Is there such a thing as too many funny people on one show? Well, we’re about to find out when Niecy Nash brings her talents to The Mindy Project.

EW has confirmed that Nash will join the show’s third season in a recurring role as Dr. Jean Fishman, a rival of Mindy’s—or as Mindy Kaling tweeted, her “work nemesis“—and the new chief of Shulman & Associates’ admitting hospital. TVLine, which first reported the news, described Fishman as “a take-no-prisoners type” who “also happens to be a lesbian.” And considering we know that Mindy kisses a girl this season, could Nash’s introduction be related?

We’ll find out when The Mindy Project returns for its third season on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
