BBC Office to return?

This seems unlikely with the success of HBO's Extras that Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant would bring back the BBC Office but you never know:

The Daily Star claims that both Gervais, who plays David Brent, and co-writer Stephen Merchant have witnessed the success of the US version, and are longing to write some new material.

A source close to Gervais said: "Stephen and Ricky have been getting sent the scripts of the US version of the show – which is now in its third series – and falling about laughing. They're encouraged to edit the scripts but can’t find fault with them.

id love to see them contribute more to the US version. How about Gervais enters the show as some sort of higher up manager from the intenation division that comes down to harrass Michael every now and then?

i think it would be funny to have him come to America as David Brent and see what it would be like to have David and Michael in scenes together. Like some kind of weird cross over episode...
