Greg Daniels has been plotting a potential The Office spin-off for quite some time, and it seems he’s finally making it happen. He co-created a new series set in the same universe, and Domhnall Gleeson and Sabrina Impacciatore will reportedly be a part of its cast.

This series won’t be a remake or a sequel of the workplace sitcom we all know and love but on an offshoot set in the same universe. Daniels co-created the series alongside Michael Koman, and it will reportedly focus on new characters working at a new office, which exists in the same universe as the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.

This project came together after Daniels gathered a group of writers to work on a potential The Office spin-off. Nathan For You co-creator Michael Koman quickly emerged as one of the leading creative voices and eventually joined Daniels as a co-creator of this offshoot.

Domhnall Gleeson, who previously led the mini-series The Patient alongside The Office star Steve Carell, is eying one of the lead roles in this project. His filmography also includes the Star Wars franchise and notable roles in About Time, Ex Machina, and Brooklyn.

He’ll be joined by Sabrina Impacciatore, the Italian actress best known for her Emmy-nominated role in the second season of The White Lotus.
