Good-Bye FOREVER, Michael Scott! Steve Carell NOT Returning For The Office Series Finale!

We really did think this would work out, but we guess they just couldn't make the stars align.

When it was announced that The Office would be ending after this year's ninth season, series creator and current showrunner Greg Daniels, along with many current castmembers, expressed his hope that Steve Carell would once again re-appear as the NBC comedy's original protagonist, Michael Scott, to bid properly bid farewell to the role that propelled him into super-stadom!

However, we're very sad to reveal that during the Television Critics Association panel yesterday, NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt announced that there was next-to-NO chance that Carell would be back in any capacity.

He explained:

“We’re hopeful but I don’t think (Carell) will. He left in the way he wanted to leave, and he and Greg talked about it, and I don’t think he will. There’s maybe a little Hail Mary pass on a cameo, but I think the decision would be compromising his schedule.”

Well. Consider our hearts absolutely crushed.

Despite Catherine Tate being able to finally fill the void of HIGHlarity the show lost when he left toward the end of the seventh season, we think everyone can agree that The Office just hasn't been the same without him.

And we just know how much one final "That's what she said!" from Michael would have just meant so much to the fans who have continued to tune in after all these years.

Guess we'll just have to just keep on praying for that Hail Mary pass!

Now excuse us.

We're going to go watch the "Goodbye, Michael" episodes and sob into our Prison Mike du-rag.

What do U think?? Are U bummed to hear Steve Carell won't be back to say good-bye to The Office with his former castmates?

    I like Steve Carrell, seems like a nice guy but it looks bad on him for not taking time out to make a cameo on a show that really catapulted his fame and by all accounts was good to him.

    Hopefully Steve doesn't turn into another Katherine Heigl. Getting a few movies during your successful run on a TV show, leaving the show in hopes of a film career and that film career not going as well as you thought it would.
