Despite earlier pointers that Steve Carell would be coming back to The Office before it wraps up for good this spring, NBC’s Chairman Robert Greenblatt has told TV Line that this now isn’t looking likely at all:
There’s maybe a little hail mary pass on a cameo but I think the decision is that he’ll go out without him sort of compromising his exit.
Well, that’s a shame. Or a lie.
It’d be nice if we’re being fibbed to, but I’m not so sure about that. Seems like the earlier planning and scheming may have come to nothing.
The final episode is said to be a one hour special and is expected to air on May 9th. Tears?
