Steve Carell sent fans into a frenzy after proposing a crossover of two beloved TV shows.
The Office and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia are both fan favorite comedies, so bringing the two together would be incredible.
It’s Always Sunny star Rob McElhenney revealed on Instagram that his show was filming outside the building where they shot The Office.
“So apparently this is Dunder Mifflin, I guess, where they shot The Office,” he said in an Instagram video outside the Chandler Valley Center Studios in Panorama City, California. “Wasn’t 100 percent sure of that, but they’re gone now, they’re off the air. And now you got… sorry, [Steve] Carell. You got these guys now.”
“Sorry, I guess your show got canceled or whatever, but we’re still doing ours. So we’re doing it here,” McElhenney said, captioning his post, “The bar inside Dunder Mifflin is now called Paddy’s.”
Carell, who played regional manager Michael Scott in The Office, responded to McElhenney’s post on Twitter. “Rob, this blood feud has to end. “It’s Always Sunny in Scranton”. Thoughts?,” he tweeted.

McElhenney quickly responded with a joking acceptance of Carell’s offer, writing back, “SCRANTON IS ONLY A HUNDRED AND TWENTY MILES AWAY FROM PHILADELPHIA. THIS WORKS. WHO WANTS IT MORE – @fxnetworks @nbc @netflix @hulu?? The bidding shall begin at five hundred million dollars.”

Angela Kinsey, who played Angela Martin on The Office, wrote, “I think we all need this. Sign me up for the bitchy blonde. 😉.”
The Office ran from 2005-2013 on NBC and is still highly watched today. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premiered in 2005 on FX and is currently filming its 14th season.
