The Office will end its nine-season run with an hour-long episode — the show’s 200th! — on Thursday, May 16 at 9/8c, NBC announced Thursday.

No other details were provided, but one thing appears certain: Steve Carell will not be participating in it.

As TVLine reported last month, the comedy’s original boss nixed an offer to reprise his role as Michael Scott one last time.

“I just didn’t think it was right for the character, because that character had had an arc within the story and kind of grew and sort of evolved past the idea of the documentary,” he told Access Hollywood. “I’m really good friends with everybody on the cast and with [executive producer] Greg Daniels and I want to go back to say, ‘Hi,’ certainly, before it all ends. but I just thought, in terms of the character, it didn’t make sense.”

I don't know what it is about this show, but every time they introduce the possibility of a new couple, I want them to happen. Then after they're together I don't care about them. Jim and Pam, Erin and Andy, now Erin and the new guy, and even Pam and this guy. It's only on this show too.

But they won't go there anyway.

The chase is always more pleasurable than the fruition on TV shows.

The Office has the worst habit of ruining characters once they get in a relationship.

Jim and Pam being the most obvious example. Although, I loved Michael and Holly.

Did you feel that way when Nellie kissed Toby or when Oscar started seeing The (State) Senator?

I did. Maybe there's something wrong with me. It's only on this show though, I really do not care about couples on any other show. And it's only until they actually hook up
