While our beloved '30 Rock' will come to a close on January 31, we shan't forget that 2013 will also see the final episodes of 'The Office' airing this May. And while much has been said about the final hours of the Dunder-Mifflin crew, from returning guests to unraveling the mystery behind the documentary team, the cast and crew recently took to the TCA tour to preview the series end, including several returning cast members (and several still not). Find out the latest on the 'Office' series finale inside!

After a holiday break, 'The Office' returns with "Lice," the tenth episode of the season. Assuming there's 23 episodes, we're not yet at the halfway point of the season, but as this is their last season we're guessing that the writers will put their house in order before the finale. That's being saved for later episodes it seems as "Lice" feels like filler.
While everyone has their own opinion of the direction NBC's 'The Office' has taken in the years without Steve Carell, as the series approaches its final swan song most would agree any finale would feel incomplete without Carell's character Michael Scott returning for one final "that's what she said." So while we move closer to 'The Office's ninth season and series finale, will Steve Carell return? NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt has an answer that might surprise you, so check out the new details inside!
For as many big name guest stars as 'The Office' has seen walking through the halls of Dunder-Mifflin over the years, the long-running NBC series has had quite a bit of talent behind the camera as well. While previous episodes have seen Joss Whedon and 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston helming 'The Office,' now it seems the acclaimed Jon Favreau will be stepping behind the camera before the May series finale! Find out what role Jon Favreau will play in the final episodes of 'The Office' inside!
Though we've known for some time that the current season of 'The Office' would represent the final year for Jim, Pam and the other Dunder-Mifflin crew, some months ago development began on the Dwight Schrute spin-off 'The Farm,' to be aired as a backdoor pilot in 'The Office's final season. Somewhat sparingly, NBC decided not to go through with the Schrute-centric spin-off, but what of the material shot? New reports say NBC plans to give a fitting end to Dwight Schrute, using a modified version of 'The Farm' to do so. Find out the changes inside!
'The Office' still has a good deal of episodes to go in its final season, but nothing will change the fact that the show's upcoming 2013 run will represent the last of our time spent at Dunder-Mifflin. One point we've heard the final season will certainly set out to address is the role of the cameras themselves, which provide the documentary-style humor much of the series bases itself on. So, how will they play into the show's endgame? Series star Rainn Wilson offers up new details inside!
As 'The Office' prepares to head into its final run of episodes, finally closing the door on Dunder-Mifflin after nine years, we've been expecting a flurry of guest stars to come out of the woodwork. Mind you, we figured most guests would belong to seasons past, particularly one Steve Carell, but a Basketball Hall of Famer is just as good! So what could bring Julius "Dr. J" Erving to 'The Office's' final season, and what might it mean for Jim Halpert?
With a title like "Dwight Christmas" you have to figure that the writers were waiting to use that one for years, and since this is the final season of 'The Office,' what better time than now? The last episode "The Target" brought some resolution to the affair Angela's husband was having with Oscar, and Jim seems to be working half-time for the company now, so perhaps this episode will put the final pieces of the season into place.
Admittedly, we haven't paid much attention to 'The Office' alum Mindy Kaling's solo FOX sitcom 'The Mindy Project,' mostly only when former 'Office' co-stars drop by. The latest of which was Kaling's "Subtle Sexuality" partner Ellie Kemper, but now Kaling's most frequent 'Office' compatriot B.J. Novak has signed on for an appearance! Will Ryan and Kelly have a secret reunion? Find out Novak's 'The Mindy Project' role inside!
While many believe 'The Office' should have ended with Steve Carell's departure, or at least been put out of its misery following the poorly-received eighth season, there's no stopping now that the show has officially declared the current season to be the last. To that end, the series has plotted a number of resolutions to its longest running-arcs, but how will the series actually end? Series star Rainn Wilson has a few new details to offer, including a surprising twist!
