The final episode of The Office will be super-sized for fans.
NBC announced today that the May 16 series finale will air from 9-10:15 p.m. An original of Hannibal will follow from 10:15-11 p.m. with limited interruption.
Here’s the official logline for the finale: Months after the airing of the documentary, the workers of Dunder Mifflin, past and present, gather for a wedding and a final round of interviews. Mysteries are solved, hatchets are buried, pranks are prunked. Guest stars include Mindy Kaling, BJ Novak, Rachael Harris, Dakota Johnson, Joan Cusack, Ed Begley Jr., Malcolm Barrett, Matt Jones, Andy Buckley, Mike Schur and Bobby Ray Shafer.
Rumors have been swirling that former Office star Steve Carell, who led the Dunder Mifflin crew as General Manager Michael Scott for seven seasons, may return for the finale. During a recent conference call with reporters, show creator Greg Daniels said “I think Steve felt, and I agree, that the ‘Goodbye, Michael’ episode was his goodbye and he didn’t want to overshadow the ending that all the other characters deserved.”
