Time to clock back in, Dunder Mifflin employees.

According to TV Line, NBC is considering revisiting “The Office” in the 2018-19 season. The series would be a continuation of the previous one, which went off the air in 2013.

Sources claim “The Office” revival would feature a mix of old and new cast members, though it’s not clear which original stars will be returning to the show.

TV Line reported that Steve Carell, who played Dunder Mifflin, Scranton, Pa., office’s regional manager Michael Scott for seven of nine seasons, will not appear.

NBC executives are reportedly hard at work looking for his replacement.

The network declined to comment on reports that a “The Office” revival is in the works.

Bob Greenblatt, the network president, told reporters a month before the premiere of the “Will & Grace” reboot that “The Office” was on his wish list for future reboots, along with “30 Rock.”

At the time, Greenblatt told Deadline he’d spoken with show creator Greg Daniels about the possibility of bringing the show back several times.

“We often talk about ‘The Office,’” Greenblatt told the publication.

“I’ve talked to Greg four times over the past few years. It’s always, ‘Maybe someday, but not now.’ There is certainly an open invitation, but we don’t have anything happening right now. If he wants to do it, I would do it.”

Little else is known about the alleged “The Office” continuation at this time.
