She may be getting her own time in the spotlight with The Mindy Project, but Mindy Kaling is determined to make time for the show that launched her career.

During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Mindy confirmed that she’ll be returning for the Season 9 premiere of The Office. She left the show in May after playing hopeless romantic and incessant chatterbox Kelly Kapoor for eight seasons.

“I’m going to be in the premiere and maybe another episode,” Mindy said during the TCA press junket for Fox.

And how will Kelly finish out her run on The Office?

“I'd always thought that Kelly was probably the person on The Office who was the most into reality television," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "I always thought she would audition for American Idol and move to L.A. under some feeling that she would become a big star and it would all blow up in her face spectacularly. [...] It'll be fun to see what happens to Kelly.”

We can’t wait to see where Kelly ends up either!
