BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Yes, there’s going to be a new boss on “The Office” after Steve Carell leaves at the end of the upcoming season. No, we don’t know who that will be.
And that will play a big part in the show in the coming months.
According to Angela Bromstad, president of Primetime Entertainment for NBC, both the network and the producers have known that Carell was planning to leave when his contract expires next spring. And they’ve been planning for it.
But there’s going to be some mystery about who will get the job. So don’t expect an answer until May 2011.
