Michael (Steve Carell) didn’t give us much information to go off of during his surprise appearance in The Office series finale so his future is unknown. He did, however, tell Pam about all of his kids and how he adores them. Michael even went as far as to emphasize how many pictures he’s taken of them by noting that he needs two phones to store them all — someone needs to tell him about the Cloud.
Today’s Michael Scott would likely still be married to Holly (Amy Ryan) and enjoying life as a husband and father. What he’d be doing for work is unclear but managing another office is right up his alley. Maybe he even returned to Scranton.
The whole reason Michael and Holly moved to Colorado was to be with her father during his final years. If he’s passed since then, they might choose to move back. Holly’s mother would have to go with them but the move is possible if circumstances have changed.
The only documentary subject whose wellbeing we’re somewhat concerned for is Toby (Paul Lieberstein). He gave us a reason to worry in the series finale after his comments suggested that he’d become extremely depressed. Toby mentioned that without the documentary crew filming his life, he felt like his life was meaningless.
While that has prompted concern for Toby, our hope is that he pulled himself out of his slump. A lot can happen in five years, of course, knowing Toby, he paid the Scranton Strangler another visit for some sort of catharsis which didn’t end too well.
Oscar ran for political office towards the series’ end, giving us reason to assume that he’s still doing the same thing. Mind you, there’s no guarantee he won the initial race. Oscar didn’t seem to have an entourage typical of a senator during Dwight’s bachelor party which may be a sign of his loss.
If he didn’t win, Oscar would probably attempt to run for another position of political office. That might be in Scranton or it could be a position based elsewhere. Oscar always seemed like a native to Scranton but moving is within the realm of possibility as well.
