NBC has announced that the popular comedy The Office will call it a wrap after the upcoming ninth season.
Producer Greg Daniels said that the final year will be exciting and memorable and will take creative chances. He also said the show will reveal who has been making the mock documentary that has provided the show with its format.
Daniels said, "I think endings can be very powerful."
Will former regional manager Michael Scott return as a guest? Daniels says he hopes Steve Carell will reprise his role as the socially inept boss, but he isn't counting on it. Carell left in 2011.
"The Office" was adapted from its British predecessor and premiered on NBC in March 2005.
While its ratings have slipped, it's still NBC's highest-rated scripted series.
