Fans of "The Office" (there are still some of you out there, right?), it's a bittersweet moment -- the show will be coming to a close in the middle of this month, but it looks like the finale is going to be a doozy. And, it's going to give you a little something extra: Rather than the typical 30-minute time slot, it will run for a full 75 minutes.

EW.com reports
that the last episode of the much-beloved tale of Dunder Mifflin will go from from 9-10:15 p.m. on May 16. The final rundown of the show, according to the entertainment site, is as follows:

Months after the airing of the documentary, the workers of Dunder Mifflin, past and present, gather for a wedding and a final round of interviews. Mysteries are solved, hatchets are buried, pranks are prunked. Guest stars include Mindy Kaling, BJ Novak, Rachael Harris, Dakota Johnson, Joan Cusack, Ed Begley Jr., Malcolm Barrett, Matt Jones, Andy Buckley, Mike Schur and Bobby Ray Shafer.

In addition to the extra time, there will be an extra chance to revisit a favorite character: TVLine reported this morning that Steve Carrell will make an appearance in the final episode, despite previous rumors that he would leave well enough alone:

According to sources, Carell’s return engagement qualifies as more of a cameo than a full-fledged guest appearance.
