I guess it was bound to happen. “The Office” is by far the most-watched show on Netflix, and I was planning on having it in the background when I finally end up in an old folk’s home.

I think I’d be a little less frumpy as a senior citizen, but whatever.

In a power move that is sure to send all Netflix subscribers into emergency binge mode, NBC Universal’s deal with the streaming giant will expire in 2020, and NBC’s soon-to-be-announced streaming service will fire up January 2021, with exclusive rights to stream the show in the United States. The announcement was made by Netflix on twitter:

Netflix apparently bid $90 million to re-up the rights to have “The Office” on its platform, but was outbid by NBC  with a bid of $100 million. NBC Universal’s Chairman of Digital Enterprises Bonnie Hammer had this to say in a press release:

”‘The Office’ has become a staple of pop-culture and is a rare gem whose relevance continues to grow at a time when fans have more entertainment choices than ever before. We can’t wait to welcome the gang from Dunder Mifflin to NBCUniversal’s new streaming service.”

So grab your popcorn! You still have a year and 5 months to binge “The Office” all you want. And the theme song is still the best ever. Fight me.
