Steve Carell Returning to Our Screens in New Amazon Comedy
| LAST UPDATE 06/27/2021
Go and set those calendars, because everyone's favorite boss is officially returning to our screens! That's right, Steve Carell is set to star in an upcoming Amazon comedy. Hang on while we break down everything we know so far...
For starters, the Office star's latest adventure will look slightly different than his time in Threat Level Midnight. Titled, The Rabbit Factor, the dark comedy will follow Henri Koskinen (played by Carell): a responsible and skilled mathematician who seemingly has it all figured out. That is, until his world gets turned upside down one fateful day.
After losing his job and inheriting an adventure park plagued by financial struggles from his brother, Henri learns he can't solve every problem life hurls his way. Sound familiar? There's good reason for that. The upcoming comedy is actually based on a Finnish book by the very same name, penned by award-winning author Antti Tuomainen.
And while some of us might already know how that story ends, it looks like we’ll have to wait a while to see how its on-screen adaptation plays out. Production, as well as a release date, unfortunately have yet to be announced. But don’t worry just yet, we’ve got lots of other Steve Carell adventures to tide us over in the meantime.
In case you forgot, the actor's been starring in Apple TV+'s The Morning Show alongside Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon since 2019. And lucky for us, the award-winning series is actually set to debut a second season in only a matter of time. Safe to say, from the looks of the trailer below? Things have definitely changed since those cameras stopped rolling...
Are you as excited as we are? The latest installment is set to return to our screens this Fall - exclusively on Apple TV+. Until then, be sure to stay tuned for all the latest updates. And feel free to check out these comedic gems streaming on Netflix right now (psst, Steve Carell makes an appearance).
