The Office Engorges Its Comedy Enterprise

| Filed under: TV NewsSteve Carell


While we loved The Office with captain Steve Carell at the boss wheel, and although we think Ed Helms is awkwardly HIGHlarious…just let this show die already!!

Along with a Rainn Wilson centered spin-off, it seems Office execs are looking to stretch the British-born franchise until breaking point by creating a whole new revenue center show: The Office 2.0.

This reinvented Office would include new characters mixed with some old.

Would this show be in addition to The Office, or a replacement??

Come on dudes, it’s been eight seasons! Wouldn’t you rather go out on your own terms rather than getting cancelled?

Do U want more Office action??

    Great publicity shot! From Seurat, not Sondheim. Read a book, people!
    But Americans have a history of running great series way too long and into the ground [think MASH, Cheers, Enterprise], and Brits end a series on a high, but way too early [think the Brit Office, Fawlty Towers, Episodes, The Thick of It].

    The Office is my all time favorite show on television. I was trying to find some sort of evidence online of what you are talking about, and I found this article. Perez, I defend you all too oftend, but the truth is you really need to know your shit before you start running your mouth for all the world to read. come on now.

    o crap. i just found this.by Margaret Eby April 13, 2012

    What do you do when negotiations with the cast of a seasoned sitcom stall? Well, if you’re the producers of The Office, you apparently think about replacing the actors wholesale. That’s right: According to Deadline, series executive producer Greg Daniels is debating making the next season of The Office a reboot, bringing in a slew of different characters to replace stalwarts John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Mindy Kaling, and B.J. Novak—not to mention the potentially farm-bound Rainn Wilson—whose contracts expire at the end of this spring. It won’t be a complete retooling, since Daniels is thinking about mixing in some of the old characters in with the new. But still: The Office without Jim or Pam? After Steve Carell left last season, the show recovered reasonably well, but it’s not clear what Dunder-Mifflin would look like without the romantic couple at the center of all the action. NBC’s supposedly waiting to make the big decision until after reviewing the pilots for the season, but we hope this doesn’t mean the end of Jim. Who’s going to encase the staplers in Jell-O now?

    boooo. they need to just leave the show alone. i like how it is

    Re: litnight – I totally agree re American imitators of original British programs. Somehow the American version has never measured up to the British version.
    I never liked the show.

    If they do a Office 2.0 im guessing it will turn out a lot like Scrubs 2.0 and bomb

    Why wouldn't something newish with some of the old cast work? You guys mention British television but they do it all the time! Doctor Who and Being Human and Skins..just to name a few. They keep some of the old and add some new and it works just fine!
