The Office: Season 7 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Office: Season 7 (2010-2011)




Critic Consensus: While it struggles to answer how Dunder Mifflin will continue to thrive without Steve Carell's terrific performance, The Office sends off his Michael Scott in heartfelt fashion.

Tv Season Info

Three months prior to the premiere, NBC confirmed that Season 7 would be Steve Carell's last season headlining the cast (as Michael G. Scott, Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company's Scranton Branch). The season served to send off Carell in typical, hilarious fashion. Notable story lines from Season 7: Michael is compelled by his corporate bosses to undergo counseling, facilitated by his office nemesis, HR rep Toby Flenderson (Paul Lieberstein); Andy (Ed Helms), feeling jealous of a former college buddy's successful music career, starts an office band with warehouse foreman Darryl (Craig Robinson) and accountant Kevin (Brian Baumgartner); and, filmmaker wannabe Michael finally presents his action movie, titled "Threat Level Midnight," to Holly (Amy Ryan) and the rest of the staffers (this, after he spent 11 long years of writing, filming, re-filming and then re-filming again). Season guest stars include: Ricky Gervais, Timothy Olyphant, Will Arnett, Ray Romano, James Spader, and Jim Carrey.

Critic Reviews for The Office: Season 7

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (18)

It takes a lot of smarts and talent to play the perfect doofus -- which means Steve Carell just might be the most intelligent guy in Hollywood.

Top Critic

There were great moments, particularly in Michael's relationship with his girlfriend Holly and in his colleagues' rallying to say goodbye, but there were a lot of bad moments, too. A guest arc from Will Ferrell was both distracting and limply written.

Top Critic

Zippy and fun and packed with quotable punchlines.

February 24, 2020 | Full Review…

There's no accounting for which vision of existence is more accurate, or has more artistic merit -- life is boring, great, and awful at times. But the British office was mean where the American office is nice. And that's better.

February 24, 2020 | Full Review…

The Office is at its best when it has one foot planted in reality and the other drifting off into the absurd.

February 24, 2020 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

We've seen signs that the show can go on without Michael, but not if those behind the scenes ruin it by overcompensating with stunt casting gone wild.
