‘The Office’ is coming to an end!

To be honest, I was one of those people who came into The Office pretty late in the game, so by the time I started watching it, Pam had already had her baby and everyone was saying that the show should have ended with Pam and Jim’s wedding in season five. So that’s when I stopped watching it, which is for the best because at least this way it felt like the show went out on a really high note. Anyway, for those who kept watching long after that, bad news: the show is finally coming to an end, after nine seasons on the air. From HuffPo

“This year feels like the last chance to … make an artistic ending for the show. This will be the last season of The Office, and we’re planning a big exciting last season,” Daniels told EW. “All questions will be answered this year. We’re going to see who’s behind the documentary.” Robert Greenblatt, the Chairman of NBC Entertainment, reflected on the series’ end in a statement:

The Office is a classic, award-winning television comedy and all of us at NBC couldn’t be prouder to have produced and telecast the series as it heads into its ninth season. Greg Daniels, the cast, and crew have some terrific storylines planned for the final season. Fans are in for a treat. It’s always difficult to see these kinds of shows come to an end, but we are honoring the cast’s and producers’ desire to make this the final season.”

To be fair, the show had a great run, and to pack in nine seasons is really impressive. Hell, most shows barely make it through a second season, so to make it through nine while still holding up decently well for your age is a pretty impressive feat. That being said, here’s to hoping they end it off with a Christmas episode like the original British version did.
