US 'Office' enters its final season


Award-winning TV comedy The Office will end its run on US television in 2013 after eight years on the air, executive producer Greg Daniels said.

Mr Daniels told reporters in a conference call that the ninth season, starting in September, would be the last for NBC’s mockumentary workplace comedy.

“This will be the last season of The Office and we are planning a very big, exciting last season,” Mr Daniels added.

The show’s ending follows the exit last year of star Steve Carell as office boss Michael Scott and a fall in audiences from about 8 million in 2008 to about four million this year.

The Office was adapted from the British series of the same name created by Ricky Gervais. – (Reuters)
