Hit comedy The Office may be ending after its ninth season, but talks of a spinoff are still underway.
Rainn Wilson is slated to have his own spinoff for the character Dwight Schrute, titled The Farm, and The Hollywood Reporter says that Thomas Middleditch, a sketch comic for Funny or Die and College Humor, has been cast as Dwight’s brother, Jeb.
The potential spinoff, according to Rolling Stone, stars Wilson as Dwight, who is now a beet farmer and owner of a bed and breakfast. Middleditch plays his “happy-go-lucky” and “excited but not capable” brother, who has held jobs as a worm farmer, Bigfoot hunter and marijuana farmer.
Other cast members include Majandra Delfino as Dwight’s sister, Frannie, and Blake Garrett as his nephew, Cameron.
The pilot episode of The Farm will debut as an upcoming episode in season nine of The Office, which premieres September 20 on NBC. Middleditch also appears in The Campaign, which stars Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis.
