Amy Ryan Returns To <i>The Office</i>

It's Steve Carell's last season on The Office, so surely Amy Ryan can't be too far behind, right? Turns out she's not far behind at all, as Ryan has booked a return trip to Dunder-Mifflin's Scranton branch for eight new episodes in the coming seventh season, Zap2It reports.

Paul Lieberstein, the writer and executive producer who also plays Toby on the show, told the website that Ryan's return was first teased in last season's finale, when Michael Scott (Carell) implored Sabre CEO Jo (Kathy Bates) to bring Holly Flax (Ryan) back to the Scranton branch. Although Michael's wish is granted, Lieberstein said that "Holly is not happy at all about coming back to Scranton," thanks to the life she's forged with new boyfriend A.J. But as this is the final season for Carell, things should hopefully work out between Michael and his true love.

Head on over to Zap2It for more details on the coming season.
