Be prepared to say goodbye to Dunder Mifflin…

Be prepared to say goodbye to Dunder Mifflin…

Today is reporting that NBC will be ending its long-running “The Office” after the upcoming ninth season.

Executive producer Greg Daniels, who will return as showrunner for the final year, told reporters in a conference call that he has no doubt the final season will bring a lot of exciting times for fans and creators alike:

“As we head into the home stretch, we have a lot of exciting things I’ve been wanting to do since season two…The end should be pretty cool.”

Daniels says that this was the “last chance” for the crew “to go out” the way he had envisioned:

“At some point you have a choice: to always tell the beginnings of stories and the middles or to allow a story to end and I think endings can be very powerful and meaningful pieces of the story…If we didn’t let it end this year, I don’t know if we would have been able to tell the endings for so many character that I really want to know the endings for.”

So what should we expect for the final season of “The Office”?  Daniels says that he and the writers plan to squeeze as many character arcs and ideas in as possible:

“The real heart of the show are these arcs that allow these characters to have ongoing stories. It’s all going to be set up in the premiere…There’s so much to pay off from nine seasons, so many great characters that my biggest concern is just tacking in these great ideas that the writing staff has on the walls and making sure we hit all of them or at least squeeze as many into the ending.”

Daniels also added that “familiar faces [will be] coming back”, and despite being the last hurrah, there will be new cast members like Jake Lacy and Clark Duke.

And yes, we will finally get to meet that documentary crew that’s been following around our favorite paper-company employees for so long.

“The Office” returns to NBC September 20 at 9 p.m.

Call off the perch and rescue.

Earlier today, we reported that T’Challa, the African Grey parrot belonging to Monique Samuels of Real Housewives Of Potomac fame, had gone missing. After flying off yesterday morning the Potomac pet has finally made his way back to Monique’s backyard. In a series of videos posted to Instagram just two hours agp, Monique shared that T’Challa flew into the yard and perched himself onto a chair. The housewife admitted that her bird looked like he had his feathers ruffled last night but shared that he was so happy to be home he allowed Monique to hug him.

We love a happy ending!

T’Challa The African Grey Parrot Belonging To ‘RHOP’ Star Monique Samuels Is Missing!

Polly wanna search and rescue?

Sure, we all tilted our heads and raised an eyebrow when Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels leashed up her African Grey parrot and took him to lunch at cast mate Karen Huger’s house but there is no denying that the football wife loves her bird as much as any dog owner would their pup. So you can only imagine how devastated Monique must be now that T’Challa has gone missing!

On Sunday, Monique took to Instagram to share the heartbreaking news that during her morning coffee in the yard her bird, with the Black Panther namesake, had gotten spooked and flew off. In the 8 minute video, the reality star shared her fears that since T’Challa is not an experienced flyer he may injure himself or get stuck in a tree with no way of coming down. Monique shared that her husband, Chris Samuels, took care of their children all day so she could hit the streets to pass out flyers and search for the bird.

While recapping the second episode of season 5 which aired Sunday night, Monique also gave a T’Challa-update in which she thanked her fans for their outpouring support but sadly reported that the parrot is missing. The good news is that T’Challa is microchipped so if someone else should find him and take him to an animal rescue, Monique will be notified.

Fingers crossed!

WATCH: The Opening Scene From ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2 Looks Amazing But Raises A Bunch Of Questions

Published

on

Three minutes of gun shots, explosions, superpowers and lots and lots of questions!

The Netflix hit The Umbrella Academy is back for a highly anticipated second season. Just this morning the streaming service shared the opening scene for season 2 and it looks explosive. When we last saw the rag-tag team of superpowered siblings, Number 5 used his time traveling abilities to escape to the past to ensure the gangs safety from the imminent apocalypse. Oddly enough it seems the gang is once again facing an apocalypse but this time it comes in the form of nuclear weapons falling from the sky in 1963. You can never have enough apocalypses, am I right?

The whole gang is back with Ellen Page, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton and Mary J. Blige returning. This season the siblings seem to have evolved both in their looks and their powers. Donning all black, the superheroes combat the Russian soldiers who are storming the streets after JFK has declared war. It’s clear that the petty drama that divided the team last season has been put aside as they now kick butt as a well oiled machine. It wouldn’t make for very exciting tv if the group remained happy-go-lucky however, so in the last few seconds we see the aged assassin Hazel return to take Number 5 on another time hop to save his family from the nuclear bombs that are dropping from the sky.

What will happen next?! Are we going further back in time again? Is it possible avoid two apocalypses? How did they adjust to life without cellphones?!?

Luckily we don’t have to wait long to find out the answers to these questions. Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy is available for streaming on July 31st.
