Paramount+ Has Scrapped The Workaholics Movie Weeks Before The Start Of Production

Over on his Instagram, DeVine explained the news as only he could:

“Welp, Paramount + decided to cancel the Workaholics movie. Obviously, this news is the loosest butthole. We were suppose to begin filming in 5 weeks! P + told us 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. Tomorrow tune into our podcast @podimportant to hear us talk about it. As always, take it sleazy, and I’m out. -Demamp”

It’s hard not to blame him for being butt hurt, especially given the last-minute cancellation. “Workaholics” ran for seven seasons on Comedy Central, and the guys also created the Netflix comedy “Game Over, Man!,” so there’s a built-in fanbase curious to see what might happen in a “Workaholics” movie. To find out more about the cancellation and how the guys feel about it, check out their podcast, “This is Important,” where the trio and fellow series creator Kyle Newachek will dish the deets and air their (extremely valid) butt hurt.
