SPOILER ALERT!!! 'NOUGH SAID!
Last night was the beginning of the end of Michael Scott. After getting engaged to his longtime love Holly, Michael announced to all his employees of Dundler Mifflin that he will be leaving Scranton to move to Colorado to be with her.
So, there it is. The setup for rest of the season. Now, the search begins for Steve Carrell's replacement.
But perhaps someone has already been chosen!!!
Following the credits, a teaser clip was shown of Will Ferrell standing in a hallway outside Michael Scott's office with outstretched arms to Steve, anticipating a hug. It's then that the announcer says with a mischievous tone:
"Well, well, well, look who's going to be the new boss."
Gasp! Trick…or treat?! Has the riddle finally been solved? Will it really be Will that carries on the torch of title World's Best Boss?!
No one is saying. Other than that teasing announcer, everyone is staying mum. But here is what we know:
In the past, Universal has insisted that Will isn't slated to be a permanent member of the cast. So far, he is only scheduled for a multi-episode arc. So, that's a strike against the theory.
But more importantly, most sources (including us) feel that the new boss is most likely going to be either Will Arnett or Ricky Gervais, as both were spotted on set filming on Steve's final episode.
So…we still don't know and now we'll have to wait until the end of April to figure it out. Boo! This keeping us in suspense thing is getting really old.
Don't U agree?
