NBC releases never-before-seen ‘The Office’ clip that parodies ‘The Matrix’ as the series finds its new home on Peacock.
Even though it was bound to happen and even outright said back in 2019, ‘The Office’ fans are mourning the loss of the show from Netflix. Of course, you still stream it, but it’s on NBC’s recently launched Peacock streaming service.
To commemorate the change, however, NBC released a never-before-seen cold open from the series. The clip features not only the expertly played Dwight Schrute, but also Jim, Pam, and Dunder Mifflin security guard, Hank.

The end goal of the clip was to convince Dwight that he was living in ‘The Matrix’ by training a black cat to walk by his office door twice, as well as enlisting the help of Hank and his twin brother, which the farmer-manager doesn’t know about.
The end result is an almost five-minute clip of build up, proving how far Jim will go to mess with Dwight. The release of this clip is certainly a welcome one as fans could get a small bit more of the series even though it said goodbye back in 2013.
