The Office Spoilers: Kathy Bates Guest Role, Jim & Pam's Baby: Boy Or Girl?

Major shake-ups are on the way for The Office because of the corporate takeover at Dunder-Mifflin.

Kathy Bates will come in as the new CEO.

Boss Greg Daniels says:

“She’s a larger than life character. She has two giant Great Danes that accompany her to the office, and she’s very funny. Fantastic actress. We’re very excited to have an Academy Award person on the show.”

Also, Pam is scheduled to give birth in a two-episode arc that airs on March 4 and 11th.

What’s the storyline? Glad you asked.

Says Daniels:

“Part of the concept is that Pam is trying to hold the baby in until after midnight so that she can get the maximum time in the hospital, so the HMO will…If she comes in at 11:50, her first day is 10 minutes and then she gets 24 hours after that, so she’s trying to keep the baby in while she’s at work and trying to distract herself. That’s the plot of the first half-hour.”
