Mark your calendar now if you’re a fan of NBC’s The Office. The peacock network has announced that the long-running sitcom’s last episode will air on May 16th.
The series finale will be the show’s 200th episode and will run for one hour, starting at 9pm. I expect that NBC will run a retrospective of some kind in the 8pm hour but they haven’t announced one yet.
Here are some specifics about the last episode:
