Mindy Kaling returning to The Office Season 9

Vulture reports that Mindy Kaling will return for The Office Season 9:

… Kaling and the producers of The Office have worked out a deal for the actress to return to the NBC comedy for at least two episodes of the show’s ninth season.

The Wrap reports more details:

“I think I’m going to be in the premiere, and maybe another episode,” [Mindy] said. “I got attached to that character. It’s fun to see what’s going to happen to Kelly.”

The overlap between “The Office” and “The Mindy Project” doesn’t end there: “Office” star Ed Helms will also appear on the new show’s premiere. And “Office” co-creator Greg Daniels will direct an episode of “The Mindy Project.”
