This has been a super busy week for TV news, with all the networks announcing their new fall shows and schedules. While there’s a bunch of stuff that looks great, there’s also quite a few other new shows that I can’t believe they thought were better than the stuff they decided not to renew. And speaking of things ending—there are at least eight shows having season/series finales tonight, so here’s what we recommend you check out tonight…
After 9 seasons, the US version of The Office finally comes to an end. It’s pretty amazing that the show has lasted this long, seing as the original UK show only ran for a total of 15 episodes! I loved last week’s episode—it was a return to that great mix of fun and heartwarming drama of the early years of the show. Jim assured Pam that he didn’t regret his choice of staying with her in Scranton, Dwight proposed to Angela, and Angela revealed that Dwight was actually the father of her baby.
Tonight, it all comes to an end with Dwight and Angela’s wedding and a look at the characters’ lives once the documentary has aired. So who will return—and will Michael Scott make an appearance? I would think you couldn’t have a finale of this show without having him back (despite the producers saying he wouldn’t be)! I can’t wait to see how it all comes to a close on tonight’s super-sized 75-minute episode. Plus, I’m also really looking forward to re-living the past nine years with the hour-long retrospective special that airs before the finale.
Tonight’s special, “The Office Retrospective,” features interviews with the show’s writers, producers, and actors, including John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling, and Paul Lieberstein. Also: a look inside the writers’ room; actor auditions; and favorite moments.
Then, on “Finale,” past and present staffers gather for a wedding and their closing interview sessions in the series finale. Appearing: Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, Joan Cusack, Ed Begley Jr., Rachael Harris, Dakota Johnson, Andy Buckley, and Malcolm Barrett.
Tonight’s special starts at 8/7c on NBC, followed by the 75-minute series finale at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Hannibal, Giving You the Business, Men at Work, and Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous.
