Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight on The Office, has revealed new details about the upcoming spinoff The Farm.
Posting on his Facebook page, Rainn had this to say about what is happening with the spinoff and what we can expect from the plot of the show:
Here’s the deal with ‘The Farm’ as there have been so many questions of late. We are shooting an episode of the Office entitled The Farm. It introduces Schrutes we’ve never met before- Dwight’s sister Fannie and her son Cameron who’ve been in Boston for 10 years, brother Jeb, a pot farmer, and (nazi curious) Uncle Heinrich. Also there’s Mose’s brother Zeke.
(note: we’ve assembled an AMAZING cast and I’m so thrilled to be working with them! I know that sounds cliche but it’s TRUE!)
This episode will be done soon and then NBC will decide if they want “The Farm” to be a series or not. Either way the episode will air as an Office episode in the winter sometime.
If we shoot more, they would start airing in the winter/spring probably.
The number of Office eps I do this last season is really dependent on what happens with The Farm. Definitely 12 or 13 and maybe more.
Wish us luck. See you at Schrute Farms!
Very interesting details indeed!
Are you excited to watch The Office episode and potentially the spinoff? As mentioned before, The Office will enter its final season this fall, so this may be our only hope to get more of our favorite characters back on television!
The Office’s final season premieres on September 20 on NBC.
