However, a deal has yet to be worked out for original cast member and Office executive producer B.J. Novak (Ryan Howard), who wrote and directed the season eight finale.

Helms, Krasinski and Fischer had been sought to return due to the departures of James Spader (Robert California) and Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor), who is leaving to star in and executive produce Fox comedy It's Messy.

Rainn Wilson and current Office showrunner Paul Lieberstein are also expected to leave for upcoming spinoff series The Farm, which sees Wilson's character Dwight Schrute run his family's bed and breakfast.

Despite the many changes, NBC is still expected to renew The Office for a ninth season.

Fischer previously claimed that the entire cast is "really excited to come back" for new episodes.
