Steve Carell looking to leave The Office

Steve Carell has said in an interview that the next season of The Office will “probably” be his last.

The American actor was on a BBC radio station promoting his latest film Date Night with Tina Fey when he was asked about his future.

“How long does your contract run?” asked the interviewer.

“Contract through next season,” Carell answered.

“And will you stay after that?”

“I don’t think so,” Carell answered.

“That will probably be my last year.”

Carell, who plays bungling boss Michael Scott on the US show, received a Golden Globe in 2006 for his role in the spin-off of the hit Ricky Gervais-created comedy.

US network NBC has not confirmed the news nor announced whether the show would continue without Carell.
