The Of­fice to close its doors

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SATURDAY EXTRA -

Amer­i­can ver­sion of The Of­fice closes down next year. Pro­ducer Greg Daniels says the NBC com­edy will con­clude busi­ness at Dun­der Mif­flin af­ter the up­com­ing ninth sea­son. He said the fi­nal year will be ex­cit­ing and mem­o­rable and will take cre­ative chances. And it will re­veal who’s been mak­ing the mock doc­u­men­tary that has pro­vided the show with its for­mat. ‘‘I think end­ings can be very pow­er­ful,’’ Daniels says. Will for­mer re­gional man­ager Michael Scott re­turn as a guest? Daniels says he hopes Steve Carell will reprise his role as the so­cially in­ept boss, but he isn’t count­ing on it. Carell left in 2011. The Of­fice was adapted from its British pre­de­ces­sor and pre­miered on the US net­work NBC in March 2005. While its rat­ings have slipped, it’s still NBC’s high­est-rated scripted se­ries.

Com­ing 2013, Eleven.
