The Office is a Hotstar special that is a remake of the series of the same name in the UK and the US. It was released earlier in the year to mostly negative reviews. The few which were not were also only a reactionary to the negativity overall.
However, the makers of The Office are undeterred and unfazed by what the critics have to say. They are ready with a new season of the show. It will stream online from September 15th in Hotstar.
Most of the cast of the first season will reprise their roles in the second one as well. Apart from them, Mallika Dua is a new addition. She seems to have liked the content very much and enjoyed playing the role.
Rohan Sippy who has directed a few episodes of the show previously is back for the second time as well. Debbie Rao though has been replaced with Bumpy. If there were any doubts, it is clear now that The Office is following the US remake path and not the UK original.
We have to see if Mukul Chadda and co continue to impress a newer lot the second time around or not. The Office is a BBC India production for Applause Entertainment.
