Mark your calendars! Season 5 of NBC’s hit, “The Office,” officially begins on Thursday, September 25 at 9:00 pm/ET with a full one hour episode to kick it all off. Fans can look forward to 28 new Dunder-Mifflin episodes, all lined up for the new fall season.
If you need to catch up on previous episodes I recommend watching The Office through Netflix. They have all 4 seasons (66 Episodes) available to watch. You can sign up for a 2 week free trial and watch episodes online or rent the DVD’s.
Rumors run wild about what to expect as NBC’s highest rated sitcom goes into its’ fifth season, including two love-triangles (Dwight/Angela/Andy and Jan/Michael/Holly) in the season opener – and speaking of Holly, look for her to call a meeting in the second episode to address the practice of business ethics and a non-participating branch of Dunder-Mifflin. Hmmm….
Pam is off to Pratt Art School and “Mad Men” fans can look forward to seeing Rich Sommer, who plays Harry Crane on the highly rated AMC series, as a fellow classmate in the premiere episode. Will Sommer’s character turn out to be Jan’s sperm donor? Does he have a connection to Pam and by the way, just who will be Pam’s replacement while she’s gone? Will Michael really make the office throw a baby shower for a baby that isn’t even his? And the question, as always, remains – will Jim ever pop the question to Pam so we can have an awesome office engagement party? Will they really have a long distance relationship and if so, just how will it all work out?
Rumors have also been swirling about a former cast member returning to Dunder-Mifflin and while many names have been tossed about and former employees speculated, far as I can tell, this little secret is being kept under some very big wraps. Any guesses?
What’s happened to Toby and Ryan? Have we seen the last of these two? Did Toby end up in a Costa Rican hospital? Rumors say that Ryan will be back, but have we seen the last of Toby? I say don’t count on it.
While rumors abound concerning what’s in store for fans this season, one thing is a constant and steadfast comfort; Regional Manager Michael Scott isn’t going anywhere – Steve Carell has signed on for 3 more seasons.
Look for “The Office” to air a special episode on February 1st immediately after the Super Bowl and while the much anticipated “Office” spin-off is said to still be in development, reportedly it’s not the new show which stars Amy Pohler. Sources say that while Pohler’s show will have a similar style and tone since it comes from the same great team who bring us “The Office,” it’s not to be confused or mistaken for the official “Office” spin-off.
