It’s the end of an era for the staff of Dunder-Mifflin as they will no longer be going back to their office next year.
The Office is coming to an end after nine seasons, executive producer Greg Daniels confirmed via a conference call Tuesday. The Emmy-winning comedy series will air its final episode May 2013.
"This year feels like the last chance to … make an artistic ending for the show," Daniels said.
The popular mockumentary is based on the British comedy with the same moniker starring Ricky Gervais, the U.S. office premiered in 2005 and starred Steve Carell as the dumbfounded office manager of the company Dunder-Mifflin’s Scranton, Penn. branch.
The series also helped launched the careers of John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, BJ Novak, Mindy Kalling and Ed Helms who costarred in the NBC hit.
"All questions will be answered this year," Daniels said. "We're going to see who is behind the documentary. [Fans] will pleased and excited by what we have planned for them this year.”
