News that The Office would be closing up shop at the end of this, their ninth, season came as a bit of a shock to fans. But, as Rainn Wilson says in ETonline's exclusive clip from Hulu's Larry King Now, the decision was not only made a while back, but by the cast as a whole.
"We had been planning that for a while," Wilson tells King. "We were the ones really gunning for ... one really strong final season that we can all get out there and promote. Let's not do the trickling, 'Maybe one year, maybe six more episodes, maybe ten.' Let's end strong."
And anyone who has been tuning in to the currently-airing season knows the cast capitalized on that emotional momentum as this is their best work in ages.
