We may be in crunch time of 'The Office's final season, but there's still a number of places left for the show to go. As was introduced recently, there's the looming threat of Brian the boom guy to Jim and Pam's marriage, and Andy may be in hot water with corporate for his three month absence, while Erin and Pete may take it to the next level. Tonight's episode "Moving On" (directed by Jon Favreau) is an hour long,and we've only got so many episodes left, so hopefully it delivers.
As we head into the final stretch of 'The Office,' there are now two questions remaining: Will Jim and Pam live happily ever after, and will the Brian the boom guy subplot work? Last week Brian got fired and seems close to Pam, so we'd expect that to go somewhere this week, right? The good news: this week brings the return of Ed Helms to the show.
Whether 'The Office' peaked with Steve Carell, or the last two years have successfully served in his stead, there can be no stopping the official end to the series arriving this May. NBC has long confirmed the show's inevitable end for 2013, with no chance of a Dwight Schrute spin-off to follow, but now the final season has truly gotten real. NBC has set an official end date to the series at Thursday, May 16 with an hour-long episode, but how special will 'The Office' series finale truly be?
Granted 'The Office' has launched the careers of a number of household names, few have stuck out from the later seasons as strongly as Ellie Kemper, best known for her role as Pam's kooky replacement secretary Erin Hannon. And while the series will finally come to a close this May, few stars will keep of the TV for long, as Kemper too has been granted her own NBC series pilot, 'Brenda Forever.' Find out if Ellie Kemper can hack it on her own inside!
It's been some time since 'The Office' and NBC execs announced that plans for the Dwight Schrute-centric spin-off 'The Farm' were to be scrapped, while last week's "Junior Salesman" featured the introduction of Dwight's "Cousin Zeke" ('Breaking Bad's Matt L. Jones) as the first phase of what would have gone toward the spin-off. With 'The Farm' officially shut down, will NBC air the back-door pilot as an 'Office' episode, or cut most of the additional material? New details on 'The Office's final season inside!
The subject of a Dunder Mifflin commercial has been featured on 'The Office' several times, notably never giving Michael Scott's brilliant ad a chance to shine, but now it seems the paper company has truly invaded the real world. As football fans everywhere prep for the 2013 Super Bowl on Sunday, 'The Office' and Quill.com have made real-life Dunder Mifflin paper products available everywhere, heralded by their new Super Bowl ad! You won't see any of 'The Office' stars, but adorable screaming cats are always a plus!
Tonight's second episode of 'The Office' follows "Junior Salesman," which mostly felt like a filler episode until to the big reveal shot of Brian the boom guy, who is definitely going to be a major player going into the final stretch. This last season is going to be about someone new in Pam's life, but how will it go down? "Vandalism" answers some of those questions.
Last week's episode of 'The Office,' "Customer Loyalty," was the first episode to ever show the documentary crew who are making the film about the lives of the Dunder-Mifflin employees. This week, the show delivers two episodes that are likely to play with our new character Brian the boom guy as 'The Office' crosses the halfway mark of its last season. First up: "Junior Salesman."
With the welcome exception of one Steve Carell, most wouldn't expect a long-running series to go for broke casting major guest stars toward the end of the series, instead focusing on the characters we've come to know and love over the years. It seems 'The Office' will do exactly that however, as legendary sitcom star and comedienne Roseanne Barr will be dropping by Dunder-Mifflin! Find out who Roseanne plays in the last episodes of 'The Office' inside!
Last week's 'The Office' episode "Customer Loyalty" opened up a tremendous can of worms for the long-running NBC series, as after nine years the seemingly omnipresent documentary crew filming Dunder-Mifflin finally stepped out from behind the camera, involving themselves in Jim and Pam's marriage in an alarming way. Many wonder if the mysterious "Brian" will become a major thorn in Jim and Pam's deteriorating relationship, but what does show-runner Greg Daniels have to say about the documentary crew's increasing presence?
