“The Mindy Project” Season 2 Promo

The promo for season 2 of The Mindy Project features guest star James Franco as a handsome doctor and Mindy’s replacement at the clinic while she is off in Haiti (she left for Haiti at the end of season 1 with boyfriend-of-the-week Casey, a pastor played by Workaholics‘ Anders Holm). Mindy is back from her trip and still sporting the boyish, pixie cut she gave herself at the end of season 1.

The Mindy Project has also cast Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), and Ben Feldman (Mad Men) to play Mindy’s love interests.

Unfortunately, this is exactly what I was hoping season 2 of The Mindy Project would avoid. Season 1 was plagued by a slew of short-term boyfriends who ate away at any screentime and character development that could have been given to series regulars like Dr. Reed (Ed Weeks) and Betsy (Zoe Jarman) – the receptionist. It looks like season 2 will be using the same formula as season 1 by bringing in more whitebread love interests for Mindy.

Not sure I’ll be tuning in.

Are you excited for season 2 of The Mindy Project?
