John Krasinski reportedly sold ‘Some Good News’ following a ‘massive bidding war’

Some Good News TV Show canceled or renewed

And while John will no longer be the host, he will still have an on-air presence.

The YouTube series dedicated to good news, often related to everyday people, has been licensed to ViacomCBS after what the Hollywood Reporter describes as a "massive bidding war".

And in the space of eight weekly episodes, the show has gained a wild amount of traction, with 2.56M subscribers on YouTube and fans posting content from every corner of the globe. It's also expected to air on the company's linear TV channels, including Comedy Central, which is producing the show through its Comedy Central Productions shingle. A new host will be announced at a later date. Possible homes for the "SGN" content include CBS All Access, where it would likely debut, and CBS News, which could use it as a recurring feature in broadcasts. Among the buzziest episodes were an Office reunion with Krasinski's co-star Steve Carell (followed by the cast's recreation of Jim and Pam's wedding dance), a virtual prom for high school seniors missing out on their big dance, a surprise Hamilton performance from the original Broadway cast and more.


"Could not be more excited and proud to be partnering with CBS/Viacom to be able to bring "Some Good News" to so many more people", Krasinksi said in a statement, per the outlets.

Krasinski aired his last episode of Some Good News - his YouTube show that shares exactly what the name implies - this week, presumably concluding that there was no room to grow after marrying a couple on Zoom.

Meanwhile, fans of John's other buzz worthy property - A Quiet Place - eagerly await the sequel A Quiet Place Part II starring his wife Emily Blunt, which was supposed to hit theaters in March just as the pandemic hit.
