On March 4, 2005, the first episode called “The Pilot” was aired on television. A documentary crew has arrived at Dunder Mifflin’s office to observe its employees and discover more about modern management. Michael Scott then tried to show that the company was still prosperous even when it was going through a rough patch.
Season 2 focused on the relationships between the characters. The remarkable one is between Jim and Pam, Michael and Jan, and Ryan and Kelly. It was also when Dwight and Angela began to develop an “office romance” with each other.
The company’s downsizing was still present this season, and it even resulted in firing one employee to survive. The tension between Pam and Jim also becomes noticeable as they become closer to each other.
One of the highlights in season 3 is when Jim finally accepts Pam’s decision to marry Roy, which ends up him transferring to the Stamford branch. Here’s where the plot twist comes in - a few days before the wedding, Pam called off her relationship with Roy, but he is not letting it happen, so he decided to win her back.
The season also introduced new Stamford-based employees like Andy Bernard and Karen Filippelli. However, this is also where the said branch will close and later merge with Scranton. Ryan was promoted to salesman while Jim has developed a new romance with Karen.
Fans say that season 4 is the most important of all. There were countless The Office episodes about how the characters dealt with their personal and professional relationships.
Michael was trying to stay away from being a “victim” of his abusive relationship with Jan. Ryan experienced a rise and fall from power and tried to attract Dunder Muffin to his new website.
Angela and Dwight’s relationship became shakey when Dwight had to perform a mercy killing on her cat. On the other hand, Pam and Jim were able to develop a deeper relationship with each other.
Season 5 is one of the greatest seasons of all because of the new plotlines it had. This season starts with Pam going to an art school in New York. Dwight and Angela also started betraying Andy and had a “secret affair.” Andy discovered later on what was happening between them, so she cut off her connection with the two.
After attending art school, Pam went back and got engaged with Jim, and later on, became pregnant. Holly and Michael are still trying to put their relationship into place before she transfers into another town.
This season has one of the most episodes (26 in total). It depicted Jim and Pam’s marriage up to Pam giving birth and the other life changes as a couple. On the other hand, Andy, Dwight, and Angela were still dealing with the “unfinished business” in their relationship.
Another relationship starts to bloom between Michael and Donna and Andy and Erin. Jo Bennet also saw it fit to force everyone in the office to work harder than they ever did.
Some guests like Kathy Bates, Zach Woods, Amy Pietz, and Linda Purl joined this season.
This season also has twenty-six episodes that last for about half an hour. One of the notable events in season 7 is when Dwight bought the Scranton Business Park. Erin has also developed a new relationship with Gabe.
Pam decided to stop focusing on sales and became an office administrator instead. Moreover, Holly returned to Scranton to win Michael back. They, later on, got engaged as they started to take their relationship seriously.
This is the episode where everyone witnessed Michael planning to live in Colorado. In this season, his “exit” in series was laid out and established.
The second to the last season depicts how Andy became the new boss of the company. He gave everyone high hopes after Michael Scott left. Dwight was also able to get the 2nd highest position in the office with Jim’s help.
Erin realized that she could not find development and a future in Scranton, so she decided to leave not only Scranton but also Andy.
In this final season, Andy quit his job and pursued his dream of becoming an actor. Jim also returned to Scranton and spent most of his time there with Pam. Pam, in return, sold their house because she wanted to go with him to Athleap in Austin.
Before the season ended, Dwight reminisced about the time he spent with his subordinates. Darryl also shared that he feels heavy in leaving work, and Jim spoke about spending the rest of his life together with his wife and their family.
Pam ended it by saying, “There’s a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn’t that kind of the point?”
Is there going to be a season 10 of The Office?
Yes. According to the report, The Office may release Season 10 without any exact date yet. Having a comeback is not a bad idea. However, they are still considering how everything will work since the cast has focused on their career growth and personal lives since it ended.
Why was The Office canceled?
The Office was not canceled. It all stemmed from a misinterpreted statement from Ricky Gervais during his interview. It was supposed to be a joke (which many people took seriously). People should have read his complete statement before spreading that the famous sitcom series was “canceled.”
