Alas, the end is near. This day was long coming, but it’s difficult to accept that it’s finally here. The Office had been filming its series finale over the past week and completed it over the weekend on Saturday, March 16. Of course there’s still a while before we see the end and it’s officially over, but for the cast, it was the last day on set and many of them Tweeted their goodbyes to the show as they completed filming.
If you’re a huge fan of The Office like me, then you’ll probably start getting a little misty-eyed when you read these Tweets. One of the strongest points of the show was how each character was made to be lovable in their own way. The many character dynamics made way for some great comedy throughout the years. Seeing it all end through the actors’ Tweets will be upsetting to any fan but imagine how much worse it’ll be when the actual episode airs.
I’m sure many would share Michael Schur’s sentiment as he Tweeted this during the last night of filming. Not only does he play Dwight’s cousin Mose on the show, but he’s also a writer and producer:
Today is the last day of shooting for The Office. Congrats to everyone who worked on it. Changed my life, and the lives of many many others.

Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight, told us what we all knew:
Getting ready to go to work at Dunder Mifflin for the very last time. It’s a sad day for comedy. And paper.

Ed Helms, who plays Andy, could barely get through the night:
Last day of shooting on The Office. Oof. Kind of hard to act and blubber at the same time. — Ed Helms (@edhelms) March 16, 2013
From there, it only got worse as other cast members Tweeted about the last day. Angela Kinsey, who plays Angela Martin on the show, posted pictures and videos of the final days, as she took home some things from the desk and goofed around with fellow cast mates, Oscar Nunez and Rainn Wilson:
The hilarious and clueless Creed Bratton had only this to say in the end:
Well I just heard this is our last day shooting.This is news to me.I’ve been memorizing this five page monologue. — Creed Bratton (@creedbratton) March 16, 2013
