In a press release, NBC Universal announced that the series will be put onto their upcoming streaming service starting in 2021.
Netflix responded to the news in a recent tweet.
We're sad that NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform — but members can binge watch the show to their hearts' content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021
