Following the huge success of the UK version of the hit show The Office, there was a lot of expectation on the US version of the show. The Office US was a massive success and has been running for almost nine seasons. The show is now coming to its end and John Krasinski, who plays Jim in The Office, has been talking about The Office series finale.
Krasinski told TV Guide, "At the beginning of his [Philadelphia] job, he was travelling a lot all over the country for all his different clients. It was definitely a strain on the family in a very new way. For me, it was - can you have this perfect relationship go through a split and keep it the same? Which, of course you can't. I said to [showrunner Greg Daniels] it would be really interesting to see how that split will affect two people that you know so well."
He added, "I remember Greg saying, very smartly, that we have to give the audience something as far as trying to see a light at the end of the tunnel. But I don't think it necessarily answers all the questions as to how they'll solve it. There's a romantic hope that everything will be OK at the end of that episode. And now there's going to have to be a little bit more brass tacks, if you will, as far as getting to understand how this will work. Because Jim needs to figure out what he wants to do with Philly, and Pam needs to figure out how she feels about him doing this for her."
The Office season nine airs on Thursdays nights, with The Office series finale airing on May 16.
