The actor seemingly denied reports last week that a new show centring on the Dunder Mifflin employee could air in early 2013.
Speaking at the SAG Awards yesterday (January 29), Wilson teased that NBC bosses were still "mulling over" the idea and even suggested a setting for the series.
"We are talking about a Dwight spinoff. It could be really cool," he told E!. "It would be on his farm which would be a bed-and-breakfast and have a crazy menagerie of characters.
"It would be even more far-out than The Office. We're talking about it. It's a good idea. We're mulling it over."
Asked to recall his first thoughts on the project, Wilson joked: "[I said] that is the worst idea I've ever heard in my life! Spinoffs never work! Don't people know that?
"Why would people think that would ever work, especially for a character as annoying as Dwight Schrute?"
Plans for a spinoff were first announced back in 2008, but failed to come to fruition.
