You might recall this a while back. Executive producer Greg Daniels dismissed the idea that Steve will be making a comeback, telling the media recently: “I think Steve felt, and I agree, that the ‘Goodbye, Michael’ episode was his goodbye and he didn’t want to overshadow the ending that all the other characters deserved”.
Now we’re hearing something different. The website TV line is reporting that Carell will in fact be in the show’s finale episode. However his role will be more like a cameo and only audiences can speculate as to what his comeback will be like. The show has been struggling mightily since Carell’s departure and we don’t blame him for not wanting to come back.
Steve Carell has yet to address the topic anywhere publicly so it’s all speculation right now. We think he’ll be on the show but the show itself really won’t be a big deal.
