The Office may be one of the most beloved shows online, with millions of fans all around the globe still binging the show over and over again even though the show has been off the air for 6 years already. According to NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt, it was easily one of the most-streamed shows on Netflix - sadly, that may not be the case for much longer.
We're sad that NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform — but members can binge watch the show to their hearts' content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021— Netflix US (@netflix) June 25, 2019
Earlier this week, the streaming giant announced that NBC has plans to remove the show from Netflix's library, opting to feature it exclusively their own streaming service instead.
Even though the show will remain on Netflix for at least another year or so, fans of The Office across the internet started venting their frustrations over the decision almost instantly after the announcement was made. Here are some of the best reactions:

While news of The Office leaving Netflix is certainly devastating (first world problems, amirite?), fans have at least a slight glimmer of hope on the horizon - Netflix is developing a new, Office-like show with Steve Carell about the creation of the armed services' Space Force!
