Steve Carell's Office Farewell Just Got Bigger
The Peacock announced that the comedy’s April 28 episode — Carell’s last as Michael Scott — will air from 9-9:50 pm. Additionally, Parks and Recreation will follow with an extended episode of its own from 9:50-10:30 pm. A regular 30-minute 30 Rock will close out the night.
The countdown to Carell’s big goodbye continues this week with the arrival of Will Ferrell as Michael’s temporary replacement. Although it’s unclear who will ultimately take over Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch, news that Ray Romano, James Spader, Will Arnett and Catherine Tate will guest star in the season has finale intensified speculation that NBC might go with an outside candidate.
