What to Expect:
Lots of crash-and-burn humor from Michael Scott (Steve Carell) -- but you knew that already. The season will open with a look at summertime at Dunder Mifflin, where a corporate weight-loss initiative inspires the Scranton crew to shed a few pounds -- and Michael to don a fat suit (see crash-and-burn humor, above). On the upside for the boss, new HR rep Holly (returning guest star Amy Ryan) still seems to like him. Pam (Jenna Fischer), meanwhile, is pursuing her art-school dream in New York, and Jim (John Krasinski) is missing her. Aww. Then there's the little matter of Angela (Angela Martin) and Dwight (Rainn Wilson) being caught in the act at the end of last season. Will Andy (Ed Helms) find out?
