In a BBC Radio interview with Steve Carell and Tina Fey about their new movie Date Night, the conversation briefly turned to NBC's The Office. Carell was asked "How long will you stay with The Office for? How many more series (that's British speak for "seasons")? How long does your contract run?"
"Contract through next season," Carell answered. "And will you stay after that?" the interviewer asked. "I don't think so," Carell said. "That will probably be my last year."
NBC has yet to comment on this statment as Carell's words now raise the question: "If Carell leaves the show, will The Office end?"
