As known, ‘The Office,’ based on the BBC series of the same name, originally aired on NBC from March 24, 2005, to May 16, 2013, for nine seasons in total. After gaining popularity among streaming platforms, Netflix purchased the exclusive streaming rights of the series by paying $100 million per year. However, when the source company decided to launch its own service, Netflix had to limit the license to December 31.

Bonnie Hammer, chairman of NBCUniversal confirmed the news in a press statement according to the news published by The Hollywood Reporter:
