NEW YORK (AP) -- NBC is confirming April 28 as the date for Steve Carell's final appearance on "The Office." His farewell episode on the popular comedy will be supersized, the network announced Monday.
That night's long good-bye will air from 9 to 9:50 p.m. Eastern time, followed by an extended version of "Parks and Recreation" that concludes at 10:30 p.m. Eastern, NBC said.
Carell, who plays inept branch manager Michael Scott, announced last year that this would be his last season on the series, which premiered in 2005. NBC has made no announcement about who might fill the gap in the cast.
