The Mindy Project is back and is looking to be better than ever! Mindy Kaling still headlines the comedy show, but it’s been reported that this coming 4th season will have guest stars making appearances along with Mindy’s parents.
TV parents that is. Sakina Jaffrey is set to become Dr. Mindy Lahiri’s mother and Ajay Mehta as her on-screen father.

Jaffrey is famous for starring in television series such as Girls, Third Watch, and Sleepy Hollow, and House of Cards, while also having big screen roles in The Domino Effect, The Understudy, and The Nanny Diaries, among others.
Mehta, on the other hand, is a TV sitcom mainstay with roles in New Girl, 24, Law and Order, and Modern Family.
During the season 3 finale, the two new additions to the show were already hinted to show their faces in the coming season. However, news broke out that Fox cancelled the romantic comedy, upsetting the fans and creator Mindy Kaling.
“I just think there are more stories. I do think there’s more to tell, and I think fans would be disappointed not to see more adventures with these characters,” said Kaling after the cancellation.
Not long after, fans were once again jubilant as Hulu took over the production of the show. The online video service company already signed for 26 episodes of the TV show.
The guest stars confirmed to appear on the show are Dancing With the Stars host Brooke Burke and Freida Pinto who will both play themselves. Freida Pinto will star as a love interest for Chris Messina’s character, Danny.
Last season’s final scene featured Danny looking at the door of Kaling’s on screen parents. It won’t be soon before long that we, along with Danny, will finally be able to open that door and enjoy this new and improved version of the show.
