Steve Carell, Paul Lieberstein, The Office

NBC/Byron Cohen

Wait a minute!

NBC has confirmed that the title of the supersecret season finale of The Office is...wait for it..."Goodbye, Toby." Gaaah! Could they really be letting our favorite mumbly, bumbly HR friend go? Is this the departing castmember Jenna Fischer has hinted at?

Well, according to our sources, writer-actor Paul Lieberstein is staying with The Office. Now, does that mean he's staying on as an actor, or as a writer? Truth told, I didn't ask because I got distracted by something shiny along the way...(Sorry, but you don't want the finale ruined anyway, do you?)

Now, you ask, what was said thing so shiny? I'm hearing from sources that writer-actor Mike Schur, best known to Office viewers as Mose Schrute, Dwight's possibly inbred and fully hilarious cousin, will be running The Office spinoff along with Greg Daniels next season. Woot!

NBC declined  to comment on whether that's true.

Rumors that it's a Dwight spinoff have been denied—I suspect Ed Helms' Andy is the most likely candidate, 'cause come on, just look at him!—but Mose, I mean, Mike, would certainly have the right insight into life at Schrute Farms if such a series were to be made...

Your thoughts? Toby leaving or staying? And who would you like to see most in the spinoff? Share below, please!
