In a past conversation with Yahoo! Entertainment, Oscar Nunez, who played the role of Oscar Martinez in the series recalled the day when they were shooting the episode Goodbye Michael, which was the episode where Carell left the series. He talked about how everyone on the set, including the Bruce Almighty star was emotional, to the point they were crying everywhere in between shots and even while filming them, and that it was truly an emotional moment in a series known for its comedy. He said:

“It was like, ‘Wow, the show’s over, and now we’re going to do another show without Steve,’ Someone’s going to come in and be the boss. The Office was over: Steve left, and now it’s another show. It was fun, meeting those people was great, but when Steve left, it was very sad. People were crying all over the place. It was very emotional.”

Not only did the cast experience an emotional roller coaster ride during the filming of the show but the audience was moved to tears after the episode was aired.

Why Is The Office So Popular?

While it may seem like just another sitcom, The Office is so much more than the description it has been given by the industry. One of the main reasons why this is such a popular show is because it deviates from the conventional take on a slapstick and satirical sitcom and focuses on its unique take on the off-the-wall cringe comedy.

On top of that, it still keeps some of the traditional aspects of a sitcom by creating a deep and lasting connection with its varied and memorable cast, which is an ensemble of quirky and unique characters that people fall in love with.
