Will Ferrell will be making his way to Scranton, just in time for Steve Carell's farewell.

Ferrell will appear in a multi-episode arc on NBC's veteran workplace comedy The Office this season as an inappropriate branch manager who arrives from the home office.

Ferrell's guest stint would mark a reunion with Carell as the two starred in Anchorman.

Carell announced last year that he would be exiting the series, and it was recently reported that he would be leaving before the season finale, most likely at some point in April.

Ferrell was a regular cast member on the network's Saturday Night Live. He also produces Eastbound and Down on HBO.
