Novak Leaves Office: Twitter Reacts to Ryan Howard’s Departure

When writer/actor B.J. Novak leaves “The Office”, it will leave the beloved sitcom with just a handful of its original cast members. Truthfully, I gave up on the show quite a few seasons ago, and strongly feel that it probably should have closed for business when Steve Carell decided to ride off into the sunset. Still, the program has somehow managed to hang on despite all of its problems. However, with writer and co-star Mindy Kaling leaving for her own sitcom, and Rainn Wilson trotting off to do his own spin-off show, there’s very little hope for the show after this season ends.

Of course, that’s not to say Novak is gone for good. The guy will still serve as a consulting producer on the show, and will more than likely return every once in a while for a guest spot for two. Jon Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ed Helms, meanwhile, are still on-board for another season, though I’d say their days are probably numbered at this point.

In addition to the aforementioned departures, executive producer Paul Lieberstein, who also portrays Toby Flenderson on the show, is departing with Wilson to tackle that Dwight Schrute spin-off people have been talking about for ages. Hey, if the show can survive with Carell, a feat I honestly did not think was possibly, perhaps “The Office” will continue to kick right along for several more years. Then again, maybe not.

Of course, my issues regarding the show and its overall quality have little to no bearing on the world at-large. Here’s what really matters: Twitter users have decided to weigh in on the writer/actor’s departure. If you’re curious to know what other people are thinking — and you know that you are — take a look at the comments below.

    I was never a huge fan of the office but I don’t know anyone who actually enjoys watching it regularly or says its better. I’m sure they know they are in a tail spin and they are to the point where they have no regular viewers and more just people who are watching the channel when it comes on and don’t change the channel. They may putter along but I would say its time for that whole crew of people to find new projects. No Dwight spin off, or anything like that. All the actors are great and something new and great could come out of everyone trying new projects. As of right now they are just hanging on because some of the actors don’t want to look for new roles, and some are tired of failing on the big screen.
