The title of The Office Season 6 premiere is ‘Gossip.’ It is written and directed by Paul Lieberstein.
Re: the new Office webisode series airing on NBC.com in the fall:
[Mindy] Kaling’s immediate future also involves a move into directing. The Dartmouth alum is helming (and appearing in) the next batch of “Office” webisodes, which revolve around a female rock band called Subtle Sexuality.
Re: The Office Season 6:
“The idea of leaving ‘The Office’ is totally terrifying to me,” she says. “Part of me is getting excited about a different format… but I love working at ‘The Office’.”
One possible solution to her fears could be teaming up with “Office” executive producer Greg Daniels again, though no talks about such a scenario have taken place. For now, the two are teaming up to write a key, hour-long episode of next season’s “Office.”

On Monday, The Office’s Mindy Kaling tweeted:
Spent the day goosing around and shaking ass in dance rehearsal with Ellie Kemper. America wanted more dancing on “The Office”, right?
Could it be “Cafe Disco – The Sequel”?

Maureen in Sunnyvale, Calif.: I miss The Office! Are we ever going to see Jan again?
Yes, ma’am. The lovely Jan Levinson (Melora Hardin) will be back on The Office next season, but only part time. At the premiere of her indie flick, You, Melora spilled on what to expect from Jan’s triumphant return to The Office: “I’ll be back as a special guest star next year for a couple of episodes. They can’t lose Jan, we all love Jan. She will probably be sprinkled in throughout the season.” Teased Melora, “It will be hilarious to see her as a mother, and we need to find out who the father of Astrid is.” Kevin! Please let the baby daddy be Kevin.
Is Amy Ryan returning to The Office?
“They keep that (the plans for Holly) under wraps, if they are indeed thinking of it. There’s no plan there.” When I asked her if she was under contract for any episodes next season, she said she wasn’t.
Q. Do you already have the next season mapped out, however tentatively? For example, do you know if the new season will pick up right after the company picnic, or if it will jump ahead a few months? | pamalamadingdong
Jen C: We’re still mapping out what will happen next year — we started work a few days after season 5 ended — but I can tell you — (SPOILER ALERT) – that there will be a wedding for Pam and Jim. Where, when, and any kind of specifics beyond that, I don’t know yet.
Q. Is Erin coming back for Season 6? She is a really nice character to have on the show. | Veronica
Jen C: Erin is coming back and we like her a lot, too. She is a fun addition and we think it’s fun to see someone who truly enjoys being there.
May 21: Upfronts announcements
Here’s the confirmed list of Thursday 9pm shows for the coming season:
- FOX: Fringe
- ABC: Grey’s Anatomy
- NBC: The Office
- CBS: CSI
- CW: Supernatural
Question: Please, please, please have some good scoop for The Office. I feel like it has been forever since we have learned something new. — Matt
Ausiello: Here’s what you already know: Everyone (including Amy Ryan’s Holly) gathers together for Dunder Mifflin’s annual company picnic. Here’s what you don’t know: The episode ends with a doozy of a twist, the repercussions of which will be felt well into next season.
On the show’s 100th episode, Dunder Mifflin sponsors an “eventful” company picnic, at which guest stars (and Wire vets) Amy Ryan and Idris Elba will no doubt charm and torture Michael Scott, respectively. What’s that? You were hoping to see Jim and Pam’s nuptials by the end of the season? Well, pick up the shattered pieces of your life and move on, because it ain’t going to happen. We’re hearing that the honour of our presence will instead be requested for a fall wedding.
Revolving Office door: Jan’s back!
The Office’s Melora Hardin, who’s been largely MIA this season as Michael’s ex Jan, will reappear next fall. ”We’re [talking] about what we are going to do with her,” says the actress, who was just cast in FX’s boxing-themed pilot Lights Out. ”[But] they assure me they need me next season.”
Apr. 24, 2009: Set visit
