From the moment we met Mindy Lahiri 鈥 Mindy Kaling鈥檚 whip-smart, pop culture-obsessed doctor on The Mindy Project 鈥 it was hard to imagine the world without her. She taught us that best friendship is a tier, that there鈥檚 no shame in binge watching rom-coms, and that sour straws fix everything. Cut to Mindy and Danny on an airplane, a baby, a revamped practice, an unprecedented leap from Fox to Hulu, and a solid fifth season which ended on Tuesday. Now our girl is preparing to say goodbye.

It鈥檚 true: The sixth season of The Mindy Project, airing on Hulu in September, will聽be the last.

In conversation with Entertainment Weekly, Kaling says, 鈥淚 mean this half-jokingly, but at a certain point it was like, I think she鈥檚 dated every man in Manhattan. Sex and the City lasted for, what, six seasons with 10 episodes each? I don鈥檛 know that there鈥檚 been a show about a woman trying to find love in New York City that has lasted quite this long. And frankly, there鈥檚 no more actors in Hollywood left to date.鈥

It sounds like Kaling is ready to move on and to give her alter-ego some proper closure. 鈥淲e鈥檝e seen so much of Mindy鈥檚 dating adventures, and I love that, but we鈥檝e seen this character go through dating stuff a lot,鈥 she tells the magazine. 鈥淲e鈥檝e seen her be a mom, and we even had enough time to explore that. We started this series when she was single, and now she鈥檚 married and has a kid and she has a stepdaughter, and it kind of just felt like [a few] more episodes was all we needed to wind this down.鈥

We get it; all good things must come to an end, but we鈥檙e still going to have a Mindy-shaped hole in our hearts when it鈥檚 over.

Are you sad to see the series go? Let us know @BritandCo!
