Season 4 of Hulu’s The Mindy Project ended with Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) on the cusp of a reconciliation after reconnecting while trapped in an elevator. Seemingly ready to give their relationship another chance, Mindy was blindsided by a rather extravagant gesture from Jody (Garret Dillahunt), followed by him admitting that he was in love with her.
The finale ended with a close up shot of the wedding invitation Danny hesitantly mailed to Mindy earlier in the episode. So, now a few questions remain: 1) Will Mindy get back together with Danny – the father of her child, but who insisted she give up her career for the life of a stay-at-home-mom? or 2) Will she choose Jody – the old-fashioned southerner who underwent a major transformation over the course of season 4?
This new teaser trailer, which adorably uses stop-motion animation, recaps where Mindy and Danny left off, ending with an invitation to the new season of The Mindy Project, premiering October 4 on Hulu.
