It was recently announced that The Office’s upcoming ninth season will be its last. While the show remains one of NBC’s few hits, critics agree that it’s floundered creatively since Steve Carell’s exit. But there’s good news for fans of the show with original showrunner Greg Daniels promising a satisfying final season.
“This year feels like the last chance to really go out together and make an artistic ending for the show that pays off a lot of the stuff that matters most to fans,” Daniels told Entertainment Weekly. “Now that we know we have an end date we can blow things up and take some chances and it will be very freeing, creatively.”
The new season premieres Sept. 20, and until we can see if it is indeed a return to form, here’s an 18-minute compilation of bloopers from seasons 2-7 that will help to remember the glory days.
