It’s been over a decade since The Office ended its run, and rumors about its potential spin-off have been circling for years. The offshoot series is finally taking shape, and Domhnall Gleeson and Sabrina Impacciatore are reportedly eyeing lead roles in this project.

After years of speculations about a potential The Office reboot, things finally started looking promising earlier this year. Greg Daniels, the creator of the original series, opened a development room with trusted writers back in January to explore new series ideas.

He found a perfect partner in crime in the Nathan For You co-creator Michael Koman, who’s joining him as co-writer of the new spin-off. Not much is known about this project, but it’s believed it would focus on a new cast of characters working at a new office, that exits in the same universe as the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company from Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Domhnall Gleeson, who previously co-starred alongside The Office leading man Steve Carell in The Patient, has been tapped to play one of the lead roles. He most recently starred in the Channel 4 mini-series Alice & Jack and HBO’s historical drama White House Plumbers.

Sabrina Impacciatore will also star in the spin-off series alongside Gleeson. She’s best known as the star of the second season of The White Lotus, which earned her an Emmy nomination for best supporting actress in a drama series.
