The ending of The Office tonight created a huge buzz online, because Will Ferrell showed up as Steve Carell’s replacement at the very end of the tonight’s episode.
NBC says that Will Ferrell’s time on The Office is only a four-episode gig wrapped around Steve Carell’s April 28 final episode. On May 12, Ferrell’s character will leave and then for the season finale, enter Will Arnett and Ricky Gervais! The finale of The Office is May 19.
Entertainment blog Zap2It speculates about Will Arnett as the replacement for Steve Carell, “Gervais’ prior endorsement of Arnett — suggests to us that Arnett could be under consideration to be the new boss next season. We know he could easily play a Michael Scott-like buffoon.”
