The Office

NBC/Justin Lubin

Twice the Office. Twice the fun. Twice the Dwight. And twice the (swoon) Jim and Pam.

Can you handle that much goodness?!

I've just heard from multiple insiders that it's looking very likely that NBC will double the amount of The Office we'll get next season. I'm told it's looking like each episode will expand to be an hourlong; however, if that plan falls through for some reason, I'm hearing that NBC wants to pick up something like 30-something episodes of the show in its current half-hour format.

Clearly, the Peacock execs are going bonkers for Michael Scott and his Dunder-Mifflin minions, as they should. But you gotta wonder if the cast and crew are up for such a demanding (albeit lucrative) challenge?

Also, assuming an expanded Office would remain on Thursday night, this move could leave Scrubs out in the cold. Still, ABC insiders tell me there is a slight chance the Alphabet net would pick up the Sacred Heart Gang if NBC were to cut them loose. It's not a sure thing, but it could be a possibility.

All will be revealed this Monday in NYC, when NBC reveals its fall schedule. (ABC's day is Tuesday, CBS is Wednesday, and Fox and the CW are on Thursday.) You know mama will be there to bring you all the scoop!

What do you think of this Office-al (but not yet official!) plan? Comment below...
