The Office: Rashida Jones, John Krasinski

Wanna know exactly what's going to happen on the finale of The Office?

Well, apparently, so do the producers.

Sources tell me exclusively that The Office is shooting two endings to the current season—one in which Rashida Jones (Karen) leaves the show, and one in which she stays—because it is not yet known whether Rashida will be back next season.

As you may have heard, R.J. shot a comedy pilot for Fox called The Rules for Starting Over, and she won't know until late next week whether it has been picked up. If it is, Rashida will leave The Office to fulfill her Rules contract. If it isn't, she will stick around for another season to make us Jim and Pam fans miserable.

The good news? I am told by Fox insiders that her pilot looks "very likely" for pickup, so this could mean we finally get the Jam yumminess we've been craving! Hurrah!

Meanwhile, how's this for news of the maximum awesome variety? Sources tell me the rumors are true that The Office may be expanding to a full hour next season. Word is, NBC execs are seriously considering a lengthier Office on Thursday nights (perhaps signaling a move of Scrubs to ABC).

All will be revealed when the networks present their new fall schedules to advertisers the week of May 14 in NYC. Can. Not. Wait!  (And yes, I'll be there to bring you all the scoop.)
