Start binge watching while you can.

Netflix confirmed yesterday that The Office will be making its way off the streaming platform in a couple of years, in favor of NBC’s own streaming platform.

This is a HUGE loss for Netflix, as The Office has consistently ranked as the most popular streaming shows any service offers.  In 2018, viewers logged more than 52 billion minutes watching The Office, amounting to about 3% of all Netflix content in the United States last year.

Bonnie Hammer, chairman of NBCUniversal direct-to-consumer and digital enterprises, called The Office, a “staple of pop-culture and is a rare gem whose relevance continues to grow at a time when fans have more entertainment choices than ever before” in a press release announcing the move.

We have until January 2021 to watch as much Michael Scott as possible, so start binging now!
