It's been almost 10 years, but David Brent is back! Ricky Gervais reprised his Office role for a 10-minute video, The Office Revisted.
While many are still mourning Steve Carell's decision not to return to The Office as Michael Scott, there is a silver lining: We still have Ricky Gervais. The Office creator has decided to bring back David Brent for a "mini episode" called The Office Revisited, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Ricky Gervais may have enjoyed being the "most feared man in Hollywood" when he notoriously offended many as a the host of the Golden Globes, but he insists that his new sitcom Derek, set in a nursing home, is "sweeter" than his usual fare.

It's certainly not an obvious topic for humor, but Gervais hopes that viewers will give the show a chance.
"I think there's risk of people not watching it because of assumptions that it was cruel," he said at Netflix's winter TV previews on Wednesday. "There's risk that they don't get it. Or that they get it and don't like it. ... I haven't felt this excited and proud of a project since The Office. That's the truth of it."
