Michael Scott's 'Threat Level Midnight' Movie Has Finally Been Released | 22 Words

For fans of NBC sitcom smash The Office, the years since the show's end in 2013 have been dark ones, to say the least. Sure, we've had Cards Against Humanity games, and even a recently announced podcast launch. But for loyal Dunder-Mifflin followers, nothing has quite been enough. Until now.

Because it has been announced that, after much fan outcry, the mythical Michael Scott movie Threat Level Midnight is finally available to watch.

And, as you could probably expect, fans are going crazy for the news.

The Office is one of NBC's best loves sitcoms.

It was aired from 2005 to 2013, and is still available on a variety of streaming sites. This means, even though it has ended, it’s never really left the cultural zeitgeist.

Here are a few of its stars hanging out in 2005.

From left to right, we have John Krasinksi, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, and BJ Novak. They played Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly, Dwight Shrute and Ryan the temp, respectively.

Some fans don't know that The Office was actually a remake.

It's based on the British BBC series of the same name, which premiered in 2001 and starred Ricky Gervais.

The show gained a cult following.

It's still extremely popular to this day, and can be streamed on Amazon Prime. If you haven't watched it yet, we highly recommend!

People absolutely love the show.

Despite finishing almost 6 years ago, fans have remained loyal. The Office-based humour has a good presence on the internet, and the show will likely continue its reign of popularity for years to come.

Its high-quality humor is one of the reasons for its ongoing popularity.


The cast of characters alongside the unlikely escapades they get up to over the show's nine seasons never fail to raise a laugh.

The show also has a surprisingly sweet core.

The relationships between the different Office characters could warm anyone's heart. The show is a perfect balance of cringe-inducingly funny and touchingly moving.

There are certain scenes from The Office which will never get old.

Like this scene of unfortunate accountant Kevin dropping a gigantic tub of chili, which is equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking.

The inside jokes from the show still strike a chord today.

Pam getting wasted at a work event at Chili's, anyone? Jenna Fischer, the actress who portrayed the receptionist, posted this tweet last year and got over 380,000 likes.

In fact, the whole cast is worth a Twitter follow.

Also, how adorable is it that the stars are all actually friends in real life?

The show is bursting at the seams with inside jokes.

Here, Jim complains about Dwight throwing the most depressing birthday party imaginable - complete with brown and grey deflated balloons and that iconic "banner."

It's also eminently quotable.

Michael Scott, the boss, is pictured here about to jump off the office building to prove a point to his co-workers.

The Office has also given us some of the most iconic reaction GIFs out there.

This eye roll, by long suffering salesman Stanley, is the perfect response to a wide variety of annoying situations.

Another reason for the show's ongoing popularity?


The relationships between the characters. A firm fan favorite was the will-they, won't-they romance between reluctant salesman Jim and shy receptionist Pam.

The show went off the air in 2013.

And since then, fans have had to rely solely on reruns to get their Dunder Mifflin fix. The show does stand up to a second (or third, or fourth) watch - but it's not the same.

And sure, there have been tidbits here and there.

Every so often, Office fans will get some never before seen info or a behind-the-scenes secret - even a card game or a podcast! But things just weren't the same.

We've been hungry for new content.

And in the almost 7 years since the show left our screens, many of us have wondered what happened to all our favorite and beloved characters next.

But don't worry.

Because NBC have recently revealed some very exciting news for Office fans.

Fans of the show have long enjoyed one very specific aspect.

Michael Scott created a movie within the show called Threat Level Midnight - and it is absolutely hilarious.

The main character is Michael "Scarn."

And he is fighting against his mortal enemy, Goldface, who is trying to sabotage an NHL game.

(Unintentional) hilarity ensues.

In The Office's seventh season, we get to see some parts of the movie - but it wasn't available to watch in full, until now.

And fans are very excited.

"This is literally the best Christmas present I could have ever asked for,"commented one viewer.

And others have made one salient point.

"If this doesn't get nominated for a Dundie Award we gonna have a problem," joked another fan.

God bless NBC.

New Office content is always a winner - but this is particularly incredible.

So, without further ado...

We present Threat Level Midnight. Happy viewing! Fancy learning about another popular reboot? Keep scrolling for all the details on the Saved by the Bell reunion.
