The Mindy Project is back for its sixth and final season. The show, which Mindy Kaling writes, directs, and stars on will feature an appearance by an Oscar-winning actress, and the return of fan favorite and Mindy’s baby daddy, Danny.
Mindy and Danny (Chris Messina) were engaged at one point, and they had a son together. But, the two OB-GYNs ended up breaking off their engagement in Season 3 and went very separate ways. Danny married Sarah (Greta Gerwig). And, at the end of season five, Mindy surprised everyone when she married Ben (Bryan Greenberg).
Fans of the show will not find it shocking that Mindy’s quickie marriage to Ben doesn’t last. And, a post from the set of the show has some fans hoping that Mindy and Danny are possibly getting back together.
Kaling posted a photo of the former co-stars in what appears to be a law office with the caption “annoying each other again.” With one simple photo, Kaling has sparked questions about what the two could possibly be doing back together. Is Danny helping Mindy get a divorce? Are they in a custody battle?
Fans will have to wait and see, but don’t expect every storyline to be completely resolved. Kaling told TV Line, that “tying everything in a bow” is not a top priority. She does, though, want to show that her character has grown during the past six seasons.
The final season of The Mindy Project is also getting its biggest guest star to date – Reese Witherspoon! The Oscar winner and Kaling’s A Wrinkle In Time co-star will pop up in Episode 7. Kaling recently teased her appearance with another photo on Instagram.
“Our latest #themindyproject guest star is the only woman I would want to be trapped in a cave with. (This is weirdly the second cave we have acted in together!) @reesewitherspoon.”
The question of what Witherspoon is doing on the show, and the questions surrounding Danny’s return will finally be answered.
The final season of The Mindy Project premieres on Hulu, September 12.
