'The Office' ran for 9 seasons between 2005 and 2013, and it's finally getting a spinoff series on Peacock, the original American version of the show was set in Scranton, PA, but this series will have a whole new location, could it be Minnesota?

According to the news that broke yesterday, the new series will be not be a reboot or spinoff, but rather a new mockumentary style show set in the same universe, but about a new cast of characters working in "a dying historic Midwestern newspaper".

I immediately thought that Minnesota, specifically Duluth, would be a perfect setting for this new show, Scranton and Duluth are very similar towns, very blue collar, medium size regional hubs, with strong industrial roots.

Hollywood loves to exploit the "Minnesota accent" whenever they get a chance, so it makes sense, comically, to have it set in northern Minnesota. Also, Duluth is big enough and small enough to, A. have a newspaper, and B. have a dying newspaper.

I would also not be shocked if they used Wisconsin as a setting for the new series, a town like Green Bay could also be a good fit for the new series.
