Date set for Carell's Office exit
Steve Carell will make his final appearance on the US version of The Office on April 28, NBC has confirmed.
And the actor's farewell episode on the popular comedy will be super-sized, the network announced, airing over an extended 50 minutes.
Steve, who plays inept branch manager Michael Scott, announced last year that this would be his last season on the series, which premiered in 2005.
Since first appearing in the hit show, Carell has carved out a successful big screen career, including roles in Get Smart and Date Night, and voicing animation such as Despicable Me and Horton Hears A Who!
NBC has made no announcement about who might fill the gap in the cast, which also includes John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer.
