It's finally happening–The Office is leaving Netflix.
Beginning on January 1, 2021, the popular workplace sitcom will no longer be available to stream on Netflix. While this is certainly a major bummer for Netflix subscribers, the silver lining is there's still a month to binge all nine seasons before it's gone for good.
Should fans of The Office want to continue to have access to the NBC comedy, they'll have to sign up for the network's new steaming platform Peacock. Back in 2019, the Wall Street Journal first reported that NBC was in talks to buy back the steaming rights to The Office when its contract with Netflix expired. NBC will reportedly pay $100 million per year to keep The Office streaming on Peacock.
It's no surprise that both Netflix and NBC fought to keep the streaming rights for The Office. According to a Nielsen report from 2019, Netflix users spend more time streaming The Office than any other show on Netflix.
Will you be signing up for a Peacock subscription so you can keep watching The Office?
