Bosses at the helm of the U.S. adaptation of The Office have dismissed reports the show's creator Ricky Gervais has filmed a guest spot in the final episode - insisting the show is far from over.
British tabloid reports claimed Gervais - who starred and wrote the original U.K. version - would make a cameo in the final episode of the hit American series.
It was rumoured he would play the unpopular office manager David Brent on whom Steve Carell's Michael Scott character is based.
However, executive producer Paul Lieberstein has laughed off the reports - and assures fans the show's final episode is a long way off.
He tells E! Online, "We love Ricky, but have not had any discussions about an appearance on the U.S. show.
"And we haven't given any thought to the final show because it is probably a zillion episodes away."
