American mockumentary sitcom ‘The Office,‘ is followed by millions of people all around the world, is set to leave streaming service, Netflix on December 31 before going exclusively to NBC’s platform Peacock. So, starting January 1, 2021, the series will join the new streaming platform’s library.

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:

“We can’t wait to welcome the gang from Dunder Mifflin to NBCUniversal’s new streaming service.”

Then UTV president Pearlena Igbokwe said in another statement that they are thrilled the series has found a new home “where generation after generation will continue to discover and rediscover” the Golden Globe Awarded sitcom.

When we look back to the announcement in 2019 by Netflix regarding the series, it is clearly seen that this leaving is a planned move.

“We’re sad that NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform — but members can binge watch the show to their hearts’ content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021.”

In addition to the series, which has a main cast consisting of notable actors including Ed Helms, Mindy Kaling, Craig Robinson, James Spader, Ellie Kemper, and Catherine Tate, ‘Parks and Recreation‘ and ‘30 Rock,’ will be housed by Peacock according to The Hollywood Reporters.
