TVLine has revealed that Niecy Nash will be joining the cast of The Mindy Project in season 3.
Nash's character, the new chief of Shulman & Associates' admitting hospital, Dr. Jean Fishman is "a tough Bostonian physician" who is a "take-no-prisoners type who puts up with no nonsense whatsoever.
For the past two seasons Mindy has only been the female doctor, trying to get her male cohorts to behave, but Nash will be brought in to spice things up.
Nash previously starred in the Comedy Channel's Reno 911 and joins the show after wrapping up on HBO's Getting On.
The Mindy Project returns to FOX on September 16.
