The U.S. version of The Office comes to a close next, but there are murmurs that Steve Carell could return to the show to reprise his character Michael Scott. Is it true or just ballyhoo?
TV Line and plenty of other sites are reporting the word that Steve Carell will be making a comeback on the May 16 finale of the popular NBC sitcom, but executive producer Greg Daniels is dismissive. He told the media recently, "I think Steve felt, and I agree, that the 'Goodbye, Michael' episode was his goodbye and he didn't want to overshadow the ending that all the other characters deserved."
It seems that the site and NBC executives are pulling our legs, as sources are claiming that Carell will make his comeback on the show as a guest appearance rather than a starring role.
As speculation continues to grow, Steve, himself, has yet to approach the subject on his official Twitter account. And while his return may not be written in ink, sources say that former The Office cast members Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak will be returning to show for the last time when it all comes to an end on May 16.
