Steve Carell hopes his exit from the US version of 'The Office' will be ''subtle'' and believes it was ''time'' he left the series

Steve Carell hopes to make a "subtle" exit from 'The Office'.

The actor has revealed his departure from the show - the US version of the hit UK TV programme created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant - is likely be a quiet event rather than a special episode dedicated to him.

He said: "I would be inclined to make it a more subtle and kind of simple departure as opposed to any big very special episode kind of thing."

The 47-year-old actor also revealed how he felt it was the right time to leave the comedy show and hopes it will be good for the series too.

He said: "I was always contracted for seven seasons, and I'm going to fulfil my contract. I just thought it was time. I'm ready to go.

"I just felt like it was time, and I think it might actually be a good thing for the show too. You switch around the dynamic of a show like that, I think it can be a really good thing and infuse it with a different energy. I think it's positive on all fronts."
