Earlier this year, news broke that NBC was planning a spin-off series based on the Rainn Wilson performed Dwight Schrute character from The Office. Tentatively titled The Farm, Wilson took to his Twitter account today to reveal that plans were scrapped – “NBC has passed on moving forward with The Farm TV show. Had a blast making the pilot – onwards & upwards!” he said.
As The Office winds down it’s ninth and final season, NBC’s intention was to introduce the series as a backdoor pilot in a later episode. Whether or not the pilot will still air is unknown. As for now, it seems like The Office franchise will end with this season. [ComingSoon.net]
