Niecy Nash Is Joining The Mindy Project as a Lesbian Nemesis and Just…So Much YES

We thought The Mindy Project was perfect. But we didn't know what we were missing...until now.

Niecy Nash has just joined The Mindy Project and her role is so amazing, that we can't believe it's actually real. But it is!

E! News has confirmed that the Reno 911! and Getting On comedy goddess will play Mindy Lahiri's nemesis this season. And here's the best part: She's a lesbian.

Seriously, so much yes about this casting.

Nash will play recurring character Dr. Jean Fishman, who is the new chief of Shulman & Associates' admitting hospital. She is described as a tough physician from Boston who is a take-no-prisoners type and puts up with no nonsense whatsoever.

And seeing as how Mindy is 100 percent nonsense (and we mean that in the absolute best possible way), expect these two to butt heads. We seriously cannot wait to watch it all go down.

And titular star Mindy Kaling herself can't wait, either! "So psyched the hilarious @NiecyNash will be coming to play Shulman & Associates work nemesis on #themindyproject!" Kaling tweeted of the casting news.

TVLine first reported this casting.

The Mindy Project returns for season three on Sept. 16 on Fox.
