Though NBC’s long-running comedy series The Office is coming to an end after this season, some fans were comforted by the fact that a spinoff centered on Rainn Wilson’s Dwight character was in the works, providing hope for more Office-related material once the show had come to an end. Well, it looks like the series finale of The Office really will be the end after all, as Wilson revealed today that NBC decided to pass on the pilot for the spinoff series The Farm. Hit the jump for more.
It looks like Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) is ready to step out of The Office and resume his life on The Farm. The spin-off show will get a chance in front of audiences during the upcoming ninth season of The Office before being greenlit for an entire season. The Farm centers on the Schrute family, who has inherited a combination farm/bed-and-breakfast. In order for Dwight to profit from this windfall, he must first convince his brother and sister to help him out. New casting details are now available for The Farm, which you can check out after the jump.
