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.

Audience Reviews for The Office: Season 7

  • May 30, 2021
    Although this season is quite forgettable (like most of the seasons), it's still very good.
  • Apr 21, 2021
    I liked this season, but it is not a particularly good one. I mean it is still funny, but not enough to be one of the best. One thing I found good is that Michael seemed to have gain in maturity.
  • Apr 08, 2021
    Definitely feels weird without Michael doing his usual antics, but still a great show nonetheless
  • Mar 31, 2021
    The show didn't focus enough on Michael, this show should always focus around this character. It was his last season, but the show kept trying to focus on other characters which is why this season was not a five star.
  • Feb 26, 2021
    The only thing that I was really sad but hated at the same time is that they took Steve Carrel off the show. I'm not sure if it was a writer's decision or if it was something else. Nonetheless, I'm upset that they took him off the show.
  • Oct 27, 2020
    The Office Season 7 is another incredibly fun season, hosting some of the best episodes of The Office so far.
  • Sep 30, 2020
    Lots of funny and heartfelt moments, but not as good as previous seasons. This is still really good but a slight disappointment for standards of The Office. This season has a few boring episodes but is still worth watching.
  • Sep 02, 2020
    In its seventh season, The Office encountered its biggest challenge by far with the departure of its lead character, Michael Scott, and I believe that they managed to give him the sendoff that he deserved. Another great season of television filled with awesome, laugh-out-loud moments.
