Mike Schur's Cousin Mose is heading to the "Office" spinoff.

Schur, the current "Parks and Recreation" showrunner and former executive producer of "The Office," will reprise his fan favorite role on "The Farm," TVLine reports.

Since Cousin Mose is Dwight Schrute's quirky relative and the "Office" spinoff focuses on the Schrute family farm, it seems fitting that Schur would pop up. But the mainly behind-the-scene man told TVLine there's another reason. "[Former 'Office' showrunner/current 'Farm' helmer] Paul Lieberstein is mostly the driving force behind keeping Mose alive because he loves torturing me," Schur said.

Cousin Mose may be the first Schrute family member we met, but he's certainly not the last. "The Farm" will introduce many more relatives, including Dwight's sister Fannie (played by Majandra Delfino), his brother Jeb (Thomas Middleditch) and another cousin Zeke (Matt Jones).

The Farm" will air later this fall.
