Office fans out there rejoice…Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) may be getting his own spin-off that would center around his family life and farm!

According to THR,

Reports of NBC eyeing a potential spin-off centered around Rainn Wilson’s quirky Dwight Schrute character are indeed true, according to a well-placed source. The idea would be to further explore the Shrute family farm, with multiple generations of Schrutes involved. The comedy concept could get a test of sorts on an episode of The Office later this season.

Wilson, along with actor/showrunner Paul Lieberstein and executive producer Ben Silverman, are believed to be involved, with Greg Daniels sitting out this iteration as he’s devoted to too many other projects at the network. Among them: his adaptation of British series Friday Night Dinner, which got a pilot order from NBC earlier this week.

I still miss Michael Scott and I feel that the show has not fully recovered from the loss…The Office will return with a 9th season but it needs a little something!
