‘The Office’ is coming back with a twist.

Get Ready Australia, ‘The Office’ Is Coming to Your Screens with a Major Twist

Hold on to your seats, fans of ‘The Office’! The popular sitcom franchise is making its way to a new continent, and this time, with a major twist. Australians will soon find themselves with their own version of the show, but unlike the UK and US versions, this one will feature a female boss.

“I’m very excited about Australia remaking my little show from the turn of the century. Office politics have changed a bit in 20 years, so can’t wait to see how they navigate a modern-day David Brent.” – Ricky Gervais

According to Variety, the Aussie version of the show will star actress Felicity Ward as an office boss named Hannah Howard. Howard will run an office that is virtual for a packaging company called Flinley Craddick. The character, who will presumably be incompetent, will manage a remote team of workers, thanks to the COVID pandemic.

The first version of ‘The Office’ was launched in 2001 in the UK by actor and comedian Ricky Gervais. Four years later, the American version of the show debuted on NBC and starred Steve Carell as the likable human resources nightmare boss Michael Scott. The show was such a hit with fans that it ran until 2013.

American Audiences Fell in Love with the Characters

American audiences fell in love with the characters of the show, including Scott, Dwight Schrute, and Creed Bratton, among numerous others. The inter-office romance between Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) and Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) also reeled in viewers and kept them watching for years.

It is not clear how Australia’s virtual version of the show will accomplish any such chemistry between coworkers or if producers intend to. However, Gervais is an executive producer on the new show and told Variety he is excited to see its premiere.
