The The Office series finale was already given a super-sized one-hour episode so fans could say goodbye to the employees of Dunder-Mifflin the right way, and now fans can hold onto the show just a little longer, as NBC has announced that the final episode of The Office has just been extended by 15 minutes, with Hannibal following after the finale with limited commercial interruption.

The series finale has been buzzed about quite a bit lately after the synopsis of the episode explained, “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 once series regulars and writers B.J. Novak (Ryan) and Mindy Kaling (Kelly), along with new faces like Rachael Harris, Dakota Johnson, Joan Cusack, Ed Begley Jr., Malcolm Barrett, Matt Jones, Andy Buckley, Mike Schur and Bobby Ray Shafer. Just recently it was confirmed that Steve Carell would have some kind of role in the finale, but rather than being a big part, he would only have a small cameo. That kind of dashed our hopes of seeing Michael Scott and Holly Flax (Amy Ryan) tie the knot for the finale, but anything can happen.

As of now, we’re expecting the aforementioned wedding to likely be that of Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Angela (Angela Kinsey), which should make one of those pranks being “prunked” pretty great – especially coming from Jim Halpert (John Krasinski). But maybe this last 15 minutes means we’ll get a little bit more Carell in the finale?

It would be quite a treat for fans, and would make the send-off even sweeter. Either way, it’s going to be a bittersweet farewell to Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Ed Helms, Leslie David Baker, Brian Baumgartner, Kate Flannery, Angela Kinsey, Oscar Nuñez, Phyllis Smith, Paul Lieberstein, Creed Bratton and Craig Robinson. More recent cast members like Catherine Tate, Ellie Kemper, Clark Duke, and Jake Lacy also deserve some love, but the rest of the squad has been at Dunder-Mifflin for many years.

  1. Steve Carell’s in, count me in.

    • Whose wedding? Does this mean Michael and Holly are getting married? Unless I am forgetting a marriage plot. Maybe the senator and his new man?

      • Having Angela and Dwight get married would be the dumbest ending ever and would be cheap and far to soon given their recent turmoil. Michael and Holly just makes more sense.

        • I disagree. Even while she was with the senator, you could still tell there was something still there, especially when she had the baby. They’ve always had an under the surface sort of thing going, maybe not as overt as Jim and Pam were, but it’s been there.

        • I think Dwight and Angela getting married would be the perfect ending.
          The synopsis says the wedding is “months” after the documentary aired so plenty could happen during that time. I’m also assuming the wedding takes place in Scranton so I doubt Michael and Holly would get married there when they live across the country.

  2. It shouldn’t be Michael and Holly. They got engaged over two years ago and flew most of the way across the country; it’s unlikely that they didn’t get married relatively quickly.

  3. Will I be watching? Yes. Been watching since day one. I’m in.

  4. All over this like a newly married Cruise on a Winfrey sofa

  5. No thanks. I never understood the show, and I have no idea what the documentary they’re shooting is even for.

    • Why even read and comment on this article then?

    • I don’t either. I guess the name of the show could be a hint but…

  6. Not only will I be watching but when it’s over I’ll probably shed a tear. :(

  7. I loved the first few seasons, but they should’ve ended this show a couple of years back. It went from one great show into into TWO shows that suck (including the Schrute debacle)!

  8. I’m all in… even though this season has been kinda painful I hope it ends with a bang.
