Season Three of the Mindy Project is about to get even better, now that Fox has ordered six additional episodes of the half-hour comedy starring Mindy Kaling as the romantically-challenged New York City doctor Mindy Lahiri.
The Tuesday night comedy earned an average of a 1.6 rating in its current season, though Fox noted that ratings improve markedly when measured across 30 days and all devices. As a point of comparison, the hit show The Big Bang Theory scored a rating of 4.5 Thursday night.
The order for more from the the Mindy Kaling-led cast will bring the show to 21 episodes for this season, reports Entertainment Weekly.
This season fans are also due for a surprise. As E! Online reports, this season the show will introduce Alex, Mindy’s first sexual partner, played by Halt and Catch Fire star Lee Pace.
