The Office Season 9 Photos Have Dunder Mifflin Staff Dealing With Workplace Bullying

In just a couple of weeks, The Office's final season will kick off, and based on the episode titled, "Workplace Bullying," it sounds like the Dunder Mifflin staff will be dealing with another social issue in the workplace. I have a feeling we're going to really miss Michael Scott in this episode. Check out the photos ahead and see if you can figure out some of the plot for the season premiere!

Dunder Mifflin has dealt with sexual harassment before, and racism. From the photos released for "Workplace Bullying," which is set to air September 20, it looks like Toby will be leading a workshop (or a really soft-spoken lecture) on workplace bullying…

Was someone bullying Toby? Or is this just a required lecture because he's the H.R. rep? Either way, it won't be the same without Michael Scott's wall of photos (including the Big Tom Hanks/Robert Loggia photo, which I'm pretty sure made numerous appearances).

The topic of bullying makes me think/hope Jim has something in mind to torment Dwight, tied in with bullying (perhaps accusing Dwight of being a bully).

The photos also include Dunder Mifflin newcomer, played by Greek's Clark Duke.

I can't wait to see how Duke and Rainn Wilson are together on screen. I think they'll either get along really well or be at odds with one another. Either way, Duke's really funny, so I have high hopes for this new character.

Check out the rest of the "Workplace Bullying" photos in the gallery below. Among them is one with Creed and a guitar...
