A The Mindy Project Community
Tuesday 9:30 PM on Hulu

Emmy-winning actress Rhea Perlman is returning to a place where everybody knows her name... television!

The former Cheers star will recur on the third season of Fox's The Mindy ProjectTVLine reports. Perlman, who played grumpy barmaid Carla on the famed '80s sitcom, will play Danny Castellano's mother Annette on the Mindy Kaling-starring comedy.

Depending on Mindy's Season 3 storylines, the role stands to reunite Perlman with her former Cheers co-star Dan Hedaya, and may bring with it a bit of deja vu. Hedaya, who played Perlman's ex-husband on Cheers, appeared on The Mindy Project in Season 2 as Danny's dad—and Annette's ex-husband—Alan. 

Perlman most recently appeared on TV Land's Kirstie, which was also a Cheers reunion of sorts, given that Kirstie Alley plays the lead on that show. 


The Mindy Project Season 3 premieres September 16 at 9:30pm on Fox.

We already know what happened to this show, but we also already know what was the cause. I did not like the current number for the episode order of this show's upcoming season. but this is our good chance to fix this supporting cast right away.

Rhea Perlman looks like a good choice to be recurring guest of this show. But I was wondering in alternative that will she be added in this show as part of the main cast in order to help Beth Grant's character gain more relief? We'll find out by then.

Oh wow... perfect casting indeed. Hope they get the whole Castellano family - Danny, his parents, brother Richie (Max Minghella!) and little half-sister Dani - at some point. It'll be a riot!

The Mindy Project is set at an OB/GYN practice. Is Carla STILL getting pregnant every time the wind blows?

Rhea is like Beth, so maybe we should add Rhea in the main cast.
