It’s the end of an era. Showrunner Greg Daniels has confirmed that The Office‘s upcoming 9th season will be its last.

After series-low ratings following Steve Carell’s departure, EW.com is reporting that showrunner Greg Daniels has confirmed that this season will indeed be the last for the folks at Dunder Mifflin.

Daniels had some very interesting comments regarding the final season, including a revelation of who is behind the documentary of the show (remember the show is styled as a “mockumentary” which has since become standard place in network television):

“This year feels like the last chance to … make an artistic ending for the show,” he said. “This will be the last season of The Office, and we’re planning a big exciting last season … all questions will be answered this year. We’re going to see who’s behind the documentary.”

Daniels also says to expect a lot of surprises and that season 9 will focus a lot on Pam and Jim:

We will be doing more [character] arcs, and more drama in the Jim and Pam story line. We are planning some big surprises … I’m guessing the show will feel more like Dunder-Mifflin from before the Sabre merger [when former showrunner Paul Lieberstein took over].

It’s a bittersweet moment for The Office fans. The show has been around for so long. What are your thoughts about The Office finally saying goodbye?

    Although I’ve ignored the 8th season and will continue to do so with the 9th, it’s pretty sad. It’s such a big part of pop culture in America now and it is always sad to see something that makes such a huge impression go.

    Man a real end to an era, I’ll miss this show but it has slowly gone down hill as more and more people jumped ship. 

  • kburford

    it’s time. hopefully they can go out with a bang & be as good as the early seasons again. that would be nice.

  • Camken

    Really going to miss this show. 

  • Liderc

    It wasn’t the same without Steve Carell, wish they would have ended it with him.

  • Alex

    I hope they dont stir drama with capital letters for jim&pam and when The season ends they re still happy together

    I’m a fan of all The Office characters, not just Michael Scott. That’s why I enjoyed Season 8 alot, Yes It might not have been as good as some of the other seasons, It was still a great show! I’m sad to hear that my Childhood is ending… :(

    The Office had a good run. I’m always sad to see my favorite TV shows end, but I’m glad it’ll get a proper ending.

  • Emmalou

    They should have ended it when Michael left. That would have been a great season finale. Season 8 was really weak for me. 

    • Emmalou

      **series, not season :P

    Am I the only one who still loved last season? Yes it was different without Carell but it was still hilarious. He wasn’t the ONLY person on the show! Give it some credit! I feel like everyone loves to jump on the Carell-exiting bandwagon when really nothing else changed except that.

    • Mitch

      It’s not that season 8 was bad, it just had a whole different kind of feel that people aren’t used to. I personally didn’t care for the first half of season 8 but felt that it picked up some steam towards the end. But I disagree with your statement that “nothing else changed except that.” A lot changed. New manager(s), new CEO, new moralle around the office, etc.

      • Mitch

        Morale* whoops.

      • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

        Well of course, the dynamic of The Office slightly changed but the feel of the show didn’t.

    • Josh

      I still thought it was great but I don’t think Andy Bernard’s character is set up for a major role.  Maybe Season 3 & 4 Andy is but not Season 8.  I think we need more Gabe…he’s hilarious!

      I loved Season 8. It was still by far, one of the best shows on television. Still… Season 3 of The Office, will always be my favorite. 

  • Bigbootybatman

    This breaks my heart.

  • thatonegirl

    The picture for this article still brings so much joy to my heart and I stopped watching it at the end of season 6.

  • VideoKilledSeverusSnape

    Always loved the Office. It’s sad to see it’s going to end, but everything’s gonna have to end someday. I loved it with and without Michael and can’t wait to see how it will all unfold.

    Now I must go make a tribute for it and upload it on Youtube. :)

  • VideoKilledSeverusSnape

    When the series ends of course. :)

    AND 30 Rock?!? I can’t handle this.

    I love this show but I am happy to see it end instead of dragging it out for a long time and probably not give it a real ending.

    i personally havent liked the office very much at all since steve carell left, and in a way i am kind of happy that they are just ending it, but as a fan since season 3 or 4, i will be sad to see it go

  • Katie M

     I know it hasn’t been as good since Steve left, but I really love all those characters, so it’s going to be very strange when it ends for good. But, I am glad the execs are being intelligent and ending it intentionally, rather than dragging it on till NBC shoots it in the head to end its misery and we all hate it.

    I love it but it is time… Me and my friends have already begun planning an Office Finale party. I hope Steve Carell is in the last episode

  • micheal scott

      They mentioned him in the first episode, of season 8. Pam says something like: “Little Michael Scott!” When referring to her being Pregnant.
