the office series finale

The well-known comedy series ends May 16 at 9/8c on NBC. The show premiered in March 2005, and has won numerous awards, including a 2006 Emmy for Outstanding Comedy series. It gained popularity thanks to the ensemble cast, which included legendary funnyman Steve Carell, who left the series in 2011. The relatability of the show comes from its real-life office situations. Season 9 saw two new employees being hired, as well as anticipation over the documentary that’s created about the workers. According to executive producer Greg Daniels in an interview with Colorado’s 9News, someone will be fired in the finale. And if people are able to get over Carell’s refusal to appear in the last episode, then this series finale is one to watch.
