“The Office,” the successful comedy series, is coming back after more than 10 years. It has just been announced that production of the spinoff will begin in July, and although there is little information, some details about the plot and cast have already been revealed.

Only two cast members have been announced so far, but they are familiar faces to many viewers. The first is Domhnall Gleeson, known for playing Bill Weasley in the “Harry Potter” franchise and General Hux in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The second confirmed name is Sabrina Impacciatore, the hotel manager in Season 2 of “The White Lotus,” a role that earned her an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama.

But for those hoping for a return to the same universe as “The Office” in Scranton, Pennsylvania, or even to meet former employees of Dunder Mifflin, they can prepare for a very different experience. In a press release issued by Peacock, the series description reads:

“The documentary team that immortalized the Dunder Mifflin branch in Scranton is on the lookout for a new subject when they discover a historic and dying Midwestern newspaper and the editor trying to revive it with volunteer reporters.”

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, creators of the original British “The Office” and executive producers of the American adaptation, which lasted nine seasons from 2005 to 2013, are expected to return as executive producers for the new series.

There is still no official air date for “The Office” spin-off, but streaming service Peacock confirmed in its press release that the series will go into production in July.
