Print this article The eighth season of "The Office" is nearing completion, and its future is still uncertain. The show has not been picked up for a ninth season just yet, and if it does it may look much different than its current incarnation, Deadline reports.
The popular NBC comedy already lost its star Steve Carell after season seven, and the series could get a complete reboot after this year. The reasoning behind the overhaul is that contracts for John Krasinksi, Ed Helms and Jenna Fischer are all up at the end of season eight, and with Helms and Krasinksi making their way into film, it may not be feasible to keep them on.
In addition to the burgeoning film careers of its two stars, the show is also facing a number of other questions. Namely, how it intends to deal with the planned spin-off featuring Rainn Wilson's Dwight, which is set for a mid-season 2013 premier. Furthermore, with writers Mindy Kaling and Paul Lieberstein potentially leaving, a reboot may be in order, the website reports.
Of course, there is still some time to get these issues resolved. Until then, however, fans can check out their favorite episodes through TV on DVD and watch similar series like "Parks and Recreation."
