Michael Scott NOT Returning For ‘The Office’ Finale
Steve Carrell’s Michael Scott was the glue tha held The Office together. The show that was adapted for the U.S by Greg Daniels was once a great NBC comedy powerhouse. But has bounced around in quality more than Jan Levinson Gould’s fake breasts since Carrell left the show during it’s seventh season.
Everyone had hoped Michael Scott would return for the The Office series finale but it looks like it’s a no go. While promoting his new film The Way Way Back at Sundance, Access Hollywood asked Carrell about a possible return.
Top Ten Michael Scott Quotes From ‘The Office’
Carrell said, “I just didn’t think it was right for the character, because that character had had an arch within the story and kind of grew and sort of evolved past the idea of the documentary,” He also said. “I’m really good friends with everybody on the cast and with Greg Daniels and I want to go back to say, ‘Hi,’ certainly, before it all ends, but I just thought, in terms of the character, it didn’t make sense.”
So Carrell is definitely a no. But there’s no word if other Office veterans like Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling) or Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak) will return for The Office finale that will air sometime in May.
