Look out, Dunder-Mifflin! Mindy Kaling might have picked up her own show on FOX, James Spader may have left behind his role as Robert California, and Dwight Schrute might eventually resign for 'The Farm,' but 'The Office' has officially cast a new series regular for the now-confirmed ninth season of the hit workplace comedy. So, why does the new recruit look so familiar?
With 'The Office' guaranteed for a ninth season, the major cast (minus Mindy Kaling) locked down, and most of the Upfront week surprises over, a ninth season for the long-running NBC comedy seems by this point completely in order. Still, with Paul Lieberstein confirmed to step down as show-runner, what big talent just got an invitation to join, and what's still left to fill?
Though most of the initial concerns have subsided, 'The Office's main stars in place for next season and a guaranteed 22-episode renewal, a few questions still remain over the fate of the long-running NBC comedy. With Mindy Kaling confirmed to exit for her new FOX sitcom 'The Mindy Project,' and 'The Office' still in need of a show-runner after Paul Lieberstein stepped down, who might step in for the job, and what past experience could he have?
'The Office’ Season 8 files its twenty-fourth and final episode of the season in "Free Family Portrait Studio," as Andy infiltrates Dunder-Mifflin as a janitor in order to make his reveal of David Wallace taking over that much more dramatic, while Dwight launches the titular portrait studio as a means to get a DNA sample to test Angela's baby!
Last week’s ‘The Office’ “Turf War” saw Andy nabbing the client out from under the squabbling branches of Dunder-Mifflin that he thought would get his job back, only for Robert to refuse (busy with his own scandal), necessitating Andy's approach of David Wallace, so what will the season finale bring? With all the departures and renewals, will there even be an 'Office' to come back to next season?

Fear not, fans of 'The Office!' Even with Steve Carell gone, executive producer Mindy Kaling officially leaving for her new FOX sitcom, Paul Lieberstein stepping down as show-runner, Rainn Wilson preparing for his own spin-off, the departure of James Spader, waning ratings and critical interest...boy, this is a depressing list. What was I talking about? Oh! Jim, Pam and Andy will officially be back for season 9!
If you've ever worked in an office that was on the verge of imploding, you know just how tense the mood in the air can be. So imagine what the actual stars and crew of NBC's 'The Office' might feel, given all the swirling rumors of cast and creative departures, amidst critical decline! Thankfully, 'Office' star Jenna Fischer is on hand to quell some of the panic.
In this week's dose of ridiculous we've got some news from those jokers at Lionsgate and promises of progress on long-gestating film projects. Batman tours America in the worst thing to happen to the caped crusader since Joel Schumacher, and 'The Office' just won't die already.
What do you do when your star has left you and your replacements haven't worked out, and much of your cast is ready to move on?
