    Default Steve Carell Unlikely To Return To The Office, Says NBC's Chairman

    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?

    I did get a little choked up when Pam finally said goodbye to him as he was leaving

    It was super weird when they brought Jan back and acted like Michael didn't exist. Like he'd been erased.

    I think this is probably a lie.

    Talk about a show that has gone on about 4 seasons too far.

    It was a big mistake to make Andy "Michael Scott-lite" on the show, and for all that weirdness with James Spader last year.

    I haven't seen anything from the farewell season yet....

    It would be nice if Carell did at least a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo, but his last episode was a such a high point for the show that I understand if he wants that to remain his last performance as Michael Scott.

    Andy has been even worse this year. At least he left for a long boat trip, and hasn't been back yet.

    I didn't see anything weird in that episode. She was his ex, not addressing their relationship didn't feel strange to me.
