The Farm is getting full.

The character — along with the previously cast Thomas Middleditch (The Campaign), Majandra Delfino (Roswell) and Blake Garrett (Bridesmaids), who will play Dwight’s brother, sister and nephew, respectively — will be introduced in an episode of the departing NBC comedy this fall. Should the network move forward with the Schrute-centric spinoff, all four would be series regulars.

The project, from former Office showrunner Paul Lieberstein, centers on Rainn Wilson’s Dwight and his kin inheriting a large family farm/bed-and-breakfast. When the quirky beet farmer decides to leave the paper biz and give the new venture a shot, he must convince his brother and sister to join him.

The Office returns for its final season Thursday, Sept. 20 at 9/8c.
