'The Office' to bid farewell to Steve Carell on April 28

Get ready to fill your World’s Best Boss mug with tears on April 28, because that’s the date of Steve Carell’s last episode on The Office. Carell’s misfit manager Michael Scott is departing Dunder Mifflin three weeks before the NBC comedy’s hourlong season finale on May 19. Will Ferrell will guest star as Michael’s replacement for several episodes beginning in April. Carell—who has garnered five Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe trophy in the role—filmed his last scenes for the show on March 4.
