While the spinoff would ideally include all of the show’s current characters, actors John Krasinski[ Jim], Jenna Fischer[Pam, BJ Novak[ Ryan] and Ed Helms[ Andy] are still negotiating contracts for the potential forthcoming season. Both Krasinski and Helms have films lined up which would require reduced number of episodes to accommodate their involvement with film productions.
