TVLine has learned exclusively that original Mindy Project castmember Zoe Jarman, who plays naive, confidence-challenged receptionist Betsy Putch on the Fox comedy, will not be returning as a series regular in Season 3.
A show spokesperson confirmed the news, but noted that Jarman “has been asked to guest star, so it’s possible that fans will see her next season.”
Since its launch two years ago, The Mindy Project has made a number of casting tweaks – so much so that Jarman was one of only four remaining original series regulars (joining Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina and Ed Weeks).
Thoughts about Jarman’s departure? Should Shulman & Associates introduce a new full-time receptionist next season, or pull a Murphy Brown and bring in a new temp every week?
