Rumors of a potential revival of The Office have been swirling around, but that’s not the only idea that has been floating around out there. Bryan Cranston, who directed an episode in Season 9 titled “Work Bus,” recently expressed his desire to see an Office movie. The movie could serve as a continuation of the series, delving into the lives of the beloved characters after the show’s conclusion.

During an interview on the Office Ladies podcast, Cranston shared his thoughts on the hypothetical movie. He stated, “Let’s say that there’s not a reboot series, but what if there was a movie? 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?”

While discussing the potential movie, podcast hosts Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey expressed their interest in the project, but with one condition: showrunner Greg Daniels should lead the movie. Both Fischer and Kinsey emphasized the importance of Daniels’ involvement, as he played a pivotal role in the success of the original series.

Cranston himself also expressed his desire to be a part of the Office movie but in a relatively minor role. He suggested a cameo as “some guy,” perhaps a crossing guard. This seemingly small role would be Cranston’s way of contributing to the project while also giving a nod to the show that has become a cultural phenomenon.

In January, it was reported that Greg Daniels was assembling a writers’ room to explore potential spin-off shows within The Office universe. These spin-offs would not be a reboot but rather a fresh take on the workplace comedy, introducing new characters and settings. However, the universes of these new shows would still exist within the same realm as the original series, allowing for the possibility of appearances or references to the beloved characters from The Office.

The Office originally premiered in 2005 and ran for nine seasons until its conclusion in 2013. While the show experienced a significant change when Steve Carell, who portrayed the iconic character Michael Scott, left in Season 7, it continued to thrive with its ensemble cast, including actors like John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, and Mindy Kaling.

Despite the passage of time, The Office remains highly popular and lucrative in syndication. Earlier this year, NBCUniversal secured the rights to the show by paying Netflix a staggering $500 million, bringing all episodes exclusively to their streaming platform, Peacock. The Office has also been recreated in various countries around the world, including Australia, with new casts taking on the beloved characters.

While the idea of an Office movie has sparked excitement among fans and industry insiders, it’s important to recognize that no concrete plans have been announced yet. The desire to explore the lives of the characters after the series finale presents an intriguing opportunity for storytelling. Whether it’s a movie or a spin-off series, the potential to delve deeper into the lives of these beloved characters holds immense promise for fans of The Office.

In the end, whether an Office movie becomes a reality or not, the impact and enduring popularity of the original series is undeniable. The world of Dunder Mifflin continues to captivate audiences, and the prospect of uncovering the mysteries of what became of the characters after the series finale is a tantalizing possibility. Only time will tell if Bryan Cranston’s wish for an Office movie can come true, but fans can certainly hope for more laughs, unforgettable moments, and, perhaps, even a surprise appearance from their favorite Scranton employees.
