Steve Carell ‘exits’ The Office

In a day where we’ve already had one big time television personality announce their retirement, it appears that the hit show The Office, on NBC will be looking for replacements.

In a report originally appearing on Entertainment Weekly, Steve Carell reaffirmed his desire to leave The Office and his role as Michael Scott at the end of the upcoming seventh season. “I think [season] 7 will be my last year,” he Entertainment Weekly us over the weekend at the premiere of his new animated flick, Despicable Me. “I want to fulfill my contract. I think it’s a good time to move on.”

Asked if there’s anything that could change his mind, Carell said, “No. I just want to spend more time with my family.”

Back in April, Carell made headlines when he announced in a BBC radio interview that next season “would probably” be his last on The Office. NBC entertainment chairman Jeff Gaspin later told reporters that Office producers were “preparing in the event [Carell] chooses to move on.”
