrones, and The 100 were also just a handful of popular series that flooded Reddit’s network this year. Tiger King also had the fastest growing TV community in 2020. Wow, who remembers those days – can you believe that was this year?!

While The Office was the top TV show on Reddit, it sadly didn’t make the movie category. And fans of the mockumentary will understand this. Because Threat Level Midnight should have made the shortlist, the best action film known to man.
