Following months of hopes, dreams, and speculation, we’re learning today once and for all that The Office series finale will indeed include a return by Steve Carrell.

TV Line confirms with sources that Carrell will be making “a cameo [more] than a full-fledged guest appearance” on The Office season 9 finale which bows on May 16.

Over the weekend, Carrell made a surprise appearance at The Office series wrap party held in Scranton, Pennsylvania. A photo from his appearance can be seen below:

The Office's Steve Carrell appears at farewell event

“To be completely sincere, I miss the people. They’re really good friends. And the booze,” Carrell said at the farewell event held over the weekend.

“I miss them everyday,” he added, “and I know America’s going to miss them in two weeks.”

The Office fans had figured for some time that Carrell would be making an appearance of some sort given his importance to the first several seasons of the show.

Reports in recent weeks indicated that NBC had made an 11th hour attempt to get Carrell one final time. His rep went on to confirm that he was on the set for the show’s final shoot, but denied any involvement in the filming itself.

We’ll be sure to share a clip from Carrell’s The Office series finale cameo after the episode airs. We imagine NBC will remain mum to try and keep the surprise for as many people as possible.

Thanks, TV Line.

While we wait: How do you think Michael Scott will appear in The Office series finale?

    I love that all year all they have been saying is that “Nope Steve Carrell WILL NOT BE COMING BACK” and then like a week before the finale they are like “haha just kidding”

    This makes me very happy. I hope the group is going to attend Michael & Holly’s wedding, as some people have already speculated. But whatever happens, Michael Scott will be back on our screens and that will be EPIC!

      It’s going to be Dwight & Angela’s wedding. Michael & Holly got engaged over two years ago… That would be a pretty freaking long engagement!

    my prediction: as each of the character’s stories wrap up on the in-show documentary, michael will be briefly seen sitting at home, watching all his former co-workers have their “happy endings” and he will be satisfied. END SERIES.

    OMG I’m gonna cry! It’s going to be so emotional and seeing Micheal Scott one last time will make it more so! I will miss this show! :(

  • Scott

    Yeah… Gonna need an official source. This is all just conjecture at this point.

  • Mike
