the mindy project, season 4, hulu, midseason premiere, return date, mindy kalingAfter a months-long hiatus, "The Mindy Project" finally has a premiere date for the back half of its fourth season.

Mindy Kaling announced the show's return on social media this week, revealing that "TMP" would finally pick up again on April 12. When last we left Dr. Lahiri (Kaling) back in December, she had returned to her old apartment to measure a spot for baby Leo's crib, prompting speculation that she and babydaddy Danny (Chris Messina) were on the verge of a breakup.

Fans will have been waiting for more than four months to see the resolution to that storyline by the time the show returns, though since "Mindy" received a super-sized 26-episode pickup when it was saved by Hulu (after getting axed by Fox last year), it makes sense that it needed a longer hiatus to fill that order. Production was also complicated by Messina's involvement with Ben Affleck's next directorial effort, "Live By Night," which was shooting in Boston at the same time "Mindy" was filming back in Los Angeles.

We can't wait to see our favorite fictional OB/GYN again soon. Hurry up, April!
