If you haven’t finished watching the entire nine seasons of The Office on Netflix yet, then you only have until the end of the year to binge it on the streaming service.
The show’s impending departure from Netflix first made headlines in June 2019, but the streamer made it official on Tuesday when it announced that its subscribers only have until December 31st to watch the classic sitcom.
The Office, however, won’t be leaving the streaming world completely, as it will just be moving to NBCUniversal’s newly launched OTT platform, Peacock.
Peacock offers an ad-supported free tier and an ad-supported premium tier for $4.99 per month, which serves no more than five minutes of advertising per hour. The premium tier can also be upgraded to an ad-free tier for an additional cost of $5 per month. Peacock has not yet revealed if The Office will be available on the free tier, or if it will be exclusive to the premium tier. It’s also not clear when exactly the sitcom will arrive on the streamer.
Of course, you also have the option of buying a physical copy of the series. All nine seasons of The Office are available on DVD and Blu-ray, which come complete with deleted scenes, extended producers cuts, commentaries, and blooper reels.
As revealed in June 2019, Peacock will retain exclusive domestic streaming rights to The Office for five years, paying $100 million per year to stream the series.
Sadly for Netflix subscribers, The Office isn’t the only beloved series leaving the streamer in December. Take a look at the list below to see what other series are exiting the platform next month:
- Hart of Dixie seasons 1-4 (December 14th)
