(Newser) – Could this mean happily-ever-after for Michael Scott? With Steve Carell leaving The Office after next season, his character's soulmate—Holly, played by Amy Ryan—is returning to the show and "will be playing a sizable role" throughout the season, reports Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly. “We set her return up in the finale, so it would be the biggest (cop-out) of all time if we didn’t (follow through) on it,” show exec and cast member Mindy Kaling tells him. “She’s definitely coming back.”
