The Office creator Greg Daniels addressed the rumors of a reboot of the beloved NBC show, clarifying that nothing in that universe is in the works as of now.

The creator told TheWrap that he’s more interested in creating a spinoff rather than a reboot of The Office, similar to what The Mandalorian did for the Star Wars universe. “I don’t like to think of anything as a reboot, you know what I mean?” Daniels said. “Because I feel like we ended that story beautifully. The characters had closure. I would never want to redo that same show with a different cast, because I think we got the luckiest cast, the best cast ever, in TV, to do that show. So the notion of a reboot is not of interest.”

“The notion of maybe something like the way ‘The Mandalorian’ is a new show in the Star Wars universe, you know what I mean? Something like the notion of this documentary crew doing a documentary about a different subject,” he continued. “That, I think, could be intriguing and creative. But I don’t even know what you would call that. I don’t know if that’s like a sister show or something. I don’t know what the term is. But it doesn’t feel like ‘reboot’ would be the appropriate term for that.”
