Say it ain’t so. Sadly, it has been confirmed that Carell’s character, Michael Scott will be leaving the show for good after the seventh season. Humble as he is, Carell doesn’t even think his exit is going to be a big deal!(click more to read on)
“I didn’t see it as a huge thing and I certainly didn’t anticipate any sort of hubbub over it. I’m just not going to extend my contract, but I didn’t see it as a huge deal. And the show is great, and the ensemble is so strong, and the writers are great, so it’s just one part of that ensemble drifting off. They’ve incorporated so many new characters and so many new, great storylines that I have no doubt it’ll continue as strong if not stronger than ever.” said Carell. Best of luck to you Steve and we’re interested to see where the show goes from here!
