As if she didn’t have enough problems, it looks like Mindy will also have a “work nemesis” to worry about in the upcoming season of “The Mindy Project.”

Niecy Nash of “Reno 911!” fame has joined season three of the Fox sitcom in a recurring role, our sister site TVLine first reported.

Nash will play Dr. Jean Fishman, the new chief of Shulman & Associates’ admitting hospital and rival to Mindy Kaling’s character. Nash’s character also happens to be lesbian.

Kaling tweeted the news on Friday.

“The Mindy Project” returns on September 16.
