The Office to Possibly Have A Reboot With A Second Version

The Office’s BJ Novak[ Ryan

Indeed, NBC’S The Office has faced a great deal of changes in its current eighth season with Steve Carrell  having departed from the role of Michael Scott  which  ultimately led to the introduction of  James Spader’s character, Robert California as the CEO of Sabre causing Ed Helm’s  character, Andy Bernard to take on the role of regional manager of the Scranton branch . Now the comedic series faces the prospect of having  a new version created if it is renewed for a ninth season. According to a report from Deadline,  executive producer Greg Daniels will soon  be meeting with  executives at NBC network to discuss  the possibility of the  new version  which would include the show’s existing characters as well as new ones.

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. At the same time, Raiin Wilson is expected to depart from the show to star in a  Dwight based spinoff which is currently scheduled to  debut in  early 2013.James Spader would not appear  as Robert California as the actor  announced in  Februry 2012 that he has decided to leave his post at The Office. Obviously  many of these factors will need to be given consideration as a new direction for the show is considered.

What are your thoughts on  a  new version of The Office and what differences would you like to see to this version. Particularly, what types of characters would you like to see  in this new version?How do you think Raiin Wilsons absence and the possible reduced roles of Krasinki and  Helms would impact the show?

James Spader Will Join The Office Cast in Season 8

Indeed, Actor James Spader will be joining the cast for the Office’s upcoming eighth season, reports Entertainment Weekly.Spader, who appeared in the season seven  finale of  The Office  as  Robert California, a manipulative yet awkward genius, who was a potential candidate for replacing Scott’s role as the regional manager of the Scranton branch.

 According to executive  producer, Paul Liberstein, “He’ll have been hired over the summer as the new manager, but within hours, got himself promoted. Within days, he took over the company”.

In another follow up interview ,Liberstein commented that although Spader’s character  has a position at corporate,  he will still be seen a great deal at the Scranton branch.However, the extent of the character’s involvement may vary from episode to episode.”Sometimes he’s in a couple of scenes, and some episodes he’s not in — but some he’s in a lot,” Lieberstein says. “I think family is a big draw for him. We’re saying he’s from the [Scranton] area, so he spends a lot of time supervising this branch.”

Liberstein also commented on the experience involved in having Spader join  the cast, indicating that” the actor has an energy that is completely his own, and The Office has no tools for dealing with this guy. We’re thrilled he’s joining our cast”.

Spader, of course has previously  appeared  as the daring  and provocative attorney, Alan Shore in The Practice and in its spinoff series, Boston Legal, where he  was bestowed with three Emmy awards for his portrayal of the character.

Spader’s arrival marks the  departure of   actress, Kathy Bates who had  portrayed the role of Sabre’s CEO, Jo Bennet ,during The Office’s sixth  and seventh seasons. Though the character of Jo’s unique personality  and strong enthusiasm may be missed by  The Office fans, the actress  can be seen on NBC’S Harry’s Law which was recently renewed for a second season.

 Given that Robert California will have been promoted, there is also still no word on who will the  regional  manager of the Scranton branch.  The characters of  Jim, Darryl and Andy  are likely possibilities , according to Liberstein.

What are your thoughts on how   Spader’s  character   will rise up the ladder  so quickly and how do you think  this will influence both the company and the  storytelling on The Office.Based on what we saw last season, what are your thoughts on how he will interact with the employees of  the Scranton branch.
