The Office renewed for Season 7!

From today’s NBC press release:

NBC has renewed three more of its Thursday-night comedies – “30 Rock” (9:30-10 p.m. ET), “The Office” (9-9:30 p.m. ET) and the freshman series “Community” (8-8:30 p.m. ET) for the 2010-11 season. The returning programs join the previously announced “Parks and Recreation” (Thursdays, 8:30-9 p.m. ET) that also will return for next season.

Currently in its sixth season, “The Office” is network television’s #1 primetime scripted series among adults 18-34 and is NBC’s #1 scripted series in the key demographic of adults 18-49. “The Office” regularly finishes #2 in its highly competitive time period in adults 18-49 ahead of CBS’s “CSI.” The most recent “Office” telecast on March 4 outscored ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” marking the first time “The Office” has topped “Grey’s” head-to-head in adults 18-49. For the season through 23 weeks, “The Office” is averaging a 4.9 rating, 12 share in adults 18-49 and 9.4 million viewers overall, representing gains versus last season of 4 percent in 18-49 and 3 percent in total viewers.

Congratulations! :)

  1. YAY! Congratulations Office Cast! Hopefully we can see more of Cecelia Marie, too!

  2. hm. i thought it was already confirmed when mindy kaling tweeted that all the writers were going on a retreat to brainstorm for season 7.

  3. Now that the Office is being renewed, I have a question. Is that $1 lottery ticket for a trip to The Office set still going on?

  4. Woo hoo! Thursday will continue to be the best day of the week for another year. Congratulations, Office – and thanks for being extra awesome!

  5. Not that I had any doubts that it would return, but it’s always nice to have confirmation.

    I hope season 7 isn’t the last. The thought of the show winding down bums me out big time.

  6. As much as I love this show, I don’t want it to die out slowly and painfully. Ending after a seventh season would be a great way to go out on top instead of dragging it out.

    In my opinion, a seventh and final season would be a great idea.

  7. Couldn’t be happier!! And I’m not surprised it’s #1!

    Here’s hoping there isn’t an end in sight!!

  8. THIS IS AWESOME, but not surprising:) does anyone know if Steve is returning? I remember hearing everyone had contracts for another season, but steve didn’t or had one less year than everyone else. Anyone know anything?

  9. @Emily…

    If Steve wasn’t coming back, I HIGHLY doubt the show would have been renewed. He’s a pretty integral part and I don’t think the show would be successful without him.

  10. YES! I’m so glad… and at the same time i’m hoping season 7 is the final season AND NBC announces that it will be the final season so we can really anticipate it and go out with a bang… like LOST
