Amid Reports Of An Office Spinoff, Bryan Cranston Pitches A Movie

There are rumors and reports regarding a revival of The Office, but that’s not the only idea floating around out there. Bryan Cranston, who directed the Season 9 episode “Work Bus,” said on the Office Ladies podcast recently that he wants to see an Office movie.

A potential film could pick up after the events of The Office and reveal what happened to the show’s characters after the series ended, he said.

“Let’s say that there’s not a reboot series, but what if there was a movie?” Cranston said (via The Hollywood Reporter). “Something to where we can see where these people are. These people in the entire cast that we’re curious about. We wondered at the end, where did they go? What did become of them?”

Podcast hosts Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey said they would be up for this, but only if showrunner Greg Daniels was leading the movie. Cranston, meanwhile, said he would like to have a cameo in a potential Office movie as “some guy” like a crossing guard.

In January, it was reported that Daniels was assembling a writers’ room to explore opportunities for spin-off shows. This reported new version of The Office will not be a reboot, but instead could be a show that takes place in a different workplace with new characters. However, the report said this show would exist within the same universe, which would leave open the possibility for characters and events from the NBC series to potentially appear or be referenced in the follow-up.

The Office debuted in 2005 and ran for nine seasons, ending in 2013. Steve Carell, who played Michael Scott, left the show in Season 7. The series also starred John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, B.J. Novak, Jenna Fischer, Leslie David Baker, Mindy Kaling, Kate Flannery, Phyllis Smith, Brian Baumgartner, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson, Melora Hardin, and Oscar Nunez.

Carell has said a character like Scott would not fly in today’s climate with his off-color jokes.

The Office continues to be extremely popular and lucrative in syndication. NBCUniversal paid Netflix $500 million to bring all the episodes to its own streaming service, Peacock.

In other places around the world, like Australia, The Office has already been remade with new casts.
