It’s always so painful to say your final goodbyes to those shows you grew to love over the years, and you find yourself wondering how you will go on after it’s over and what your new favorite show will be. The Office is no exception to this, and it’s only a matter of days before Dunder Mifflin closes it’s doors and turns off their camera’s forever.
NBC announced that our beloved show will end on Thursday, May 16th and it will not only be the series finale, but it will be the shows 200th episode. Office boss Greg Daniels and the wonderful cast have remained very tight lipped about what we can expect in the finale, but he did reveal that the final episode will not be jam-packed with a goodbye to everyone at Dunder Mifflin. Daniels says ” If you look at how many characters there are here, and you think that it will be be our 200th half hour when we do the finale, I don’t think we’re planning on packing everything into the last episode,” he told reporters during a TCA visit to the of the NBC series last month.
Daniels goes on to say ” I would encourage people, if you are waiting for the end of The Office to re-tune in, I would start doing it right away.” In terms of Steve Carrell’s return as former boss Michael Scott, the official word is that he mostly likely won’t appear before the end, but we are still hopeful for a cameo. “Steve is very much of the opinion that the “Goodbye Michael” episode and the story arc that we did leading up to it was his goodbye to the fans and to the show, and that the stuff we’re doing this season is the goodbye that the rest of the show gets to have,” Daniels said. “So, at the moment we don’t have any plans for him to come back.”
