‘The Office’ Considered Turning An Unused Season 1 Script Into A Reunion Show
Despite how busy the cast may be and the fact that it’s only been seven years since the show went off the air, showrunner Greg Daniels recently told IGN that he and Steve Carell have joked about turning an unused Season 1 script into a reunion show
“It’s so personally satisfying for me to work with Steve again, and I have talked with Steve about the fact that in a year or so we’re gonna start on Peacock as a rerun and I’m sure that they would love something, some sort of a… something,” Daniels said.
“I’m a little reluctant to open up the characters’ endings because we wrote specifically to an ending, but as we hang around we sometimes think about [it]. And there is a script that was written in Season 1; there was an extra script written that was never shot, called ‘Pet Day,’ so I don’t know, sometimes we joke around about gathering to do Pet Day.”

The NFL Schedule Could Be Delayed And The Super Bowl Could Be Pushed Back
If health experts aren’t saying it’s safe, the NFL won’t play. According to an article in Sports Business Daily, a few of the changes to the NFL schedule (should there be a season at all) are pretty damn shocking. Among the things being discussed are things like when the season starts, whether or not a full 16-game slate will be played as normal, or, even weirder, if the Super Bowl might have to be pushed back.
-The NFL could move the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay from Feb. 7 to another Sunday in February. The story said the league wants to keep the Super Bowl in February, meaning Feb. 28 would be possible.
-The NFL could eliminate the bye week between the conference championships and Super Bowl. The Pro Bowl is usually played in that bye week, and if the bye week is eliminated, the Pro Bowl would be, too.
-The season could be delayed until Thursday, Oct. 15.
-The NFL could shift the schedule for two early weeks to the end of the season. A third week would have teams against opponents with the same bye week, so that week could be erased and all regular-season bye weeks would be eliminated.
