Tv Season Info

As the sterling mockumentary opens its sixth season, the Dunder Mifflin staffers are gossip girls and guys. When they share gossip about the summer interns, Michael (Steve Carell) feels left out of the fun chatter and desperately goes hunting for the next big rumor to spread. Meanwhile, opposite-sex issues rattle Andy (Ed Helms). Later in the season, The staffers travel to the lovebird capital, Niagara Falls, to celebrate the nuptials of Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer). The big event does come with one caveat, however: no one must mention Pam's pregnancy. Other noteworthy plot lines include: Dunder Mifflin's buyout by Sabre, a Florida-based conglomerate headed by hard-nosed CEO Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates); the arrival of Jim and Pam's first child, Cecelia Marie "CeCe" Halpert; and a whistleblower scandal that rocks the Scranton office, and threatens to destroy the parent company.

We've never seen that facet before, and we're certain we don't like it, either.

Top Critic

Funny, and infinitely watchable, but somehow a little disjointed and lacking.

February 24, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The formula is becoming bland.

February 24, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The reason that The Office continues to be one of the best shows on television is because we have come to know its characters so well over the course of the last six years.

February 20, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It was gratifying to see some social relevance, with the corporate structure of Dunder Mifflin, portrayed as an unstable company since the very first episode, in serious economic trouble.

August 30, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Outside of a few episodes and moments, this was a really frustrating year.
