(Newser) – Ending weeks of speculation, Steve Carell has confirmed that he'll leave The Office when his contract expires at the end of the 2010-2011 season. "I just think it's time," the sitcom star tells E! "When I first signed on I had a contract for seven seasons, and this coming year is my seventh. I just thought it was time for my character to go."

Carell also floats the possibility that The Office could continue without its clueless manager: "It doesn't certainly mean the end of the show. I think it's just a dynamic change to the show, which could be a good thing, actually."
