According to author Andy Greene's new book The Office: the untold story of the best sitcom in the 2000s (via Collider), NBC actually forced Carell out of The office. Apparently, after Carell mentioned in a BBC interview that season 7 could be the last, NBC did not react to him saying he was considering leaving the series. Boom operator and sound mixer Brian Wittle explained that this upset Carell, making it a little easier to leave after NBC decided not to renew his contract. Kim Ferry, stylist for The office, summed up what happened between NBC and Carell, which can be read in the quote below:
"I didn't want to leave the program. He had told the network that he was going to sign for a couple more years. He was willing to do it and his agent was willing to do it. But for some reason, they didn't contact him. I don't know if it was a chicken game or what … He planned to stay on the show "…".It's just amazing how that happened. And I feel bad because I think a lot of people think they left the show on their own merit and that's not entirely true. I'm telling you I was there. I was there. I really wanted to stay. And he devastated us all because he was the heart of our show. ”
With the popularity of The officeThere has been news that the series will return for a revival after being off the air for seven years.
