The US Office spin-off has found its first two stars

The series will reportedly focus on a new office and new characters

Domhnall Gleeson has reportedly been cast in a spin-off of The US Office that is in the works.

Earlier in the year, JOE reported that the new series – said to be set in the same universe as the hit mockumentary – was in development.

Coming from The US Office’s original creator Greg Daniels, alongside Michael Koman (Nathan for You), several entertainment outlets have previously suggested that the show would involve a new office with new characters, but would still take place in the same world as the Steve Carrell-led sitcom.

Daniels has previously indicated that an Office spin-off could follow a documentary crew covering a different subject.

Now multiple reports have emerged that the much-anticipated project has found its first two stars in Gleeson, as well as Sabrina Impacciatore (The White Lotus).

It has not yet been revealed what roles they will play in the show, though it has been said that they will be part of an ensemble cast like the Steve Carrell-led sitcom.

Gleeson’s casting is particularly interesting as he recently starred opposite Carrell in the serial killer thriller series The Patient, for which the Irish actor received a Golden Globe nomination.

Impacciatore, meanwhile, received an Emmy nomination for her role in The White Lotus season two, where she played fan favourite character Valentina – who managed the version of the titular hotel located in Sicily, Italy

The US Office first aired in 2005 and was an adaptation of the BBC series of the same name, created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

After the first season debuted to an initially mixed reception, it went on to become one of the most popular comedy shows of all time.

With an ensemble cast including Carrell, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling to name but a few, the sitcom ran for nine seasons before it came to an end in 2013.

The US Office and its stars won numerous awards and is considered by many to be one of – if not the – greatest sitcom of all time.

With a spinoff series set to take place in the same universe as the original, there is presumably the possibility that some of our Scranton favourites could make an appearance.

A full-scale reunion is out of the question, however, it has been said.
