Adam DeVine has given all Workaholics fans out there some bad news over on his Instagram. The Workaholics movie that was set for filming in a couple of weeks has been canceled. DeVine said that Paramount+ told them that the movie didn’t fit into the company’s “new global strategy”.
Welp, Paramount + decided to cancel the ‘Workaholics’ movie. Obviously, this news is the loosest butthole. We were suppose to begin filming in 5 weeks! [Paramount+] told us [we] don’t fit their new ‘global’ strategy. We are deeply butt hurt about this decision because we were so excited to bring the weird one last time. I’m butt hurt that I don’t get to work with my best friends again, I’m butt hurt for the fans, and I’m butt hurt for our loyal crew, and other cast members who are now going to have to scramble to find new jobs. We are out to other streamers, and hopefully we will get to make this insanely fun movie somewhere else.
Hopefully, this isn’t a sign of things to come for Paramount like it was with Warner Bros and their decisions to cancel films just before they were filming or outright cancel almost finished films as they did with Batgirl. The original series Workaholics aired on Comedy Central from 2011 to 2017 for 86 episodes. The movie was supposed to cap off the series.
We’ll have to see if the movie gets picked up by any other streamers out there.
