“The Mindy Project” season 4 finale ended with a major cliffhanger, and Hulu has created a neat stop-motion trailer that recounts the drama before the end. In this short video, Mindy (well, Mindy’s outfit, really) hooks up with the suit and tie of ex-fiancé Dr. Danny (Chris Messina) while stuck on an elevator. Sound familiar? Watch below.
Danny and Mindy’s love story has been a centerpiece of the show, and is a relationship fans liken “Cheers” mainstays Sam and Diane. It’s been a winding road for the two, from frenemies to lovers to parents of baby Leo, so it wasn’t a totally surprising turn of events when they split in the middle of Season 4, or when they hooked up in the finale…except for the fact that Danny is now engaged to another woman.
“The Mindy Project” was scooped up by Hulu last year for the 26 episodes of season 4 after Fox cancelled the show for lackluster ratings, despite critical acclaim and a loyal fan-base. The move to Hulu was something Kaling considered “a great opportunity.”
“The Mindy Project” Season 5 is set for premiere on Tuesday, October 4 on Hulu.
