Will Arnett and Ricky Gervais to Guest Star on THE OFFICE Season Finale

Will Arnett Ricky Gervais

THE OFFICE is bringing in at least two special guest stars for its seventh season finale. Entertainment Weekly reports that both Will Arnett and Ricky Gervais will appear in the hour-long episode, which airs on NBC May 19. There will also apparently be other “notable” guest stars.

Because the episode is still being written, it’s not known what brings Arnett and Gervais to Dunder Mifflin, but Gervais has already appeared on The Office this season, when he played David Trent in the “The Seminar” episode.

While Gervais did blog earlier this year that Arnett could be a good successor for the departing Steve Carell, EW’s sources say no assumptions should be made about either Gervais or Arnett taking over for Michael Scott next season.

The Office airs on NBC Thursdays at 9pm eastern/8 central.
