We’ve known for months that “Office” favorite Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) was getting a spinoff series on NBC, but now we know that Dwight’s family will be joining him as well.
“Roswell” star Majandra Delfino has been cast to play Dwight’s sister Fannie, while Blake Garrett will play his nephew Cameron, according to TVLine. The two characters will have regular roles in the show, currently called “The Farm,” with Delfino’s character being described as a “pseudo-intellectual lefty” who left the farm for Boston.
Both characters will be introduced on an episode of “The Office” this season.
“The Farm” will center around Dwight’s work as a beet farmer while running a bed and breakfast.
