The highly anticipated return film to the workplace comedy series has been scrapped by Paramount
These workaholics are unemployed.
There’s bad news for all the workaholics fans out there, as it looks like Paramount+ has officially canceled the workaholics movie five weeks before filming was scheduled to begin. Series star and executive producer Adam Devine shared the news on his Instagram page, stating that they would have more information on the details on their podcast tomorrow.
Devine says in the post that they are speaking to other streamers, so there’s still hope that the movie will get shot and there will be one final adventure with Adam, Blake and Anders. The film was to have the original cast and look at what it’s like to work during the pandemic and the plan was to use the film as a starting point for a continuing series with a new cast.
Workaholics was a sitcom about the adventures of three college dropout friends, roommates, and employees at a telemarketing company in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Boys spend their days working as little as possible while getting as high as possible.
The show had mixed reviews when it came out but has gotten better with each passing year and to date the show has an 86% critic rating and an 82% audience rating Rotten tomatoes.
The sitcom, released on Comedy Central, ran for six seasons. It was written, directed and performed with Adam Devine (Pitch Perfect), Blake Anderson (Woke), Anders Holm (The Mindy Project) and Kyle Newacheck (Studio City Kings). Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Maribeth Monroe (The Good Place) and Erik Griffin (Sports TV) were recurring players.
Workaholics was the show that drew Hollywood attention to this crew of actors and writers who have since found work in both television and cinema, mostly as supporting actors playing characters who have a funny bone or two.
