Ever since the departure of Steve Carell from 'The Office,' rumors have swirled that the series would either reboot, or close its doors entirely, particularly after the show struggled to find its footing absent its headlining star in season 8. Stars departed, a spin-off geared up, and now the verdict has officially arrived that 'The Office' season 9 will indeed be the show's last. But, will any major characters return? And what's the big twist?
Like it or not, 'The Office' spin-off 'The Farm' has just moved one step closer to reality. Earlier we'd read a bit about the potential characters that would populate the Dwight Schrute-centric spin-off, and now the series has moved forward in casting a few relatives of the agriculture-savvy paper salesman. Dwight's sister and nephew will first debut in an episode of 'The Office' season 9, but who nabbed the roles?
Who'd have thought that a scant 7 years after 'The Office' debuted on out TVs that everything could look so different? Not only has there been a tidal wave of departures after the show's first post-Steve Carell outing, but soon Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) himself may take off for greener pastures...literally.
We've heard a bit about NBC's plans to spin-off Rainn Wilson into his own series, but how would you like to know who'll be joining him on 'The Farm?'
