That The Office spinoff featuring Rainn Wilson as Dwight Shrute won’t be moving forward after all. NBC had planned for Dwight’s character to lead a spinoff of the successful comedy series which is finishing up its run at the end of this ninth season, however Wilson says it’s a no-go right now.
 
Wilson, who’s one of the better celebs at keeping his fans in the loop via Twitter, posted a tweet confirming the news:

Farm Update: NBC has passed on moving forward with The Farm TV show. Had a blast making the pilot – onwards & upwards!”

The Farm would have centered around the Schrute farm and was expected to star Majandra Delfino, Matt Jones, and Thomas Middleditch.
