The actor says that this season, his seventh, will be his last but the show will go on!

Steve Carell has finally confirmed after much speculation that after seven seasons on NBC’s The Office he will be leaving the show this coming May. “I just think it’s time,” the funny man told E! Online. “I want to fulfill my contract. When I first signed on I had a contract for seven seasons, and this coming year is my seventh. I just thought it was time for my character to go.” Say it ain’t so Steve!

Steve went on to say, “It doesn’t certainly mean the end of the show. I think it’s just a dynamic change to the show, which could be a good thing, actually. Add some new life and some new energy…I see it as a positive in general for the show.”

With his recent successes in feature films, such as Date Night with Tina Fey this comes as little surprise, but who will replace him on The Office? Could one of the current cast members like Ed Helms, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, B.J. Novak, Mindy Kaling, or Jenna Fischer be getting a promotion?

Even worse, can The Office survive without Steve Carell?

THE OFFICE without Steve Corell is not going to be a success. He is the main character who makes the show keep going. I doubt it , if the show is going to last without him.
Sadly, it may have to end with less viewers.
