No, not that 'The Office,' but close! Instead, the original 'The Office' co-creator Stephen Merchant is getting into business with HBO once more, working on a series order for 'Hello Ladies,' to be written, directed and headlined by Merchant himself. Picked up for a full eight episodes, the comedy also boasts former 'The Office' writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, but what story does the new series tell? Might it have any connectivity with Merchant's other HBO work?
Well, the end times have officially arrived. No, we're not talking about Hurricane Sandy, but rather 'The Office,' whose fate has finally been sealed. We knew 'The Office' itself would say goodbye after the current season, but now it seems that NBC has officially passed on picking up the Dwight Schrute-centric spin-off 'The Farm.' the backdoor pilot will still air as an 'Office' episode this season, but does this mean 'The Office' is gone for good?
Mindy Kaling may have left 'The Office' behind a little earlier than some of her former co-stars, but these days it seems like every 'Office' star has a future sitcom lined up once the show ends its nine-year run. The latest to set up a new gig is that of Brian Baumgarnter, best known as the often inconsistently slow accountant Kevin Malone. Greg Daniels is on board to produce at ABC, but what could Baumgartner's new show be about?
While we lament that Steve Carell isn't around anymore to play off of his former 'The Daily Show' correspondent, tonight will mark one of the best 'The Office' castings to date, when 'The Colbert Report' host Stephen Colbert drops by Dunder-Mifflin as Andy's old band-mate Broccoli Rob for the NBC sitcom's Halloween episode 'Here Comes Treble.' Of course, Colbert will have plenty of tension with fellow former co-star Ed Helms as well, so how would you like a first look?
Just because 'The Office' will officially come to an end after nine seasons by the end of the year doesn't mean you won't still be seeing the Dunder-Mifflin crew on TV. No, we're not talking about 'The Farm,' 'The Mindy Project,' or even Angela Kinsey's new FOX comedy. Instead' breakout star Craig Robinson will finally get his due when 'The Office' creator Greg Daniels develops a new NBC sitcom around him! But what role will the loveable 'Hot Tub Time Machine' star play?
After a week off because of the Vice-Presidential debates, 'The Office' returns with the central conflict of its final season seeming to be Jim wanting a new job that Pam is not crazy about. How will this drama unfold, and what's to be made of the new guys Pete and Clark?
The last episode ("Andy's Ancestry") was the season high so far, which makes us wonder: has the show hit its stride, or are we in for a weak send off? As a bonus, the episode was directed by Bryan Cranston, so it's got that going for it. Read on for our review of this week's episode "Work Bus."
Stars of 'The Office,' it is officially time to abandon ship. Mindy Kaling certainly got the ball rolling early by departing the NBC staple's final season for her own series 'The Mindy Project' on FOX, and many other 'Office' stars have movie careers to fall back on as well. So while the series may end up continuing in the Dwight Schrute-centric 'The Farm,' what current 'Office' star has made a deal of his or her own?
Oh that Josh Groban. Always willing to poke a bit of fun at himself, always leaving us with a song in our hearts. After his most recent turn helping Jimmy Kimmel eulogize himself in memoriam at the 2012 Emmys, and rather than return to his occasional 'Glee' guest spot, the piano crooner is setting his sights on a return to the final season of NBC's 'The Office!' Reprising his role as Andy Bernard's younger brother Walter Jr., fans are going to find something different about Groban's appearance this time however...
Last week on 'The Office,' we got a better sense of the new guys (one of who might be something of a date rapist), and the growing tension between Pam and Jim, as he covertly plans to get a new job.
"Roy's Wedding" was mostly a miss, so we're really hoping the show course-corrects and becomes awesome in the final stretch (this is the final season). So how does the latest episode stack up? Read on for our in-depth recap of "Andy's Ancestry."
