NBC has announced that The Office episode Livin’ the Dream, scheduled to air May 2, is now extended to an hour!
Note that this episode starts earlier than usual — 8:30/7:30c.
I’ve confirmed this news with The Office’s longtime editor/director/producer Dave Rogers. And the episode numbers remain the same, i.e. the finale is still numbered 9.24-25.
Dave says this: “We knew the last two episodes would be hour-longs, and The Finale might even end up running longer, but we still had a lot of great storytelling to do leading up to them and ‘Livin’ The Dream’ was one that ultimately deserved to be an hour long episode as well! All I will say is that these final episodes are among our best ever and I can’t wait for the fans to see them!”
I feel like The Office doesn’t want to say goodbye… and neither do we fans!
Much like a two-way petting zoo. xo

The Office episode airing on February 14, Moving On, has been supersized to one hour, according to NBC.
It will air 9-10/8-9c.
Even better, I’ve confirmed with The Office producers that the second half hour doesn’t count as an episode, so we’ll still have eight episodes left to air after next week.
Here’s a promo.
Awesome Blossom, extra awesome!
Just a reminder that TWO new episodes of ‘The Office’ air tonight:

The Office episodes The Boat and The Whale will be postponed by one week due to NBC’s decision to re-run Monday’s episode of The Voice this Thursday, November 1, 8 to 10pm.
The Target is currently tbd.
