Revivals of 'The Office,' '30 Rock,' 'The West Wing,' and 'ER' Could Actually Happen

August 4, 2017

First up: Will & Grace was revived. Then it was renewed for a second season. So what's next? Could NBC be trying to revive The Office, 30 Rock, The West Wing, and ER? It sounds like it's at least a possibility. 

NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt spoke about the possibility of NBC reviving other signature programs at a TV critics press event earlier this week.



Greenblatt said there has been an "open invitation" for The Office to return to the airwaves. Greenblatt and Greg Daniels have apparently discussed the possibility. Daniels adapted the BBC show for NBC back in 2005. The two have apparently left the possibility of "The Office" revival as a "maybe some day" kind of situation.

As for 30 Rock, The West Wing, and ER, Greenblatt has mentioned the possibility of a revival to each of the show's original programmers. Tina Fey (30 Rock), Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing), and John Wells (ER) all seem open to the possibility down the road, according to this week's revelations.

NBC's Chairman made it clear that the network would have to be "selective" about any revivals, and acknowledged that reboots are not easy. 

However, it's nice for us to know that it's possible the network could bring back some of our favorite programs.
