Though we've known for some time that the current season of 'The Office' would represent the final year for Jim, Pam and the other Dunder-Mifflin crew, some months ago development began on the Dwight Schrute spin-off 'The Farm,' to be aired as a backdoor pilot in 'The Office's final season. Somewhat sparingly, NBC decided not to go through with the Schrute-centric spin-off, but what of the material shot? New reports say NBC plans to give a fitting end to Dwight Schrute, using a modified version of 'The Farm' to do so. Find out the changes inside!

'The Office' still has a good deal of episodes to go in its final season, but nothing will change the fact that the show's upcoming 2013 run will represent the last of our time spent at Dunder-Mifflin. One point we've heard the final season will certainly set out to address is the role of the cameras themselves, which provide the documentary-style humor much of the series bases itself on. So, how will they play into the show's endgame? Series star Rainn Wilson offers up new details inside!
As 'The Office' prepares to head into its final run of episodes, finally closing the door on Dunder-Mifflin after nine years, we've been expecting a flurry of guest stars to come out of the woodwork. Mind you, we figured most guests would belong to seasons past, particularly one Steve Carell, but a Basketball Hall of Famer is just as good! So what could bring Julius "Dr. J" Erving to 'The Office's' final season, and what might it mean for Jim Halpert?
With a title like "Dwight Christmas" you have to figure that the writers were waiting to use that one for years, and since this is the final season of 'The Office,' what better time than now? The last episode "The Target" brought some resolution to the affair Angela's husband was having with Oscar, and Jim seems to be working half-time for the company now, so perhaps this episode will put the final pieces of the season into place.
Admittedly, we haven't paid much attention to 'The Office' alum Mindy Kaling's solo FOX sitcom 'The Mindy Project,' mostly only when former 'Office' co-stars drop by. The latest of which was Kaling's "Subtle Sexuality" partner Ellie Kemper, but now Kaling's most frequent 'Office' compatriot B.J. Novak has signed on for an appearance! Will Ryan and Kelly have a secret reunion? Find out Novak's 'The Mindy Project' role inside!
While many believe 'The Office' should have ended with Steve Carell's departure, or at least been put out of its misery following the poorly-received eighth season, there's no stopping now that the show has officially declared the current season to be the last. To that end, the series has plotted a number of resolutions to its longest running-arcs, but how will the series actually end? Series star Rainn Wilson has a few new details to offer, including a surprising twist!
After a Thanksgiving break, 'The Office' returns as we head into the final stretch for NBC's long-running comedy, which has been mostly meh this final season. Will the show go out with a bang or a whimper? At this point it's looking like the later, but the last episode ("The Whale") had its moments, and we're hoping "The Target" delivers.
The shock of 'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones' religious rant against the series likely won't die down for a good long while, but it seems Hollywood itself has already taken aim at skewering the young actor. Hilariously, Thursday ratings rival 'The Office' has taken one of the first jabs at Jones, enlisting stars Rainn Wilson and Craig Robinson to re-enact the bizarre video. Are you ready for 'The Office' to get filthy?
With 'The Office' coming to a close this year and practically hemorrhaging cast members, former castmate-turned 'The Mindy Project' star Mindy Kaling is in prime position to scoop them up. Not only does series boast occasional appearances from 'Office' vet Ed Helms, but now Helms' on-screen love and fellow 'Office' star Ellie Kemper will pay a visit as well! Guesting in the series' Christmas episode, who might the 'Bridesmaids' star play when 'The Mindy Project holds an office party?
As 'The Office' makes its march towards concluding, we're hoping that they at least have some good treats in store for us in these last episodes. But so far their final season has been pretty rocky. Last week's episode "The Boat" at least moved forward the possible Erin/new guy Pete relationship, and was thankfully Jim-and-Pam-drama free. So we're hoping for good things from this week's episode, "The Whale."
