John Krasinski to Leave The Office After Season Six

John Krasinski Is Leaving The Office: Oh Noez!

I know I've been complaining a bit about how smug Jim Halpert has gotten these days, but I didn't mean I wanted him to leave Dunder Mifflin! John Krasinski has confirmed that the current season of The Office will be his last, so he can take time to focus on movies and his career as a director.
