Michael Scott’s resignation has been accepted. After a series of statements by The Office star Steve Carell during the past couple of months that he will be leaving the NBC comedy series when his contract is up at the end of next season, the network confirmed his departure yesterday through primetime entertainment president Angela Bromstad. “Not to diminish the departure of Steve, because that will impact the show, but we have tremendous faith in the writers and actors to keep it alive,” she told the AP. Bromstad left open the possibility for Carell to do future guest appearances on The Office.
