Executive Producer confirms that the popular white-collar workplace sitcom will be ending with Season 9.
IGN has confirmed that the once-funny comedy The Office will be ending with Season 9. Executive Producer Greg Daniels announced that the show that made Rainn Wilson sort of famous and made America adore the antics of Michael, Pam and that one guy who name I always forget, will finally be hanging up its kicks after Season 9.
Fans of the show will be relieved to know that spinning out of The Office will be a series called The Farm. This new spinoff series, currently in development, will feature Dwight Schrute and his family doing (assumedly) Schrute-like things. An episode of the Office will feature a “backdoor pilot” to this show, assuring fans that it will be a surefire success, much like Joey after Friends.
Daniels also announced that this final season of the Office would let fans meet the documentary crew (the people behind the cameras).
All that I can really say is that I will miss the Office. It’s the place where I first discovered that black dude who was in Zack & Miri Make a Porno. Oh and Ed Helms too! However, it’s a sad day for fans of the Office - all sixteen of them. The show weathered a long storm and remained on the air despite many claims that it “was no longer funny” or that it “sucked after Steve Carrell left”. I would personally like to thank all the people behind the Office for giving America a show that will always, always be funnier than Outhouse reporter Jude Terror.
