While we're still trying to recover from yesterday's news that The Office will be saying bye-bye after its ninth season, Ricky Gervais is viewing the end of the show in a every-cloud-has-a-silver-lining way.

"I couldn't be prouder of the success of the U.S. version of The Office, but all good things come to an end," the comedian told the Wall Street Journal. "Luckily, with syndication, it's the gift that keeps on giving."

Of course, the original British sitcom, which Gervais cocreated and which was eventually adapted by Greg Daniels for NBC, isn't the only show to come from the funnyman's brilliant brain.

So given the popularity of the American Office, it only makes sense that Gervais would be thinking about how he can best utilize his other programs.

"Maybe I'll do a remake of Extras next," he said.

Sounds good to us!
