NBC Nixes The Office Spin-Off

by at .

The Farm has been shut down.

Rainn Wilson Tweeted today that his Office spin-off - which would have followed Dwight Schrute and his family on a farm they inherited - will not move forward after all.

"NBC has passed on The Farm TV show,” the actor wrote. “Had a blast making the pilot — onwards and upwards!”

Members of the Schrute family have already been cast and the sitcom will air the "backdoor pilot," in which we meet these relatives, as a standalone Season 9 episode.

The Office concludes in May.

    Thank god. Retire these characters already. Loved The Office but it's running on fumes now. Writers, give it all you've got this last season and then let's all be done with it.
