Fall TV Preview

First Look: The Office Final Season Poster!

Robert California may have ridden off into the gymnast-filled, Eastern European sunset, but the official key art from The Office’s upcoming final season could be proof that the Dunder Mifflin power struggle continues.

Take a close look at the poster below and let us know who you think is winning the chess game. (Our bet is on Stanley, who’s obliviously completing his crossword in the back row. Good strategists know how to bide their time.)

However, take care not to read too much into the image (which was shot a while back but never released publicly). Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak are depicted in hilarious fashion, but they’re still only showing up in limited episodes during the sitcom’s final season. And the same could be true of Rainn Wilson, if NBC buys The Farm. In addition, Catherine Tate’s Nellie is nowhere to be seen, but she’s definitely a workplace fixture in the season ahead.

Hit the comments and let us know what you think the shot could mean for The Office, which returns to NBC on Thursday, Sept. 20 at 9/8c.

  • Funny, judging by their ratings, I’d say NBC already bought the farm. *rimshot*

  • Why’s Mindy there if she’s only in one episode? Not complaining just feel like its false advertising.

  • I think this is for a different show altogether.
    Also – I heard that Steve Carell is leaving the show – such a shame.
    Anyone ever watched a show called Grey’s Anatomy? It’s nice.

    • lol, what Hilda? Are you trapped in 2010? In that case, I have something I need to tell you. You might want to sit down…. It’s about Lexie….

      • Lexie died, and yes – Sloane will too.
        I’ve been watching from season 1 – just commenting it’s a nice show.
        What do you need to tell me, bitch?

        You’re damn rude. Get a LIFE.
