After a run of many years, the popular workplace comedy The Office has left Netflix and is now streaming exclusively (in the US, at least) on NBC’s own service, Peacock. With the move to Peacock, NBC promised some never-before-seen footage and other special content, and the network has indeed delivered.
NBC has published a previously unreleased cold open involving Dwight and The Matrix. Jim and Pam attempt to convince Dwight that he is indeed living in the matrix, with Hank the security guard playing the role of Morpheus. The sequence is best seen without knowing much more, so go ahead and watch it below. The video is dedicated to Hank actor Hugh Dane, who passed away in 2018.
NBC also released a 15-minute video that showcases some additional never-before-seen extra scenes, bloopers, and other wackiness. It’s not hard to see why some of this was cut, but it’s an enjoyable watch for fans of the show looking to get a peek behind the curtain.
