Greg Daniels Is Really Working On a Spin-Off of ‘The Office’

An expanded Office universe is one step closer to becoming reality.

Greg Daniels, showrunner for the American version of The Office, said he is starting work on a “follow-up series” this week. Daniels will be meeting with writers on Tuesday to work on the initial show development.

The series will not a reboot of the original — thankfully — but would likely be set in a new office with new characters within the same world as the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. It would be another mockumentary-style series, a genre Daniels has a proven track-record in with both The Office and Parks and Rec.

Conversations about continuing The Office have floated around since before the show even aired its final episode over back in 2013. While Daniels has always maintained he has no desire in rebooting the series, it seems like he’s now open to the idea of evolving the show in a new way.

In the new series, individual cast members could presumably make special appearances, but don’t get your hopes up for a reunion. Writer and producer B.J. Novak, who portrayed Ryan Howard on the show, squashed the reboot rumors when he said, “Definitely you wouldn’t get everyone back together, that ship has sailed.”
