‘The Office’ spoofs ‘Making A Murderer’ and attempts to uncover if Toby is the Scranton Strangler

'Making A Strangler'

A new mock mini documentary tries to determine whether Toby from The Office was actually a serial murderer.

The 10 minute, Making A Murderer-referencing doc makes reference to a popular fan theory that the Scranton Strangler, first introduced in the show’s sixth season, was none other than Dunder-Mifflin’s HR rep Toby Flenderson. Watch below.

Season 7 saw a man named George Howard Skub found guilty of being theStrangler, with Toby a part of the jury.


The American adaptation of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s British classic, The Office ran for nine seasons from 2005 and 2013, with reports recently suggesting that early talks were taking place about reviving the NBC series.

Multiple cast members have voiced their support for the show’s potential revivalincluding Jenna Fischer – who played fan favourite Pam Beesly.

The Office star John Krasinski recently said that he would “love” to get the “gang back together” for a potential revival of the US show, but hasn’t been contacted about it yet.

Krasinski – who played Beesly’s love interest Jim Halpert – has spoken to Ellen DeGeneres about reports of the show’s return.


“I did hear that… on the internet,” Krasinski said. “Guess who didn’t get a call? Me. What does that say? NBC’s like ‘You know who we didn’t like? Jim.’”

After DeGeneres said that they couldn’t continue the show without him, Krasinski replied: “Well it looks like they are. I haven’t gotten a call yet.”

On whether he would want to be part of a revival season, he said: “Are you kidding? I’d love to get that gang back together.”
