We are less than a month away from the final new episode of NBC's The Office ever.
While the show has struggled since Michael Scott left, it is still a little sad to see what was once the best comedy on television (my opinion) leave us.
NBC wants to send the show out with a bang, it seems. The network has announced that Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak will be appearing in the final hour long episode. They had served as cast members and writers for the show before departing.
They are not the only special appearances that evening, however. NBC has announced that Rachael Harris, Dakota Johnson, Joan Cusack, Ed Begley Jr., Malcolm Barrett, Matt Jones, Andy Buckley, Mike Schur and Bobby Ray Shafer.
"Months after the airing of the documentary, the workers of Dunder Mifflin, past and present, gather for a wedding and a final round of interviews," is what NBC's preview reads. "Mysteries are solved, hatchets are buried, pranks are prunked."
At this time, it is not known if Steve Carrell (who played Scott) will be appearing. In interviews, he has seemed largely uninterested in returning, but obviously that could just be a diversion. I am torn – his departure was handle really well by the show, but given all his dreams of stardom, shouldn’t he be there to watch the documentary with his former subordinates/friends?
