The Office’s” longtime employee Dwight Schrute, played by Rainn Wilson, is reportedly considering a change of scenery, for real this time.

While Dwight has been talking with his bosses about a transfer away from the Scranton office on the show, states that there are other forces afoot. The report states that NBC is mulling an “Office” spinoff starring Rainn Wilson for a potential midseason 2013 launch. The series would focus on his life on the beet farm and bed & breakfast.

The potential spinoff will reportedly be introduced in an “Office” episode later this season that set at Schrute Farms. The article cites a source close to the show who elaborates on what the new series would be about.

“At its base it will be about a family farm struggling to survive and a family trying to stay together,” the source said.

Deadline goes on to state that no deals have been signed and that even if a spinoff does come to fruition, it won’t necessarily mean that Wilson will leave the mothership anytime soon.

At least there is always Toby to pick on…
