Well, maybe it will be a good season after all? The Office’s original showrunner Greg Daniels is set to return to Dunder Mifflin this season to help bring the series to a close after 9 seasons. Yup, it’s confirmed, The Office will end after this upcoming season.
The show’s been sluggishly going the last few seasons and with much of the cast doing other projects, needing contracts negotiated, having movie careers, actually putting a bow on the series and tying up loose ends through a finite number of shows left, should make for a great send off of the show. Daniels revealed that some people will return to send off the show but there’s no word if Steve Carell will be one of them. This show ending also has no impact on the Dwight Schrute spin-off .
He revealed we’ll get answers to the following…
- The Scranton Strangler will be unmasked.
- The final season will be a “big” one for Jim and Pam. “There’s a lot of drama [for them],” he teased. “The story is definitely not over for them.”
- “Daryl will learn PowerPoint,” he shared.
- John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson and Ed Helms will enter the final season as producers.
- The news has no impact on the possible Dwight-centric spin-off The Farm, which will be introduced in an episode of The Office to air this fall.
