The Office Gives Steve Carell an Extended Farewell Episode

by at . Comments

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.

The Office Quotes

I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them.

Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation. An improversation.
