Re: Steve Carell Leaving The Office
I'll bet that the show gets shut down after 7 seasons. 7 seasons provides the magic number of episodes that studios find ideal for syndication. If it continues beyond that, the studio and network will likely have to start paying John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Rainn Wilson $1M/episode, like the cast of Friends got when that show's run was extended. NBC is no longer owned by a parent company that would be willing to throw that kind of money at a show.
