As the wheel of revivals turns, The Office looks like it might be next. Rather than returning for a full series, however, star John Krasinski said he’d rather borrow a page from the show’s O.G. incarnation to make it happen.
It’s a tale as old as time: In a near future, not too far from our own, the few remaining survivors of some mysterious Earth-shattering incident have carved out a desperate, tenuous living while fighting to survive. There is something undeniably — and satisfyingly — old-fashioned about A Quiet Place; a thriller that examines our place in a society that no longer exists and what it means to be human in the face of monstrous terror. It’s also a knuckle-biting masterclass in escalating tension that establishes John Krasinski as a serious filmmaker capable of crafting one hell of an emotional thrill ride.
It’s been two years since the role was first confirmed, but John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan finally has a 2018 assignment. The new Amazon take on the iconic Tom Clancy character will debut Labor Day weekend, but a new Super Bowl trailer is already here.
NBC is rarely one to learn the right lessons from success, so how best to follow a thriving Will & Grace revival? Why, undoing any goodwill from The Office series finale, of course, and plotting an official revival for the 2018-19 season!
