NBC is developing a spinoff of The Office. The show, set to premiere early next year, would be built around Dwight Schrute, played by Rainn Wilson. The spinoff would be introduced in an episode of The Office that will air later this season and would see Dwight head back to the Schrute family beet farm and bed and breakfast.
The show would not mean the immediate departure of Wilson from The Office, as he would return in the fall before segueing to the new series in mid-season.
