Dwight Schrute
The Spinoff?

Will they or won't they? That seems to be the question in regard to The Office buzz that there's a Dwight Schrute spinoff in the works. Read on to find out what we've learned.

The deets being dished are that NBC is in the process of putting together a spinoff centering around The Office's, Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson).

According to a report from Deadline, the Dwight Schrute spinoff would launch midseason in 2013, with the focus being on the Schrute family beet farm and bed and breakfast.

That means lucky fans would get the chance to see more of Dwight Schrute's life outside the walls of Dunder Mifflin, which has been explored over several episodes of The Office in the past.

The report also goes on to say that the spinoff will be "introduced" on an episode of The Office later this season.

Yes, word is it will come to us from the Schrute Farms.

Rainn Wilson and Paul Lieberstein would executive produce the potential spinoff with Ben Silverman, who has been helping in the development process.

With The Office experiencing a slip in the ratings since Steve Carell's exit, it seems fans have had a hard time accepting the changes in the show, which included the introduction of James Spader and, of course, Andy Bernard as manager.

Apparently, fans of The Office are creatures of habit. Does that mean they would or would not watch a Dwight Schrute spinoff?

"The Office" used to be the best comedy on TV. Now it's just a basic, run-of-the-mill series. It's good to watch on a marathon, but not run to right when it airs. I don't see a spin-off happeneing. Just let it fade away safely.
