Mindy Kaling might come back to The Office

Will Kelly Kapoor come back to terrorize Dunder Mifflin one more time? Mindy Kaling says yes, she hopes to make it back to Scranton before The Office ends for good in May.

"My schedule’s pretty tough but I would love to come back … I love The Office," she told Access Hollywood. "I feel like whenever I go there it’s like coming home."

"I don’t wanna like, miss out on the last moment … So [executive producer] Greg Daniels and I were talking this weekend and we’re gonna try to make it work so I can come back and do one."

Kaling — currently starring in her own show, The Mindy Project — will probably be the only alum to come back before it's all over.

NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt put the kibosh on a Steve Carell comeback, saying last week that the way Michael Scott exited the show was exactly the way he wanted it to end.

"I’m hopeful, but I don’t think [Carell] will be back," Greenblatt said. "He left in the way that he wanted that character to leave… There’s maybe a little Hail Mary pass on a cameo, but I think the decision is that he [doesn't want to compromise] his [original] exit."

Don't fret, fans: There's still plenty to love about the show — like adorable John Krasinski, for one. We'll be sad to see this one go, but it's time.
