In just a few weeks time we'll be back in the swing of fall TV, and ready to answer all of the burning questions left by fall's biggest cliffhangers. 'The Office' in particular faces an uphill year, hopefully reclaiming some of the show's goodwill in its final season that was lost in last year's post-Michael Scott outing. But with so many new and old developments crowding 'The Office' season 9, what big twists are in store? Who's getting married, and whose relationship might it threaten?

Through eight seasons of 'The Office,' comings and goings of cast and crew alike, one mystery has always remained throughout the series. No, it's not the identity of the Scranton Strangler, but rather what the deal with Cousin Mose was! Now that Dwight Schrute is potentially moving into his own spin-off 'The Farm,' will Mose take a larger role in the series? Or will real-life duties limit Mike Schur's involvement with the spin-off?
While we're still not sure we even want 'The Office' to spin-off Dwight Schrute into 'The Farm,' it's starting to look like NBC would disappoint more and more actors if they didn't go through with it. Last week 'The Farm' had made its most intriguing casting yet by picking up 'Breaking Bad' player Matt Jones, but the latest is poised to steal the show with his eccentricity. Meet Dwight Schrute's great uncle Heinrich Manheim, but what 'Die Hard' vet nabbed the role?
While we're now deathly afraid for Matt Jones' lovable 'Breaking Bad' breakout Badger, 'The Office' spin-off 'The Farm' will trade crystal meth for beets in the casting of its latest series regular Matt Jones. 'The Farm' picked up quite a bit of steam this week in casting the various members of the Schrute clan, despite the fact that 'The Farm' isn't yet picked up to series. Will Jones be the teenth that breaks NBC 's back? And who will Badger Jones play?
Announcements about 'The Office' spin-off 'The Farm' seem to be under an entirely different light, following the earlier reveal that 'The Office' season 9 would close the door on the long-running mockumentary series. We still don't have it cemented on paper that 'The Farm' will go to series, a decision to be made after 'The Office' introduces the cast and concept in a season 9 episode, but for now the Schrute clan has added one more. So who nabbed the role of Dwight's brother Jeb?
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?
Walter White may be all about the work these days, but let's hope that 'Breaking Bad's better half Bryan Cranston leaves that grim attitude behind when he drops by Scranton, Pennsylvania to hang out in 'The Office.' Before shooting the final eight episodes of 'Breaking Bad,' Cranston will first take up directing duties for 'The Office' season 9, but what episode will he cover? Is Dunder-Mifflin getting into the meth trade?
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?
No, it isn't yet the long-awaited day when Steve Carell announces a guest spot on 'The Office,' but familiar faces are always fun. Especially considering the myriad of departures and new characters being added to the cast, we'll take what we can get! David Denman will be reprising his role as Roy, Pam's ex-fiancee, but for how many episodes? And in what shape is the character now?
For those still worried about 'The Office' season 9, what with its ever-diminishing array of stars following the departure of James Spader, show-runner Paul Lieberstein, Mindy Kaling, and eventually the reduced presence of both B.J. Novak and Rainn Wilson, there's good news! In addition to a finalized deal for Clark Duke to join the series, 'The Office' season 9 has just picked up yet another fresh-faced regular in actor Jake Lacy. But, who will the former 'Better With You' star play?
