Critics Consensus

While it struggles to answer how Dunder Mifflin will continue to thrive without Steve Carell's terrific performance, The Office sends off his Michael Scott in heartfelt fashion.

Tv Season Info

Three months prior to the premiere, NBC confirmed that Season 7 would be Steve Carell's last season headlining the cast (as Michael G. Scott, Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company's Scranton Branch). The season served to send off Carell in typical, hilarious fashion. Notable story lines from Season 7: Michael is compelled by his corporate bosses to undergo counseling, facilitated by his office nemesis, HR rep Toby Flenderson (Paul Lieberstein); Andy (Ed Helms), feeling jealous of a former college buddy's successful music career, starts an office band with warehouse foreman Darryl (Craig Robinson) and accountant Kevin (Brian Baumgartner); and, filmmaker wannabe Michael finally presents his action movie, titled "Threat Level Midnight," to Holly (Amy Ryan) and the rest of the staffers (this, after he spent 11 long years of writing, filming, re-filming and then re-filming again). Season guest stars include: Ricky Gervais, Timothy Olyphant, Will Arnett, Ray Romano, James Spader, and Jim Carrey.

Critic Reviews for The Office Season 7

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (14)

It takes a lot of smarts and talent to play the perfect doofus -- which means Steve Carell just might be the most intelligent guy in Hollywood.

There were great moments, particularly in Michael's relationship with his girlfriend Holly and in his colleagues' rallying to say goodbye, but there were a lot of bad moments, too. A guest arc from Will Ferrell was both distracting and limply written.

Zippy and fun and packed with quotable punchlines.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

There's no accounting for which vision of existence is more accurate, or has more artistic merit -- life is boring, great, and awful at times. But the British office was mean where the American office is nice. And that's better.

Ultimately, The Office earned the affection it wanted us to feel for Michael, and then went on to do what would have been unthinkable with the Ricky Gervais Office: We could, at times, at crucial moments, identify with Michael.

How do you solve a conundrum like Michael Scott's exit?... The producers, writers and cast chose option No. 2. It was a smart move.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

I worried that a parade of big name guest stars would not only not fit comfortably into the world of the show but turn the finale into a disjointed mess. I feel my fears were unfortunately correct.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

It was a great episode for Carell. It was a great episode for Krasinski, Wilson and Jenna Fischer. There were many excellent grace notes with the other supporting players.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

The Office is at its best when it has one foot planted in reality and the other drifting off into the absurd.

Feb 24, 2020 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

We've seen signs that the show can go on without Michael, but not if those behind the scenes ruin it by overcompensating with stunt casting gone wild.

Feb 24, 2020 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Sadly, this season proved to be one of the weakest... However, the seventh season of The Office still contains some truly great episodes, genuinely touching moments, and one marathon of a fantastic performance from Steve Carell.

Feb 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Consider The Office to be an example of the sitcom that ends with a dull whimper.

    Saying goodbye to Michael Scott was hard and emotional :'(

    This is the last season where the office has its magic and Michaels send off is amazing.

    My favorite season so far, goodbye, Michael
  • Mar 15, 2020
    Season 7 is the last really great season of The Office because it is the last season with Michael. Threat Level Midnight and Goodbye, Michael are two of the very best episodes of the show, and this season was an improvement on Season 6 and reminds me of the earlier seasons. With only minor flaws, Season 7 is another great season from The Office.

    Sad to see Michael go, but still an excellent season.

    The season starts stronger than most others, and ends with a heartfelt tribute to Michael Scott. The show would never be the same without him. (A-)

    The office is interesting since season 1 to season 9. Talking about the great and inimitable seasons 1 to 7, I can say that I never saw anything in my entire life that made me laugh so hard in the most part of its episodes. All of the characters have a great development and are interesting, portrayed by a charismatic and talented cast. The script is strong and the plot will always surprise you. Season after season they can construct something new, without being repetitive. The highest point in the office goes to Michael Scott, portrayed by Steve Carell. He is absolutely the heart of this show.

    The series as a whole is hilarious. You can really connect with the characters and everything about the series is so relatable and filled with all emotions
