The news follows an announcement from Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming platform in the US, that the show would be streaming exclusively there from 2021 for US users, thus leaving Netflix.

The return to Peacock is also set to see the arrival of new “Superfan Episodes”, including never-before-scene footage and deleted scenes in extended cuts of original episodes, which will start in Season 3 with more to follow in March.

“Having The Office back in the NBC family opens up access to a lot of extra content that we originally shot,” Greg Daniels, creator of the U.S. version of the show, said in a statement obtained by Variety.
