Will Michael Scott appear in The Office series finale?

View Comments(0)


The series finale of "The Office" airs tonight after nine seasons and all I want is for Michael Scott to return. Listen, I stuck with the show after he departed. I stuck with the show through endless Jim/Pam will-they-won't-they moments. I stuck with the show when Robert California drove me totally crazy. (Sorry, Robert California fans.) And now all I ask is for Michael Scott to come back one more time to bid the series adieu.

But everyone has been saying it's not going to happen. In an effort to quell any disappointment (and Hulk-like rage) I may feel if that turns out to be true, I keep trying to nonchalantly tell myself he won't show up. No big deal, I think, who needs him anyway?

Me, that's who, because I really, really, really want him to be on tonight's show. It won't feel like a final goodbye without him! So I've spent the last few weeks arguing with myself over whether Steve Carell will make an appearance. Will he? Won't he? Well...

Reasons Michael Scott WILL NOT return

Execs have denied Michael Scott will be in the finale. The cast, writers, and producers have been firm about this. They've maintained this for months, possibly longer, and urged us all not to count on it happening. NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt said "[T]he decision would be compromising his schedule."
