If you don’t have Netflix and watch to binge on the American version of “The Office,” Comedy Central has you covered.

The cable network has secured the rights to all nine seasons of the NBC mockumentary sitcom and will begin an old-fashioned televised marathon on Jan. 15, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on an earlier British sitcom by the same name, “The Office” followed the exploits of the office workers at a paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

“We’re very excited to add the incredible Office to the Comedy Central lineup and can’t wait for the Dunder Mifflin team to get here,” said Comedy Central general manager Tanya Giles, THR reported. “The office environment is one so many of our fans can directly relate to and this acquisition will give our audience lots to laugh about.”

“Office” fans with a Netflix subscription need not worry for now, at least. The streaming giant will still retain rights to the catalog as well, THR said.
