So long, Robert California.

James Spader, who plays the “enigmatic” CEO of Dunder Mifflin, will end his run on The Office after only one season, reports Variety.

Executive producer Paul Lieberstein explained, "James always wanted this to be a one-year arc, and he now leaves us having created one of the most enigmatic and dynamic characters in television. He's been a great friend to me and the show, helping us successfully transition into the post-Michael Scott years, and I'm grateful for that."

Between this news, reports of a Dwight Schrute spin-off, Mindy Kaling getting her own show on FOX, and Steve Carell’s end-of-Season 7 departure, is The Office dying a not-so-slow death?
