It’s almost a sure bet that Mindy Kaling will be returning to the Office to say her goodbyes in the show’s finale. In fact, chances are she’ll return for more than one episode despite being in production for her own show, The Mindy Project, reports Hollywood.com.
“Mindy and B.J. should be in the finale,” show runner Greg Daniels said. “We’re talking about possibly another episode, although Mindy’s in production on her show.” As show runner, Daniels is in charge of the day to day operation of the Office, so he’s in a position to know if Kaling will return.
Kaling herself has been quoted as saying she would like to make it happen and will do what it takes to do so.
Surprisingly, Steve Carrell will not be returning. He feels his farewell episode last year was his goodbye.
Said Daniels, “There’s still a lot of good things we have planned for the rest of the goodbyes,” Daniels said.
