Catherine Tate Is BACK On The Office As A Series Regular!

| Filed under: TV NewsSteve Carell

catherine tate the office season nine series regular

Thank goodness! They would have been STOOPID to not keep her around!

While many were disappointed with the sometimes-lackluster, post-Steve Carell eighth season of The Office, we were relieved when producers had enough sense to bring back Catherine Tate as the new special projects manager Nellie Bertram in a recurring role toward the end of the year!

And now, we've just gotten word that the comedienne has signed on to appear as a series regular when the NBC comedy returns for its ninth season in the fall!

YES! This means EVERYONE is back, except James Spader (whom we thought never really clicked anyway) and Mindy Kaling (whose new show is going to be AWESOME)!

We know not all the fans love her as much as we do, but then again, nobody particularly cared for Michael Scott at the beginning, and we think she has a lot of potential to bring some much-needed original flair back into the sitcom!

You've got this, gurl! We cannot WAIT to see what kind of shenanigans you get yourself into now that you're sticking around!

What do U think?? Are U looking forward to the return of Nellie Bertram?

    literally the worst character the show has ever seen she is not funny at all
    the first part of the season is so much better without her

    Completely agree with Linaynay. Didn't find her funny at all.

    Cleary Perez does not watch the Office or he would know that pretty much every Office fan cannot stand this character. The show was doing pretty good despite losing Steve until she showed it. Her character is TERRIBLE.

    Her character sucks. Like, there isn't enough time to salvage her like there was with Michael. And she was full on obnoxious when she tried to take Andy's job even though he was a pretty decent choice for manager. She was funny in Florida, but Nellie doesn't work as well in the actual office. And while Spader's Robert California wasn't necessary, he did do a great job of putting people in uncomfortable positions and confusing them.
    The only reason I can tolerate the Nellie character being around is that I genuinely love Catherine Tate because she was on Doctor Who and is a funny person.

    I watched Catherine Tait's show on BBC where she played various roles ranging from about age 16-80. It was fantastic and she is one of my all time favorite comedians.

    YES! I'm so glad, she's the best thing on the show.

    She's not very funny. She has had a few moments, but not that great. I am so glad Robert California is gone. He tried too hard to be funny. Yawn!

    I truly cannot stand the Nellie character. She is just obnoxious and it really annoyed me when she just took over Andy's spot as manager. I quit watching the show shortly after that. I will not watch next season if she is going to be on there full time.

    I really really do not like Catherine Tate on The Office! This seems to be a fairly strong consensus since the ratings have dropped through the floor since she came on the show…viewers were leaving in droves! I liked the uncomfortableness that was Robert California even though his character really wasn't necessary. It was fun watching James Spader even with a less than stellar character to portray…Catherine Tate as Nellie Bertram has been a chore to watch. Currently I am not happy with this addition to the show.

    they should've cancelled this show when Steve Carrel left. The show is horrible now and the Nellie character is annoying and painfully unfunny

  11. 11

    Ugh, I can't stand this woman. She was on Dr. Who and made it unwatchable.

    I will never watch The Office ever again because of this. I hate her and her character. Catherine Tate ruined The Office.

    Re: Sarah – i agree, i wasn't really a fan of robert california at first but the awkwardness he brings is just what they needed without michael to do it. it's just downright painful to watch nellie though

    Catherine Tate is the worst thing that has ever happened to The Office. It was still a good show without Steve Carell until she came along. I've been a huge fan of the show since '05, but I refuse to watch with her as a regular

  15. 15

    Ugh. My hubby and I have been fans since the beginning, but I cannot watch another second of her character. It is horrible. We enjoyed Robert California but she is just too obnoxious. I can't believe they made this decision.

    OMG, noooooooooo. I will not watch if this is true. Nellie makes me break my TV by throwing things at it. Arrrrrggggghhhh!!!!
