The gang recruits Mindy Kaling?
Kaling, the award-winning actress known for her role on The Office who is also the star and creator of The Mindy Project, may have just dropped a hint toward some involvement on the next season of FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
“It’s always sunny when you’re visiting your friends on @alwayssunny #Season13,” Kaling wrote in a tweet this week that has fans wondering.

While it’s not clear what exactly Kaling was doing during the visit, Rob McElhenney, the Always Sunny creator and star, shared a photo of her with Kaitlin Olson, Danny DeVito and Charlie Day in a now-deleted Instagram post, according to NME.
“We’re proud to announce the new member of the gang,” McElhenney wrote, according to screenshots of the post circulated on Twitter. “We found her through a grueling audition process but we think this fresh-faced kid deserves a shot. This lady has a bright future.”

Some speculated that Kaling met with the crew to help with the script, rather than appear in the show itself. Others were excited about the possibility that she could be a guest star.
Either that or she is a writer since she helped a lot with office episodes! c:

Kaling also starred in the recently premiered Ocean’s 8 — a spin-off from the Ocean’s trilogy — alongside Sandra Bullock, Kate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway.
It’s Always Sunny is gearing up to enter its 13th season, though an air date for the premiere has not yet been announced.
