Starting from the second season, most episodes of The Office feature end tags. These were only occasional during the second season, then became a firmly established part of the show's format starting from the third season. During the latter half of the final season, they again became rare, as the show became more serialized.

Most of the times, end tags provide simple jokes, continuations or punchlines to jokes set up earlier (sometimes as early as the cold open), dénouements to the episode's plot, closures to minor subplots, talking heads with characters reflecting on the events of the episode, or scenes cut from earlier in the episode, in which case they don't even follow the rest of the episode chronologically. But on occasion, they become more significant, foreshadowing future events.

While end tags are easily identifiable while viewing episodes on TV (as networks often edit the episodes so that the end credits run over them) , they are more difficult to discern on DVD, where end credits run separately. In order to count as an end tag, the final scene has to be separated from the previous one by an act break.
