"The Mindy Project" is ready to give Dr. Mindy Lahiri her happy ending.
Hulu announced that the romantic comedy starring Mindy Kaling will return for a sixth and final season. The news comes just after the airing of the season 5 finale, which saw Mindy proposing to and marrying her nurse boyfriend Ben.
Kaling told Entertainment Weekly it felt like the right time to wrap up the series, which was picked up by Hulu after it was canceled by Fox in 2015.
"We started this series when she was single, and now she's married and has a kid and she has a stepdaughter, and it kind of just felt like [a few] more episodes was all we needed to wind this down," she said.
The final season will explore how Mindy approaches marriage. In the finale, as she takes the subway home with Ben and his daughter, Mindy has a rather pensive expression on her face.
"She has never been married in the series, so that's incredibly fun for a character who's been obsessed with [marriage] and has come close many times, and seeing her disavow it for a while after her disastrous breakup with who she thought was her soulmate," Kaling explained.
"And now she's married! The final season is the final time — it's the best time — to confront what that reality is for her."
