The paper-pushers of Dunder Mifflin will make one last stop in Scranton before closing their doors next month.
“The Office” Wrap Party will celebrate the upcoming conclusion of the Scranton-set television show with several activities throughout the city on Saturday, May 4. The event was announced between the seventh and eight innings of Thursday’s Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders game.
A group of cast and crew members from the show – which ends its nine-year run on NBC on Thursday, May 16 – are expected to attend. An official announcement about who will participate will come next Thursday, said Timothy L. Holmes, regional director of marketing & events for Times-Shamrock Communications.
“We do know there’s definitely a strong contingent of writers and cast members coming out,” he said.
In the case of the Scranton branch of struggling, midsize paper concern Dunder Mifflin, that time will be next spring.
On Tuesday, Greg Daniels, executive producer of the Scranton-set NBC sitcom “The Office,” told The Times-Tribune that the show will come to an end following its ninth season, which begins in September.
“It’s been a good run,” Mr. Daniels said during a phone interview from the show’s production office in Los Angeles.
