In what is the loosest butthole decision of 2023 so far, Paramount+ has cancelled the Workaholics movie five weeks before principal photography was scheduled to begin, according to franchise star Adam DeVine.

DeVine (Adam DeMamp) – who was set to reunite with co-stars and fellow Mail Order Comedy troupe members Blake Anderson (Blake Anderson), Anders Holm (Anders Holmvik); as well as Kyle Newacheck (Kyle Hevacheck) – posted a message via Instagram to break the unfortunate news. Apparently, feature-length shenanigans with the TelAmeriCorp trio no longer align with Paramount’s “global strategy.”

“We are deeply butt hurt about this decision because we were so excited to bring the weird one last time,” Adam DeVine noted in his statement.

“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.”

Although DeVine, Anderson, and Holm had previously reunited after the hit Comedy Central show’s original run for Netflix‘s Game Over, Man! – which certainly shared a lot of the same sensibilities as their most notable collaboration – the now-cancelled Workaholics movie would have effectively marked the first time they graced our screens as the world’s most entertaining college dropouts, housemates, and telemarketers since 2017.

Although not all hope is lost. The Workaholics crew will apparently shop the semi-formed project to other streamers, with Adam DeVine himself adding: “Hopefully we will get to make this insanely fun movie somewhere else.”

But given how the intention was always for the Workaholics movie to lay the foundation for a sequel series – “the seeding of a next generation for what a new Workaholics could look like,” according to MTV Entertainment Group President Chris McCarthy – it’s safe to assume the buck stops here for any additional Workaholics content.
