As The Office finishes its final season, some big name are coming onboard to helm one of the last episodes. TV Line reports that Jon Favreau will helm an episode of the series later this season, though scheduling is still being worked out so it’s unknown exactly which installment he’ll direct. Throughout the show’s past nine seasons a number of famous directors have stepped in to helm episodes (Joss Whedon, J.J. Abrams, Harold Ramis, Marc Webb, Seth Gordon, Jason Reitman, Paul Feig, Bryan Cranston), so Favreau’s involvement isn’t entirely out of the ordinary. The Iron Man director has previous experience in the TV world, as he directed the pilot for NBC’s Revolution.

TV Line also has news about the now-defunct Dwight spinoff The Farm. The episode that was to serve as a backdoor pilot for the new series will still air as a part of the current final ninth season, but showrunner Greg Daniels revealed that they won’t be airing “exactly what it was.” Additional material will be shot in order to make the episode fit into this current season more.
