Steve Carell by Jeffrey Mayer/ Steve Carell by Jeffrey Mayer/

Steve Carell took some time out at the premiere of his new movie Horton Hears a Who! to chat about The Office's much-anticipated return. Filming on the NBC hit resumed March 6, and six episodes will round out this post-strike season. When asked about upcoming plotlines, Carell remarked, "The first [returning] episode is the one that was written previous to the strike. It involves Michael Scott having a dinner party for some of the couples in the office - and obviously things go terribly awry."

Another bonus for Office fans, courtesy of Carell: The season finale will be an hour long. The Office returns April 10 at 9 pm/ET. - Summer Brooks
