It’s the beginning of the end for The Mindy Project.

The actress posted a photo of her character, Mindy Lahiri, writing, “We back. Day 1 of shooting the final season of #TheMindyProject.”

During a prior interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mindy shared that everyone is “really excited about this last season.” She said:
“What’s weird is, Mindy is married at the end of the season 5 finale, but 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. 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. And really, we’ve put her through the ringer.”
The 38-year-old also opened up about the reasons behind calling it quits after six seasons. She said:
“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.”
The Mindy Project will resume on Hulu this fall. If you’ve missed any episodes, all five seasons are currently streaming on the service.
