Fans of John Krasinski's YouTube series Some Good News received uplifting news of their own this week. The series launched in March to report on positive stories during the current health crisis, with The Office alum playing host to a variety of special guests, such as Oprah, Brad Pitt, Billie Eilish, and even NASA astronauts, all from the comfort of his home. As reported by CinemaBlend, the talk show is moving from YouTube to a more permanent home, expected to even air on the streaming service CBS All Access.

After eight cheerful episodes and a few short clips, with the series airing its last episode on May 17, negotiations are currently in progress with ViacomCBS execs to launch Some Good News across the company's numerous outlets. The ViacomCBS deal reportedly includes weekly episodes of the series as well as short-form content to appear on the company's other platforms. While creator Krasinski will sadly no longer host the show, he will serve as executive producer and will make occasional guest appearances.

Krasinski released a statement about the opportunity to continue with the show, which reads:

"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. From the first episode, our goal was to create a news show dedicated entirely to good news. Never did I expect to be joining the ranks of such a historic news organization as CBS."

Even if The Office alum won't serve as the series' host any longer, we're sure fans will love to see the continuation of good news flowing.
