The Office Gives Steve Carell an Extended Farewell Episode
NBC needs longer than 30 minutes to say goodbye to Michael Scott.
The network announced today that Steve Carell's final episode of The Office will be extended to 50 minutes! Parks and Recreation will take that extra 10 and extend into the next half hour, stretching itself for a 40 minute-episode beginning at 9:50 on April 28.
That week's Office is the second part of Michael Scott's farewell, appropriately titled "Goodbye, Michael (Part Two)." The first part airs a week earlier, April 21.
Will Ferrell comes on board as Michael's temporary replacement when the show returns from hiatus this week. You can watch a sneak peek of the funnyman's debut here.
