Greg Daniels has decided to return as a showrunner for Season 9. This will be the last season of The Office. “As we head into the home stretch, we have a lot of exciting things I’ve been wanting to do since season two,” Daniel told reporters. “The end should be pretty cool.”

“At some point you have a choice: to always tell the beginnings of stories and the middles or to allow a story to end and I think endgings can be very powerful and meaningful pieces of the story,” said Daniels, who shared that NBC entertainment president Bob Greenblatt was supportive of the season nine plan. “If we didn’t let it end this year, I don’t know if we would have been able to tell the endings for so many character that I really want to know the endings for.”

With The Office gone NBC may have a bit less money in their pockets as they change up their Thursday nights. “They may also be crying over lost advertising,” Daniels joked. “Hopefully they’ll have other things that are working by the end of the year.”

“The real heart of the show are these arcs that allow these characters to have ongoing stories. It’s all going to be set up in the premiere,” he said. “There’s so much to pay off from nine seasons, so many great characters that my biggest concern is just tacking in these great ideas that the writing staff has on the walls and making sure we hit all of them or at least squeeze as many into the ending.”
