Lots of upheaval behind the scenes at Dunder Mifflin Sabre Scranton. Paul "Toby" Lieberstein is stepping down as Showrunner (shar.es) to shift his focus to the Dwight spinoff The Farm. Plus the article notes no deals are set yet for John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Ed Helms to return for season 9. And we know James Spader is out. Plus Mindy Kaling could also be leaving if her FOX show gets picked up for the fall.

"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
