Because you’ve already binged the show enough times.

Fans of “The Office” itching for an update from the cast of the classic NBC sitcom could be in for a real treat.

The show’s creator Greg Daniels recently suggested that a reunion is not out of the question  when he was asked about the possibility of the Dunder-Mifflin crew getting back together.

"I think it's probably more likely now that the show is on Peacock, but no plans right now," Daniels told E! News on Tuesday. "But people are more open to it now it seems like."

The statement came after the show was added to NBC streaming platform Peacock last week.

While he said it’s hard to say what a new iteration could look like, Daniels referenced another beloved NBC sitcom as a possible model.

“I think the issue is what is left to say about the characters. There's been talk of maybe a Friends-style reunion kind of thing. I don't know, it's still pretty vague,” Daniels shared.

He added: “The weird thing about that is when we ended it, we jumped forward a year and a lot of them aren't working there anymore. Jim and Pam live in Texas now and so does Darryl. But it would be fun to go find some lost episodes and shoot them as if they were back in 2010 or something.”

The update from Daniels seems consistent with previous suggestions from a few months ago.

Last August, Matt Strauss, chairman of Peacock and NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises, said that the inclusion of “The Office” on the streaming platform could lead to new content in the form of new “elements that were not part of the original broadcast,:” reports Bustle.

Toi commemorate the move to Peacock after its departure from Netflix, the sitcom debuted a never-before-seen cold open on the platform that's inspired by “The Matrix.”
