'The Office' will end after its coming season, according to showrunner Greg Daniels.

“The Office” will end after this year, according to showrunner Greg Daniels.

Daniels said “all questions” will be resolved this year.

“This year feels like the last chance to… make an artistic ending for the show,” said Daniels, who ran the show from its beginning season to its fifth and is now returning for the ninth season. “This will be the last season of 'The Office,' and we’re planning a big exciting last season... We’re going to see who’s behind the documentary... 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.”

Star Steve Carell left during season 7 and several actors on the show had already become involved in other projects, including Rainn Wilson, who will be involved in a planned spin-off of the show, and Mindy Kaling, who will star in “The Mindy Project” which will air this fall.
