Critic Reviews for The Office Season 9

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (23)

The Office has seemed lost, particularly by devoting substantial time to world-building Dwight's beet farm, a remnant of a failed spin-off effort.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

It succumbed to the bane of American TV -- the endless more-more-more of anything good or popular, the twisting of characters into pretzels to simply keep them in motion, the cheap substitutes after lead actors depart.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

For nine years now, The Office has provided us with more laughs than we can count, and anyone who doesn't have it on their list of the Top 10 TV comedies of all time needs to redo their list.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

There's some symmetry in the fact that after eight years, four Emmys, three regional managers, and an untold number of parties in the conference room, The Office's farewell feels more like an afterthought than an event.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Even though its later seasons never lived up to its groundbreaking early explorations of contemporary work culture, what The Office leaves us with are memories of television comedy at its best.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

And so NBC's The Office takes its leave, after overstaying its welcome and most often erring on the side of over-worked sentiment rather than pure comedy.

Feb 19, 2020 | Full Review…

It was just right. For as much as we complained about the latter half of the series and yearned for the Michael Scott years, the ending was more about the fact that you took a journey with these characters.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

You get to the point where you can't stand the sight of the thing that you used to love, and there's a huge relief when you finally decide to end it. But it's then... that the things that you used to love so much decide to reappear.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

The Office may have lost almost all of its subtly in season eight, but it regained just enough of it to send it off right in season nine.

Feb 24, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

I concluded that I was watching a show that wasn't just winding down. It was being taken off life support.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

I thought it was a fitting finale to the show overall, and if there weren't a lot of [laugh out loud]-worthy jokes, the more emotional elements made up for it.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

When the focus shifts from primary characters to the entire cast, we're reminded that a strong, comedic ensemble still exists.

Audience Reviews for The Office: Season 9

  • Apr 21, 2021
    Here, it's a pretty good season. For the second season in a row, there's no Michael Scott, but the series is able to replace him, by the same hilarious touch and emotions. I would not say it was an incredibly funny season, but it had the same sense oh humor of the first seven season wich was not the case of season 8. What I really appreciated of the closing season is the emotional ending and the presence of the filming crew of the "documentary" in the show wich had consequences on the characters.Nice!
  • Apr 08, 2021
    This season introduces my least favourite character in the Office - Pete, and completely destroys the character development of one of my favourites - Andy. There were many gems, with a near perfect ending, but any scene with Pete for me was just... Unwatchable
  • Apr 01, 2021
    (Series) Great show that picks up heavy momentum after the first season. Hilarious and lovable characters you care for so much it gets harder and harder to say goodbye because the show insanely re-watchable. This will be a phase.
  • Mar 31, 2021
    Show should've ended with Michael boarding the plane in season 7, not with him coming back for a few minutes with one funny line and him seeming out of place.
  • Mar 30, 2021
    One of the best shows ever made.
  • Mar 19, 2021
    The farewell season of the office does deliver a gratifying finale, however it suffers from abysmal writing throughout majority of the episodes. They utterly mismanage Andy's character in such a disrespectful and gross way. They also nonsensically dedicate so much screen time to Pete, the lame-ass new character. His relationship with Erin, in my opinion, is the worst, most bland romance on the whole show and lacks any semblance of charm. They're just a pitiful rehash of Jim and Pam, trying to copy the success of the earlier seasons. This season isn't without its pros, but the cons are far too damaging to redeem the overall product, rendering this a very disappointing part of the series.
  • Feb 26, 2021
    Season 9 was a bit better than season 8 but it really had nowhere to go with the show. I like the ending episodes but there is proof that the show could've ended 3 seasons ago.
  • Feb 21, 2021
    The show was able to make a comeback, after the exit of the lovable Michael Scott.
  • Jan 20, 2021
    The most heartfelt and perfect way to finally conclude the Office sitcom (That's what she said).
  • Dec 26, 2020
    The ninth and final season of 'The Office' has its ups and downs, but manages to provide closure for almost every single character in a finale that packs more emotional weight than any other I have seen. Season 9 dares to venture into unknown territories and puts its characters in uncomfortable situations, creating a compelling storyline in doing so.
