Steve Carell Leaves 'The Office' After Last Day Of Filming
Michael Scott, exit stage right.
Steve Carell is officially no longer an employee of Dunder Mifflin after completing his last day of shooting on "The Office," the sitcom he starred in for seven legendary seasons. Co-star (and show sidekick) Rainn Wilson broke the news to the world when he tweeted, "Steve Carell's last day on 'The Office.' And the angels of comedy wept... #saddestdayever."
Carell announced in June that he would be leaving the series, and since July, when the the series' producers said that that the show would go on, the public has wondered since who will replace his awkward but lovable Michael Scott as boss.
Carell is actually leaving the series with a few episodes to go in the season, to better break in the new boss, though the public still doesn't know who it will be. Carell's friend Will Ferrell will make a four episode guest appearance through the end of the season, though, unfortunately, he won't be the permanent replacement.
Series executive producer Ricky Gervais, who created the original "The Office" show in England, has suggested that star Will Arnett should join the show, though he never directly said as Carell's replacement.
