As first reported by TVLine, Pally's plan to exit the series after this season's 13th episode was reportedly set some time ago. The actor recently signed a deal with ABC Studios to produce projects for broadcast, cable and new media. He is expected to make return appearances to The Mindy Project as his schedule permits.

Pally first appeared on the series in a recurring role in Season 2, after the end of Happy Endings' three-season run. He was later promoted to a series regular.

The Mindy Project is no stranger to cast shakeups. Series regular Stephen Tobolowsky left after the series' eighth episode, followed by Amanda Setton and Anna Camp, who exited at different points in the middle of Season 1. Zoe Jarman departed after Season 2.
