Dwight or wrong… Majandra Delfino will be returning to television on a spinoff of The Office…
31-year-old Venezuelan actress, who gave birth to her first child earlier this summer, has been cast as Rainn Wilson’s character Dwight Schrute’s sister on the highly anticipated The Office spinoff, which will be introduced in an future episode of NBC’s longtime comedy later this season.
Entitled The Farm, the spinoff will show Dwight living at the Schrute family beet farm and bed & breakfast.
Delfino will play Fannie Schrute, Dwight’s younger sister who once fled the Schrute farm life for Boston but has returned home, divorced and with a child.
The Farm was conceived by Wilson and former Office executive producer/showrunner Paul Lieberstein.
Delfino has previously starred in Roswell and ABC Family’s State of Georgia.
