Whatever Happened To Fannie Schrute From The Office?

"The Office" Season 9 episode "The Farm" features Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) visiting family at Schrute Farms for his Aunt Shirley's funeral. Co-worker Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez) is asked to come with him and he observes some truly bizarre rituals, including stating simple facts about the deceased and firing a shotgun into the coffin to make sure they're dead. 

If you think your family's eccentric, you haven't seen the Schrutes. Oscar is surprised then when Dwight's sister Fannie shows up with her son Cameron (Blake Garrett Rosenthal). Not only is she conventionally attractive, but Fannie prefers the city to the country and writes poetry. However, when Aunt Shirley is revealed to have left them her farm, she decides to take it over alongside Dwight and Jeb (Thomas Middleditch).

"The Farm" was meant to be a backdoor spin-off, but NBC ultimately passed. Here's what the actress who plays Fannie, Majandra Delfino, has been doing since.

She's appeared in indie films and self-funded shows

Before her part on "The Office," Majandra Delfino was arguably most famous for playing musician Maria DeLuca on 61 episodes of "Roswell." After NBC decided not to make a spin-off focusing on the Schrute family in 2013, Delfino never returned to the Fannie Schrute character. Instead, she's continued to act in film and television. 

Playing the character of Andi, a married mom, Delfino was a regular cast member on "Friends With Better Lives" alongside James Van Der Beek and Zoe Lister-Jones. However, the show ultimately ended after 13 episodes because of low ratings. A few years later, she'd collaborate with Lister-Jones again in the music-centered indie comedy "Band Aid."

Since then, Delfino has largely stuck to similar indie projects like "Later Days," though she did have a small voiceover role on "BoJack Horseman" as Henrietta, the Horseman family's maid and the biological mother of BoJack's (Will Arnett) half-sister, Hollyhock (Aparna Nancherla). Delfino and her former "Roswell" co-star Brendan Fehr also created their own TV show, "Baron and Toluca," using fan contributions to fund the pilot. Speaking to Tell-Tale TV in 2022, the actress commented, "And we're the showrunners. Prior to this, there really was no proof except just our word that we can pull that off. And now, there's proof." Who knows? Maybe fans will get a full season of "Baron and Toluca" soon from an interested streaming platform.
