The Mindy Project - Season 6
On May 6, 2015 the series was canceled on Fox. On May 15, 2015, Hulu announced it had picked up the series for a 26-episode season 4, with the option of future seasons. On May 4, 2016, Hulu announced it had picked up the series for a 16-episode season 5, which was later reduced to 14. On March 29, 2017, The Mindy Project was renewed for a sixth and final season, which premiered on September 12, 2017. During the course of the series, 117 episodes of The Mindy Project aired over six seasons, between September 25, 2012, and November 14, 2017.
Looking back at season four, some viewers had issues with Danny because of his expectations on Mindy to stay home and have more babies. How concerned were you that viewers might be still holding onto those feelings now in season six?
Spoilers For The Mindy Project Season 6 finale ahead. The Mindy Project has been through many changes over six seasons, but this Tuesday marked the series finale. How does The Mindy Project Season 6 end? The rom-com sitcom, or romantic situation comedy, hits all the right notes while still managing to throw in a few surprises.
First of all, let's get this out of the way: Mindy and Danny end up together. Are you surprised? The episode is titled "It Had To Be You" and it had to be Danny. He's been the one for her, and she the one for him, from the very start of the show. Their romantic reunion is sweet, and low maintenance, and exactly what you'd expect from a couple with as much history as Mindy and Danny. Yes, if you're wondering, in the final season Danny did redeem himself and apologize for being a jerk.
Let's start with the two office romances that defined the final season. Jeremy's father dies, and he goes through an episode-long cockney rebellious stage in response to his "freedom" from the oppressive old man. Through all of that, Anna is right there with him, even though she clearly prefers the sophisticated (if occasionally foppish) man she originally met.
Some characters on The Mindy Project are long gone, like Gwen, Betsy, Shauna, Tom, and Dr. Shulman. However, a few characters returned in the final season. Adam Pally's character Peter, as always, popped in for some good times. His marriage still seems to be putting the fun in dysfunction. Cliff the lawyer is still practicing law, and spilled the beans to Mindy about Danny's divorce. Brenden hit a rough patch after his brother abandoned him, but everything worked out. Casey is married and starting a family. All is well all around.
According to Kaling, who was at the exhibit to support her friend and colleague, shooting the final season of the show is "getting a little sentimental and sad, actually. We have less than a month of shooting. So that's why Sal is pulling out all the stops for the last few episodes for costumes," she said.
The series quickly establishes that Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) and Danny are workplace enemies. As seasons pass, they become friends, fall for each other, get engaged, and even have a son named Leo. If Danny were any kind of worthy TV crush, things probably would have worked out with him and Mindy. But because he's a narcissistic Staten Island mama's boy with an ego the size of Italy, the two broke up in Season 4. His character was largely absent for the show's final two seasons, and for that I'm grateful.

Series creator and star Mindy Kaling and showrunner Matt Warburton confirmed Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that Messina will reprise Danny Castellano in the Hulu show's final season, according to TVLine.Advertisement
Messina starred as Danny, Mindy Lahiri's (Kaling) ex-fiancé and the father of her son, in Seasons 1 through 4, but appeared only as a guest star in Season 5. Danny married Sarah midway through the season, while Mindy wed Ben (Bryan Greenberg) in the Season 5 finale.
"The one thing we can promise the audience is a little bit of clarity about where they stand," Warburton teased, according to the The Hollywood Reporter. "It's so great to see him back because we've always known they're always going to be in each other's lives ... but it's great to actually see what that means this season."
Kaling said Mindy's marriage to Ben will play a big role in the season, with the character discovering "the reality of marriage" and learning "what lives up to the expectations and what didn't." She also hinted Mindy may end up in a surprising place.
"I think that all of us would agree that we do have 'happily ever after,' the connotations of it, that everything is tied up neatly in a bow, is something we aren't super interested in," the actress said. "That side of it I think we're trying to avoid, while also leaving the audience with the sense of feeling that it was about something and that it really was a project and that she had some growth in the end."
The Mindy Project co-stars Ed Weeks, Ike Barinholtz and Tamra Webb, and will return for a final season Sept. 12 on Hulu. Modern Family star Julie Bowen will guest star as "a rival mother" in the season.
Mindy Kaling's The Mindy Project ended in 2017 after six incredible seasons, but fans of the show can't stop re-watching to find hidden Easter eggs, create theories, and yes, even catch some head-scratching continuity errors.
We saw Mindy on her quest for love and how her role changed once becoming a mother. We also saw her thrive as an OB-GYN and woman of color in the medical field. Mindy Lahiri could do it all and wasn't afraid to make mistakes along the way. However, over the course of six seasons, fans noticed some errors in the writing, characters, and beyond. Keep reading to see 10 continuity errors in The Mindy Project.
In the first season in "Mindy's Birthday," Mindy claims to be 28 years old but by season four ("The Departed), Mindy says she's 27 years old. Is Mindy this afraid of age or did the show get sloppy with age continuity?
In the first season's "Danny Castellano Is My Gynecologist," Mindy puts Danny to the test of being her gynecologist. The whole thing unravels after Mindy opens her gown and Danny walks out. But later in Season 2 when Danny becomes her personal trainer, the two have an awkward encounter in the sauna, and they both freak out about being nude. But they've already seen each other in the buff, so why panic?
Mindy is a social woman with many friends, but Gwen seemed to be her best friend. Even after Gwen gets married and becomes a mom, Mindy learns to include her daughter, and still has a close relationship with everyone. But as seasons go on, Gwen disappears. Mindy slowly starts only hanging out with her co-workers, and we watch her dating life fall apart and come together again. But what happened to Gwen? What happened to Mindy's relationships with the people outside of the office?
Another continuity error revolves around Danny's relationship with Jillian (aka Eyepatch Girl). Apparently, their relationship was supposed to happen much earlier in the season, but the network shuffled episodes around, which messed with important continuity aspects.
Back in the first season, Seth Meyers portrayed Matt in "Hiring and Firing," in which Mindy and Danny go head-to-head over hiring a new nurse, but later in "Will They Or Won't They," Seth Meyers actually portrays himself. Were writers expecting viewers not to notice Seth Meyers twice in a series? Why not just have Seth play Matt, and leave it at that?
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Fox has passed on bringing back the critically acclaimed but low-rated series for a fourth season, with studio Universal Television now in talks with Hulu for a multiple-season renewal for the Mindy Kaling romantic comedy.
Never much of a force in the ratings, The Mindy Project boasts a steady performance. It's showing during the 2014-15 season lost little steam from the year before, averaging a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 and 2.9 million viewers (with time-shifting).
In its three-season run, Mindy Project has always lived on the bubble. Originally greenlighted under former Fox president Kevin Reilly, Mindy factored into the executive's niche comedy brand that, under new Fox bosses Dana Walden and Gary Newman have since abandoned in favor of a broad approach to comedy offerings. 041b061a72
