Everyone online has been freaking out and losing their minds, curious and furious about whether or not Netflix will be getting rid of The Office from their streaming platform.

Why are The Office fans the way that they are?
The classic NBC sitcom has been off the air for four years, but it’s still inspiring Scranton Strangler theories, lifting lifetime bans, and sharing good Valentine’s Day advice. The show also continues to be very popular — look what happened when Steve Carell joked that the show was returning, or alternately, when word began to spread that Netflix was getting rid of it.
Rumors abounded online this week that the American version of The Office was set to leave Netflix U.S. But for fans of the fictional paper company Dunder Mifflin, that’s luckily all they were — pesky internet falsehoods (The news wasn’t so good for fans of the British version of The Office, which left Netflix on March 31.) via Huffington post
No need to tweet your RIP The Office just yet. She's still here with us and we shall cherish her every day after work and a glass of wine. But just to remain sane, we've reached out to Netflix herself for comment.
