Steve-Carrell-Most-Likely-Wont-Return-for-THE-OFFICE-Series-Finale-20130106

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt addressed the rumors of Steve Carell's potential return for THE OFFICE's upcoming series finale at the Televsion Critics Association press tour. And the news wasn't good.

"I'm hopeful but I don't think he will be back," Greenblatt said on Sunday.

The site reports that he went on to say, "[Carell] left in the way that he wanted that character to leave, and I think he and Greg [Daniels] have talked about it and I don't think he'll be back. There's maybe a little Hail Mary pass on a cameo, but I think the decision is that it'll go out without him rather than compromising his exit."

As of today, a date has not been set for the finale.

From Deedle-Dee Productions, Reveille and Universal Television, the multi-award-winning comedy series "The Office" presents a hilarious documentary-style look at the humorous, and sometimes poignant, foolishness that plagues the 9-to-5 world. Based on the award-winning BBC hit, "The Office" is a fly-on-the-wall "docu-reality" parody of modern American office life that delves into the lives of the workers at Dunder Mifflin, a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

In the series, Andy Bernard (Ed Helms, "The Hangover"), the preppy salesman and die-hard Cornell alumni whose endless and unique musical talents keep The Office entertained, is the new Dunder Mifflin Scranton manager.

Reporting to Andy are the loyal, and often times unmotivated, staff including sales rep Jim Halpert (John Krasinski, "Away We Go," "It's Complicated") who shares his working space with Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson, "The Rocker"), the arrogant assistant to the regional manager whose responsibilities have expanded as he became the new owner of The Office building. Pam Beesly Halpert (Jenna Fischer, "Walk Hard," "Blades of Glory") is The Office receptionist-turned-office administrator whose office romance with Jim led to marriage and the birth of their daughter, Cece and son Phillip. A surprising bromance has also formed between Andy and the ambitious distribution coordinator, Darryl Philbin (Craig Robinson, "Hot Tub Time Machine"), who moved his office from The Warehouse to the main building.
