I found a similar post (viewtopic.php?t=29183) in the denied section, but it didn't contain an answer/reasoning behind the decision in not adding the two extra episodes.
It's about The Office (US) - Season 3 (https://thetvdb.com/series/the-office-u ... official/3).
It now lists as having 23 episodes, but on the official DVD it had 25 episodes and (for example) on Prime Video (https://www.primevideo.com/detail/0IQYB ... FLTEVIACSX) it also has 25 episodes.
Current episode 10 and episode 23 should both be split up in having a Part 1 and a Part 2.
A messy alternative would be to extend the runtime of both episodes to 40min, but of course the above change is preferred.
If this won't be changed, it would be nice to hear the reasoning behind it.
Thanks in advance!

It didn't air like that and was listed as a single episode from NBC.

If you have a source for the dvd order please post it and we will adjust it. Streaming order is not a source for dvd order though.

Ah, I’m sorry... If it was aired as one episode on NBC than it should indeed stay like this.
Than I would like to see the runtimes extended to 40min 😁.
Thank you for the response!
