NBC’s “The Office” showed everybody there is a worse place to work and crazier managers than those we complain almost daily. Unfortunately, the TV series is close to finale, as producer Greg Daniels announces “The Office” will end with season 9.
Although the show’s ratings went down during the last three seasons, “The Office” is one of today’s most beloved TV series. We grew fond of the cast, with Jim and Pam’s love story, Dwight’s craziness, Kevin’s childish innocence, Oscar’s comments and Creed’s senility. Knowing “The Office” is close to the finale is for fans just like losing a dear old friend.
The next season of NBC’s “The Office” will be the show’s last one. Greg Daniels, executive producer announced on Tuesday, season 9 is about finding that artistic ending to a show so many people love. “We have thought about what the future of the show should be and always held the values that we should feel like a family and make something that has a lot of artistic integrity” said Greg Daniels.
“And so this year feels like for us the last chance to really go out together and to make an artistic ending for the show that pays off a lot of the stuff that has mattered most to fans with the core characters” the executive producer told reporters during Tuesday’s press conference. “So this will be the last season of ‘The Office’, and we’re planning a very big, exciting last season” he concluded.
Greg Daniels leaked some of “The Office” season 9 twists. For instance, the Scranton Strangler is going to be unmasked. Some fans are sure Toby is behind the murders and it would finally justify Michael’s aggressive attitude towards the HR guy. Also, season 9 is going to be “a big Jim and Pam year”, but they already got married and have two children so it makes you wonder what’s bigger than that.
Obviously, everybody wants to see Steve Carell (Michael) back on the show. Greg Daniels said he’s got the same wish, but it’s nothing sure. “We’re not going to put so much pressure on Steve by writing something that can only work if he returns” Greg Daniels said. “But it would be fantastic if he would return. I think for that, for him, he really loved how he was exited and is probably anxious about not messing up such a stylish exit” the executive producer added.
