Despite the show ending its nine season run in 2013, there has been a recent surge of The Office affiliate projects that have satiated the needs of longtime Dunder Mifflin fans and clients. 2020 has certainly been no exception to this, with the recent children’s book, and the upcoming publication of Andy Greene’s The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom of the 2000s: An Oral History.

The book, released on March 24, will feature the voices of actors, creators, and writers, going behind-the-scenes of the hit sitcom. It depicts the origins of the show at the BBC, the drama of Steve Carell’s departure, including insights into how the office of The Office operated.
Hilarious, heartwarming, and revelatory, The Office gives fans and pop culture buffs a front-row seat to the phenomenal sequence of events that launched The Office into wild popularity, changing the face of television and how we all see our office lives for decades to come.
The book is formatted like an interview, which gives it an exclusive, straight-from-the-horse’s-mouth feel, and you’ll feel like an NBC insider by the time you reach the end. Through the eyes of the cast and crew, you can see what went on in the writing process, plus some interesting information about the show’s final two seasons. It gives a fuller picture of the culture of the show and reminds the reader how and why it has such a rich longevity of cultural value.
You can get your hands on the book at the end of the month, and until then enjoy your re-watch of the hit series on Netflix.
