The Office to end next year
Wed, 22 Aug 2012 8:11a.m.
The Office will be closing next year.
Producer Greg Daniels says the NBC comedy will conclude business at Dunder Mifflin after the upcoming ninth season.
He said Tuesday that the final year will be exciting and memorable and will take creative chances. And it will reveal who's been making the mock documentary that has provided the show with its format.
Daniels says, "I think endings can be very powerful."
Cast members have taken to Twitter to confirm their news and express their feelings.
"It is true. This is our last season. We hope to give a real end to these characters we love to play. Thx for watching," says Angela Kinsey, while Brian Baumgartner - who plays accountant Kevin on the show - chipped in "Yes. The news is true. Dunder Mifflin will stop selling paper on television following Season 9."
Will former regional manager Michael Scott return as a guest? Daniels says he hopes Steve Carell will reprise his role as the socially inept boss, but he isn't counting on it. Carell left in 2011.
The Office was adapted from its British predecessor and premiered on NBC in March 2005.
While its ratings have slipped, it's still NBC's highest-rated scripted series.
