NBC Nixes The Office Spin-Off
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.
