One day after airing its eighth season finale, NBC has renewed The Office for a ninth, and final, season. Season 8 was the show's first without star Steve Carell, but it didn't stumble too much without him thanks in large part to their well-rounded cast of established characters. 

There is no word on the number of episodes that have been ordered, but expect somewhere between 22 and 26.
