Steve Carell to Depart The Office On...

at . Comments

It's almost time for The Office viewers to say goodbye to Steve Carell. The actor has filmed his final episode and NBC has now announced its air date: April 28.

While details regarding the way in which Michael Scott departs Scranton are being kept quiet, we can confirm that Greg Daniels - who originally adapted Ricky Gervais' British version of The Office - penned the farewell installment.

Carell will be around long enough to interact with Will Ferrell, at least, who premieres on April 14 and sticks around until May 5. His character will NOT serve as Scott's replacement, though.

To whom will that honor fall? Viewers will find out on the May 19, one-hour long finale.

The Office Quotes

Dwight: What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No, I go for the chandelier. It's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I like the cold. Thirty years later, I get a postcard. I have a son and he's the chief of police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris, by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years; she's never taken another lover. I don't care, I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me... No, don't sue me. That is the opposite of the point that I'm trying to make.
