Amy Ryan Returning to The Office

For those speculating about exactly how the staff of The Office is going to write Steve Carell off at the end of next season (presuming, of course, the show goes on without him), it looks like it's going to have something to do with Michael Scott's one true love, Holly (played by Amy Ryan). EW says that Holly will be back for a "sizable role" in the upcoming season, and quotes The Office's Mindy Kaling saying, "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. She’s definitely coming back." Michael and Holly — and the socially awkward babies they would have — forever. [Ausiello Files/EW via Movieline]
