The Mindy Project Season 3 Adds a New Character

By April Lara | 2 years ago

The Mindy Project” Season 3 is underway, and Mindy Kaling, the main character and the executive producer of the show, has some details to reveal about Season 3. A new cast member is set to appear this season. Read on to find out the new member of “The Mindy Project.”

It was revealed during the Television Critics Association summer press tour 2014 that Emmy Award winner Rhe Perlman will play the role of Annette Castellano, Danny’s mother.


“The wonderful thing about the character is the trope of the mother-in-law type figure who doesn’t like the girl is so pervasive, it’s like ‘Ok, how do we do a new spin on this?’ As Danny has said, ‘I don’t know how to please that woman.’ So we haven’t ignored her own relationship with her two sons and her ex-husband. So we really explore a lot,” said Kaling, as published on TV Line.

The show will revolve around a new theme this season, which is “Annette Castellano Is My Nemesis.” It is said that the addition of this new cast member will reveal the differences between Mindy and Danny’s mother, and this is going to be challenging not only for Mindy but for Danny as well. We wonder how she’s going to handle this!

In fact, the first episode of “The Mindy Project” Season 3 is entitled “We Are a Couple, Bitches.”

Mindy’s ex-boyfriend will also appear in Season 3. What does FOX CEO and chairman Peter Rice say about this?

“I love ‘The Mindy Project.’ I think it’s really funny and smart. I think she’s a great show runner. I hope it continues to be written at the quality it has been, and I hope that it finds an audience. We have tried to construct a night now where we think it can bring a little bit more compatible flow to it, so my hopes are very high for it. I think it’s a terrific show, and she’s a great show runner,” said Rice as posted on Zap2it.
