'Mindy Project' teaser promises awkward romance for Danny and Mindy

The Mindy Project‘s second season ended in grand romantic-comedy style, as Mindy and Danny kissed—at the top of the Empire State Building, no less. While fans have had to wait several months to see the pair as an actual couple after the two professed their love for each other, Fox has released the first teaser of the third season, and it’s replete with all the awkward romance viewers should expect from the titular doctor.

In the sneak peek, Mindy and Danny are about to have sex for the first time, but, unsurprisingly, the night gets off to a less than ideal start as Danny can’t seem to stop talking, much to Mindy’s frustration.

The Mindy Project‘s third season debuts on Tuesday, Sept. 16, and with it comes a string of big guest stars including Scandal creator Shonda RhimesFargo‘s Allison Tolman, and Cheers’ Rhea Pearlman as Danny’s mother.

Mindy Kaling talks using tongue with Chris Messina, where Danny and Mindy's relationship could go next -- LISTEN

Using tongue isn’t something trained actors are encouraged to do, but as Mindy Kaling joked when she stopped by EW Morning Live on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105), she and her Mindy Project co-star Chris Messina are Method — “or we’re just perverts or whatever.” She breaks down Mindy and Danny’s cliffhanger airplane kiss in the interview excerpt below (Messina grabbing her butt was not scripted).

Asked if the characters join the Mile High Club, Kaling teased, “The attempt is made. I won’t say if it’s successful or not successful. I will say that it’s funny. And kind of hot, in its own way.”

She goes on to explain all the different ways the show, which returns with a one-hour spring premiere April 1 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox, could go with the duo in its third season this fall. Have a listen. And yes, we would totally watch them shopping at Costco. READ FULL STORY

We’ve been patiently waiting for our Shulman & Associates fix since January, but enough is enough.

Fox renews 'Mindy Project,' 'The Following,' more

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, and New Girl have all been renewed for new seasons, Fox announced Friday.

The network’s pickup of freshman comedy Brooklyn comes as no surprise, considering the Andy Samberg vehicle took a top prize at the Golden Globes in January, and both Mindy and New Girl, going into their third and fourth seasons respectively, were considered safe bets for renewal.

Fox has also renewed The Following, which will return for a third season.

“These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera,” said bosses Kevin Reilly and Joe Earley in a joint statement. “All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we’re really happy to bring them back to our FOX fans for another season.”

The news comes a little over a month after Fox announced the renewal of Bones for a tenth season. Sleepy Hollow and Glee are also set to return, with the latter going into its sixth and final season.

The fates of drama Almost Human and comedies Dads, Raising Hope, and Enlisted remain undecided. For more on their odds, check out EW’s annual TV Death Watch.

Mindy Kaling to guest judge on this week's 'Top Chef Masters' -- VIDEO

Fans of Mindy Kaling won’t have to wait for the return of The Mindy Project in September to catch her on the small screen. Kaling is set to guest judge on this week’s Top Chef Masters, challenging the chefs to create dishes inspired by — in true Mindy Lahiri fashion — her favorite romantic comedies.
