"I couldn't be prouder of the success of the U.S. version of The Office, but all good things come to an end. Luckily, with syndication, it's the gift that keeps on giving." Comedian Ricky Gervais comments on the end of the hit TV comedy, which is based on his British creation of the same name. It was announced on Tuesday (21Aug12) that the upcoming ninth season of The Office will be its last.
