Season 6 premieres September 12 on Hulu.

Co-showrunners Mindy Kaling and Matt Warburton confirmed on Thursday that Messina will be back as Mindy Lahiri's baby daddy and on again/off again love interest Danny Castellano.


Even though Danny and Mindy have both married other people, Warburton promises some "clarity" on where they stand with each other.


The one thing we can promise the audience is a little bit of clarity about where they stand. It's so great to see him back because we’ve always known they're always going to be in each other's lives … but it's great to actually see what that means this season.

AHHH! What does it all mean???


Kaling says, "It's complicated."

They're both married to other people, so we went into that season with all of that, which makes things sort of fun and delicious.

Is it September 12 yet?
