In the Halloween-themed episode, Andy discovers that Rob is rewriting the group's history and stirring up drama, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Colbert and Helms have previously worked together on The Daily Show.

Office guest star Jack Coleman recently spoke to Digital Spy about an expected return for his character Senator Rob Lipton.

Admitting that he hopes the role goes down a more "salacious" path, Coleman said: "I don't want to play earnest. I'd rather play somebody who's kind of sleazy. It's much more fun, especially in a comedy."

The Office begins its ninth and final season tonight (September 20) at 9/8c on NBC.
