The latest “The Mindy Project” season 5 spoilers revealed two exciting details that may change how the story of the Hulu romantic comedy series will eventually unfold.


With its season 4 finally airing its 26th and final episode on July 5, many fans might have been excited already as to what lies ahead for the well-loved characters. Here is a roundup of the latest “The Mindy Project” Season 5 spoilers!

According to TV Line, Chris Messina, who portrays the role of Dr. Daniel “Danny” Alan Castellano and love interest of Mindy Kaling’s Dr. Mindy Kuhel Lahiri, will no longer be regular cast member in “The Mindy Project” season 5.

The report dished that “The actor will, however, continue to pop in and out of Mindy‘s orbit, albeit as a recurring guest star.”

It was noted that while Danny started as Mindy’s fiancé at the start of the fourth season, he appeared “sporadically” since their engagement was called off in the mid-season premiere. And now he is “demoted” as an extra.

TV Line further pointed out that although Messina’s role has been mentioned constantly, “he’s rarely seen.”

It can be recalled that this is not the first time wherein changes have been implemented in the cast line up. “Mindy Project” season 1 actually saw the exit of Amanda Setton, Stephen Tobolowsky and Anna Camp.

In the meantime, USA Today reported that Dr. Jody Kimball-Kinney (Garret Dillahunt) has finally found a new girlfriend, or is it Mindy who has a new boyfriend?

Apparently, the first statement was right.

While the character of Kaling, who will continue to play the title role in “The Mindy Project” season 5, has been crushing on Jody, her feelings may not be reciprocated after all since he is already committed to Courtney (Maria Thayer) or Miss Sneezy.

In the meantime, the report further disclosed that in order to get herself through with her presentation, this week’s episode showed Mindy hitting the library and finding some “nerds.”

Keep posted for more “The Mindy Project” season 4 and season 5 spoilers!
