With a rating of 9.8 on IMDb, the Office ended on a high on its last episode, tied with “Goodbye, Michael”, as the highest-rated Office episode. The episode saw the end of the romantic arc of Dwight Schrute and Angela Martin, with both of them getting married.
Being one of the most popular and beloved shows to date, the Office still gets a high number of viewers, even though it ended almost a decade ago. Peacock has exclusive rights to stream the show, but the Office continues to exist on television by having reruns on Comedy Central.
The last episode also saw the return of the main protagonist Michael Scott played by Steve Carell, who left the show in season 7.
Fifty Shades away
Mainly known for her performance in the Fifty Shades franchise, she was 23 when she played Anastasia Steele. While describing her experience with the franchise, she said doesn’t regret it, but called it ‘psychotic’.
But like any other actor, she has tried to move on to different projects such as Luca Guadagnino‘s Suspiria remake and Marvel’s Madame Web, which is in pre-production. She appeared as an adult for the first time in the movie Social Network in 2010.
Dakota Johnson in the mix
With emotions running high for the cast and fans, it is always difficult to blend in and not feel out of place, and Dakota Johnson was no exception. Playing as Dakota in the Office, she replaces Kevin Malone in the accounting department, played by Brian Baumgartner, who was fired from Dunder Mifflin.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, she described how got to working with the cast of the Office, she stated:
“I somehow got myself into being in the series finale of ‘The Office’ because I was a fan of ‘The Office,’ of course…. I’m in it for like, three minutes and I spent two weeks on that set”
Considering the impact the show had, the last episode was well anticipated, so the pressure would make anyone nervous and Dakota Johnson felt it too, she expressed:
“I felt like I was crashing someone’s birthday party when they actually didn’t really mean to invite me….. like they did it just to, ‘yeah sure, come!,’ and then I was stuck there.”
But on the bright side, Dakota Johnson said she got to meet Rainn Wilson and she still runs into him in planes.
