The Office is over, done. No, honestly, it is: here’s the proof. It’s completely finished. Its legacy will be as a show that came from very humble beginnings – a remake of a hit UK sitcom (The Office) that was aired as a mid-season replacement. In Us network television, beginnings don’t get much more humble than that. From there, however, the show became something much bigger, emerging and engulfing the shadow that it was created under – the shadow of the initially superior British sitcom – and eventually proving itself superior.
It is odd to compare the Us and UK versions of The Office, because aside from some first season plotlines, they are completely different. The Office Us (as it is known in the UK) found itself in its second season when it stopped trying to emulate the tone and pitch of the UK version. Sure, the first season had »

The series finale of "The Office" saw a lot of happy moments. Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) made a surprise return, Erin (Ellie Kemper) found her birth parents, and Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Angela (Angela Kinsey) finally tied the knot.
NBC also got something out of the deal: "The Office" series finale brought in approximately 5.4 million viewers on Thursday night, scoring a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demo.
Although once upon a time the series was averaging 9 million viewers, the "Office" finale saw season high ratings, with the Season 9 premiere bringing in only 2.1 million viewers.
Earlier this month, Brian Baumgartner (Kevin) told The Huffington Post that he thought the "Office" series finale was "the greatest episode of television" ever.
"I know that's a bold statement, but the reason I say that is because there was a plan for the end of the show for eight years," he continued. "Greg [Daniels] had an idea »

Following the series finale on NBC on Thursday night (read what happened on the last episode!), many of the show's stars took to Twitter to thank their fans and reflect back on their hit series.
Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute): "Grab your beet salads, reams of paper, bobbleheads, Jello molds & Kleenexes folks. It's time for the Office Finale!... Well, with The Office ending I guess I finally have time to work on my golf game. Thank you to the ...

Scranton left on a high note, with 5.4 million people tuning in to say goodbye, and achieving its best demo ratings since January 2012.

Best Boss Ever: Who are we kidding? We can't make it any farther without shouting: Michael Scott returns!

For anyone who’s stuck with The Office through thick and thin, fat years and lean years, the slow disintegration of Jan Levenson’s sanity and stern rule of Charles Miner and the misguided creepiness of Robert California — or even those who tuned in after a long break just to see how everything turned out — last night’s 75-minute-long finale was pretty much perfect.
Basically everybody got what they wanted: Dwight and Angela wed in appropriately weird Schrute fashion. Andy revealed that he’d moved back to Ithaca to work at his beloved alma mater (Cornell — ever heard of it? »

"The Office" ended its eight-year run on Thursday night, in a cute finale that saw the wedding of a fan favorite couple, the return of Michael Scott and a perfect sendoff for the rest of the Dunder Mifflin crew.So, how'd it all end? See our favorite moments from the series finale below. 1.) Michael Scott is back! Steve Carell returned for the show's final episode, staying to the sidelines but still packing an emotional punch. The former Dunder Mifflin boss returned for Dwight Schrute's wedding -- popping up to help Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) with the "Best Prank Ever."It was sweet to see him interact with his former coworkers. And while Holly (Amy Ryan) didn't come with him, we learned the couple now have a couple kids of their own and Michael's a very proud papa -- so proud he needs two phones because he's taken so many photos of them. »

The series finale of The Office took up an hour and 15 minutes of NBC's prime-time schedule Thursday night. The last quarter-hour had a special sentimental magic, as we got parting moments with each of the characters at the Dunder Mifflin paper company of Scranton, Pa. The rest you could have fed into a shredder. After a season that carefully worked out significant narrative strands - the ultimately inevitable ascension to manager of the insufferable Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), the unexpectedly tender travails in the marriage of Jim and Pam (John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer) - this episode was poorly conceived and clumsily structured. »

NBC gave up nearly its entire Thursday night lineup to say goodbye to "The Office." Prior to the 75-minute series finale at 9 p.m. Et, the network aired an our long special, "The Office Retrospective." The special looked back at nine years of comedy, with interviews throughout from the cast and creators. It was a fun and insightful look inside a comedy that was truly groundbreaking when it premiered in 2005.
Jenna Fischer addressed one of the things that made "The Office" unique. All those verbal "ums" and "ahs," as well as the unique mockumentary camera work was much more planned than it appeared on-screen.
"We have handheld cameras that are moving and we don’t have marks on the ground," she explained. "We plan all of that out beforehand -- everyone just works very very hard to make it look like it’s done on the fly." Even the looks »

New York — That's a wrap!
Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. lives on, but "The Office" has closed shop.
The NBC workplace comedy, set at the fictional company's Scranton, Pa., branch, aired its finale Thursday to end an eight-year run.
As expected, office manager Dwight wed tempestuous co-worker Angela, with whom he previously shared a secret affair. He had abruptly proposed to her on last week's episode.
And as a welcome surprise, former manager Michael Scott was back to serve as Dwight's best man.
It was an answered prayer not only for Dwight (who greeted him with a choked-up "I can't believe you came"), but also for viewers who were hoping that Michael might make a surprise visit in the person of Steve Carell. NBC had stayed mum on whether Carell, the star of "The Office" until his departure two seasons ago, would be in the finale or not.

Diane Haithman is a contributor to Deadline. Spoiler Alert! Update: Steve Carell reprised his role as former Dunder Mifflin manager Michael Scott after all — appearing about 45 minutes into The Office finale to be Dwight’s “bestest mensch” (read: best man) at his wedding to Angela. After Michael unexpectedly appears, Dwight (Rainn Wilson) says: “Michael, I can’t believe you came.” His former boss replies: “That’s what she said.” Later in the episode, he tells the documentary crew: “I feel like my kids all grew up and married each other — it’s every parent’s dream.” Carell earned six Emmy noms for the role but never won. He left the series after its seventh season. Previously: No, Michael Scott is not going to turn up at Dunder Mifflin on Thursday. Really. Ken Kwapis swears to Deadline that longtime star Steve Carell does not appear in this week’s series finale of The Office. »

Plus, familiar faces — including one that rhymes with Shmichael Shcott — return for one last goodbye!
After eight years and nearly 200 episodes, the doors of Dunder Mifflin closed forever — to the fans, at least — during the May 16 series finale of The Office, and the big ending went down in the most appropriately weird setting I could have ever imagined: Dwight’s (Rainn Wilson) wedding to Angela (Angela Kinsey)!
The nutty nuptials doubled as an excuse to bring back some old faces — including Andy (Ed Helms), whose tearful audition on America’s Next Acapella Sensation had since turned him into a viral sensation.
But no return was more welcome — or highly anticipated — than that of Michael Scott (Steve Carell), who had some super-weird words to say to the camera about Dwight and Angela’s union:
“I feel like all my kids grew up, and then they married each other. It’s every parent’s dream! »

Of course we are talking about The Office's series finale, which gave us our last full day at work with NBC's beloved comedy and its adored stars, including Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer. We'll have a full (gushing) recap of the Dunder Mifflin gang's final outing later, but here are some quick highlight, including the return of Steve »

[Warning: Spoilers ahead for The Office series finale.] The Office is officially closed. Thursday's series finale saw the Dunder Mifflin gang back together one year after their PBS documentary aired. Wedding bells rang for Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Angela (Angela Kinsey), far-flung guests returned and Pam (Jenna Fischer) made a big move for Jim (John Krasinski).
