Steve Carell, Amy Ryan, The Office

Praise jebus! Amy Ryan is really, truly and finally returning to Dunder Mifflin.

(Any chance you might rethink that departure now, Steve Carell? Pretty please?)

That's right, tubers, onetime geektastic lovahs Michael and Holly will (eventually) reunite during The Office's seventh season, NBC confirms. And thanks to the brilliant folks over at Zap2it, Paul Lieberstein, aka show runner and perpetual sad sack Toby, is spilling the squeeworthy deets:

You may want to sit down before we move ahead with this mini-Office spoilerama—especially you Milly, Milax, Hollot (?) fans.

Amy is set to appear in eight—count 'em—episodes of the NBC hit. You read right—not one, not two, but eight!

Apparently Kathy Bates' Jo wasn't messing around when she promised Holly's Scranton return in the finale, but according to Paul, Michael's true love is "not happy about coming back." Mainly because she's got a pretty good thing going with her Nashua boyfriend, played by Rob Huebel.

But don't fret. We trust Paul and Greg Daniels to do the right thing, and should Steve Carell exit the series at the end of the season, we've no doubt Holly join Michael on his journey.

And might our seventh-grade selves add: Michael + Holly = True Love Forever.

How amazing is this news? Are you counting down the seconds until a Dunder Mifflin reunion? Sing your amens in the comments!
