John Krasinski will host a few ‘Some Good News’!!!! Despite wrapping and selling his hit quarantine web series to CBS earlier this month, John Krasinski will return to host “Some Good News” — well, some “Some Good News.”
While chatting with fellow “The Office” alum Rainn Wilson Tuesday on Instagram Live, Krasinski explained his decision to hand off the feel-good show and revealed that he will still appear on “a couple” new episodes as host, though the faux news program is moving forward with a different lead anchor.
“We have a lot of really fun stuff planned, and I can’t wait to dig in,” Krasinski said. “I’m going to be a part of it whenever I can, and I’m going to host a couple [episodes] and bring on a different community of people. … We’re really, really excited about it.”
“I was only planning on doing eight of them during quarantine because … I have these other things that I’m going to be having to do very soon — like ‘Jack Ryan’ and all this other stuff,” Krasinski explained to Wilson. “But more than that … writing, directing, producing and all those things with a couple of my friends was so much. I knew it wouldn’t be sustainable with my prior commitments.
“The two options always were going to be that I leave it off at eight [episodes] in my office — which, I would love to keep doing this show from my office forever — it wasn’t sustainable.”
“Like I said in the first episode of the show, I think it is something that we have always needed, and I’m so glad that we were able to bring it … because we’re so excited to keep doing it. But I think that at the end of the day, it’s just something that was so amazing. I felt like I was a part of a really, really special community of people.”
A premiere date for CBS’ “Some Good News” has not been announced.
