NBC will air a special one-hour The Office retrospective on Thursday, May 16, directly before the sitcom concludes its nine-season run with its one-hour series finale. NBC News is producing the special, which will include interviews with executive producers Greg Daniels, Paul Lieberstein, and Ben Silverman, as well as actors John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling, Ed Helms, Angela Kinsey, Craig Robinson, Oscar Nunez and B.J. Novak. (Steve Carell was not available to sit for a farewell interview.)

In addition, the program will include footage of early actor auditions — Adam Scott could’ve been Jim, people! — relive favorite moments, and give a behind-the-scenes tour of the finale.
