NBC Confirms Steve Carell's Departure From The Office

Dunder Mifflin is about to undergo a serious regime change. Well, perhaps not so much serious as it is significant, as comedian Steve Carell is officially leaving The Office after this forthcoming seventh season, NBC confirms.

In an interview with the Associated Press, NBC primetime entertainment president Angela Bromstad confirmed the erstwhile Michael Scott's repeated insistence that this upcoming season will be his last alongside Dwight, Jim, Pam and the rest of the Dunder Mifflin family.

"Not to diminish the departure of Steve, because that will impact the show, but we have tremendous faith in the writers and actors to keep it alive," said Bromstad, who is leaving the possibility open for Carell to return to The Office in guest appearances.
