From the Department of Internet Rumors comes this tidbit, courtesy of TV Guide: The Office is reportedly looking to expand into a spinoff series, a la Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. The show would air a special episode introducing a number of new characters, and then those characters would become the focus of a new series. Unlike the Grey's/Private plan, none of the original cast members would end up in the new series, and producers are apparently searching for "a name" to headline the potential new show.
A year ago, I might have said something like "there's never too much Office!" But after watching those hourlong episodes this year, I think there is, actually, such a thing as too much Office. I'd rather see them focus on keeping one show strong rather than setting up a potential second series. Then again, maybe NBC could harness the power of the show and end up with two hilarious comedies. Anything's possible, right? What do you think?
