Steve Carell to Reprise Michael Scott For The Office Series Finale

Steve Carell is bringing back Michael Scott, if only for one night.

Having left at the end of Season 7 more than two years ago, the beloved actor will return to The Office for the series' May 16 finale, according to reports.

Just last week, creator Greg Daniels sought to quell talk of a Carell cameo, saying he did not want to overshadow the ending for the rest of the characters.

Reading between the lines, that meant Michael Scott's return would only be a small part of the series' much-anticipated swan song, not the focal point.

Reliable sources say he will return a week from Thursday, and this weekend, Carell surprised thousands of Office fans at a wrap party in Scranton, Pa.

In related news, that was the same function in the sitcom's real-life setting that longtime co-star Rainn Wilson ripped US Airways for making him late to.

And in other (potential) Carell news, we think he'd be a good choice to star as the lead in the recently-announced Mister Rogers movie. Don't you?

In any case, are you excited for The Office series finale?

How should the show handle his return, if at all?
