The Office to End After Nine Seasons in May

by at . Comments

After nine seasons on NBC, The Office will air its final episode next May.

Executive producer Greg Daniels confirmed that Season 9 will be its last.

"This year feels like the last chance to … make an artistic ending for the show," Daniels said of the show based on the beloved UK comedy of the same name.

The Office Cast

The Office debuted in the U.S. in 2005, making a star out of Steve Carell as Michael Scott, hapless manager of paper company Dunder-Mifflin's Scranton branch.

Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, BJ Novak, Mindy Kaling, Ed Helms and others have co-starred hilariously in the long-running pseudo-documentary.

Carell left the series after its seventh season in 2010. Daniels says viewers won't want to miss all the questions that will be answered during the swan song.

Among the big reveals? "We're going to see who is behind the documentary. [Fans] will pleased and excited by what we have planned for them this year.”

"There's so much to pay off after nine seasons ... My biggest concern is just packing in all these great ideas the writing staff has into the ending."
