“They didn’t call him and say, ‘What? You wanna leave?’ He said he didn’t get any kind of response from them,” Wittle recalls. “When he realized he didn’t get any kind of response from them, he thought, ‘Oh, maybe they don’t really care if I leave. Maybe I should go do other things.’ ”

Steve Carell made his name on The Office U.S. but opted to leave the show after seven seasons . Here's why Steve Carell decided to leave The Office after seven seasons . The series has never really gone away, however, thanks to its enduring popularity on Netflix.

Steve Carell , who played the character on seven seasons of the NBC comedy, has dismissed the idea of appearing on a reboot of the show, even though former cast member Jenna Fischer and the show’s executive producer, Stephen Merchant, have at least joked about the idea of a revival.

“He told his manager and his manager contacted them and said he’s willing to sign another contract for a couple years. So all of that was willing and ready and, on their side, honest,” says Ferry, 51. “The deadline came for when they were supposed to give him an offer and it passed and they didn’t make him an offer. So his agent was like, ‘Well, I guess they don’t want to renew you for some reason.’ Which was insane to me. And to him, I think.”

“Somebody didn’t pay him enough,” casting director Allison Jones claims. “It was absolutely asinine. I don’t know what else to say about that. Just asinine.”

Carell’s departure came right around the time Bob Greenblatt replaced Jeff Zucker as chairman of NBC Entertainment. Both spoke with Greene for the book, with Zucker, 54, saying, “I vaguely remember having conversations [with Steve about staying], but I don’t remember any details around it.”

“I can’t remember the sequence of events, but I think Steve was already departing the show when I arrived,” Greenblatt says. “I couldn’t do anything about that since it preceded me.”

Producer Teri Weinberg says she thinks Carell “made the decision to leave on his own” and that executives, including Greenblatt, “would’ve wanted to have Steve” stay on.

“But I think he felt like he had seen his character progress in a way that was incredibly satisfying to him,” adds Weinberg, 59. “And he felt that it was time and the story had taken him to a place where the character was ready to make that move, and we respected that.”
