Here it is, the darkest of days: The Office will, unfortunately, be leaving Netflix. At the very start of 2021, your favorite series will no longer be available on the streaming platform as all nine (!!!) seasons of the series will be gone in the platform’s libraries starting on the 31st of December.
Fans of the sitcom will surely be unhappy with this, but the pandemic has pushed every streaming platform to their bests––and this one seems to be one of the most inevitable. With its rights clearly leaning towards NBC’s, Netflix’s only choice is to license any show or movie that isn’t NBC’s originals––with that, The Office must bid farewell to the streaming giant.
Rewatching the office for probably the last time since it’s leaving Netflix and I STILL skip Scott’s Tots.

However, this isn’t really goodbye to the show––just goodbye on the platform, obviously. If you’re willing to transfer streaming platforms just to watch the sitcom, then you better head on over to NBC’s newest streaming platform in Peacock. At the end of the day, there isn’t quite a place like home for the Dunder Mifflin crew, is there? From the start of 2021 to 2026, The Office will be staying on NBC’s platform.
Alongside the sitcom are NBC’s other hit shows like Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock. If you’re worried you’ll be paying for another subscription, well, the most basic Peacock account is absolutely free––don’t worry about it.
