It's almost time to say goodbye to the gang at Dunder Mifflin. The ninth season of The Office, which gets under way next month, will be the last, reports Entertainment Weekly. "All questions will be answered this year," says Greg Daniels, who served as the show's head creative honcho for seasons 1 to 5 and is returning for the final one. Though still one of NBC's top shows, The Office stumbled in the ratings somewhat last year after the departure of Steve Carell character Michael Scott. Daniels doesn't give up many details of what's ahead, but click through to the EW link or to the Hollywood Reporter if you're fearless about even the hint of spoilers. (More The Office stories.)
