When The Office ends next May, it looks like we’ll be saying goodbye to all of the characters after all. Plans for The Farm spin-off have been cancelled.
The new show would have followed Rainn Wilson’s Dwight at a Schrute family beet farm/bed and breakfast. The pilot also featured Majandra Delfino, Matt Jones, Mike Schur, Thomas Middleditch and Tom Bower.
Wilson broke the news via Twitter, writing, “Farm Update: NBC has passed on moving forward with The Farm TV show. Had a blast making the pilot – onwards & upwards!”
On the positive side, The Farm pilot will be shown as part of The Office’s current ninth season.
What do you think? Are you disappointed that The Farm won’t be a regular series? Would you have liked to see Dwight in a new setting or is it time for him to go?
