In spite of initial reports that Steve Carell would't be returning for "The Office" series finale on May 16, TV Line has reported otherwise.

Last week the show's executive producer Greg Daniels said in a conference call with reporters that Carell wouldn't be reprising his role as Michael Scott in the finale as his return could possibly overshadow the ending the remaining characters deserve.

But according to TV Line, Daniels's carefully crafted statement says a lot without really saying anything and could also be interpreted to mean that Carell will in fact return, but in a way that won't actually take over the ending of the show.

"According to sources, Carell’s return engagement qualifies as more of a cameo than a full-fledged guest appearance," TV Line wrote of the actor's role in the series finale.

So far, neither Daniels nor Carell have confirmed or denied TV Line's report.
