Steve Carell has left the building — make that The Office.

After seven years on the NBC comedy, Carell, who played office manager Michael Scott, wrapped up his stint on the hit show to further pursue his film career.

The show’s storyline on Thursday’s swan song for Carell’s character saw Scott leave the Dunder Mifflin paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania to move to Colorado with his fiancée, Holly.

NBC has not yet announced who will replace Carell, but Thursday night’s episode ruled out guest star Will Ferrell as the one filling Carrell’s shoes. Meanwhile,  speculative replacements for Carell include Jim Carrey, James Spader, Will Arnett, Ray Romano and Ricky Gervais.

Carell, 48, essentially hits the ground running as an A-list comedy headliner at the box office, with hits such as The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Evan Almighty on his resume.

The episode ended with Carell’s character “breaking the fourth wall” — breaking character to let viewers in on the joke of the show’s documentary’s concept.

“This is gonna feel SO good getting this thing off my chest,” he said, giving his mic to an off-screen camera crew.

The Office airs on NBC Thursdays at 9/8c.
