The Office Spin-off in the Works From Original Creator
After over a decade since The Office concluded its nine-season run, series creator Greg Daniels is currently developing a spin-off which would take place within the Dunder Mifflin universe. In a previous interview, Daniels confirmed that he has no intentions of rebooting the original sitcom, revealing that the spin-off will definitely tell a new story.
“The notion of maybe something like the way The Mandalorian is a new show in the Star Wars universe, you know what I mean?” Daniels told The Wrap. “Something like the notion of this documentary crew doing a documentary about a different subject,” he continued. “That, I think, could be intriguing and creative. But I don’t even know what you would call that. I don’t know if that’s like a sister show or something. I don’t know what the term is. But it doesn’t feel like ‘reboot’ would be the appropriate term for that.”
NBC’s The Office was based on Ricky Gervais’ and Stephen Merchant’s original UK series of the same name. The Emmy-winning mockumentary sitcom starred Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, Craig Robinson, Ed Helms, B.J. Novak, Mindy Kaling, Angela Kinsey, Oscar Nuñez, Brian Baumgartner, Leslie David Baker, Phyllis Smith, Ellie Kemper, Amy Ryan and more.
