As NBC slowly prepares itself for life after The Office, the network is putting the pieces into place for an eventual spin-off of the show starring Rainn Wilson. Tentatively titled The Farm, this show will focus on Dwight Schrute inheriting a bed-and-breakfast and asking his family to help him run it. And now, according to TV Line, the studio has pegged Majandra Delfino to play Dwight’s sister, Fannie.
The character will be introduced in an episode of The Office this upcoming season in order to get viewers acclimated to her. The site is also reporting that Blake Garrett will join The Farm as Dwight’s nephew, Cameron. Casting is ongoing, so you can expect the rest of the Schrutes to be revealed in the coming weeks.
