According to reports, this is due to Fox comedy's midseason retooling which also includes Shawna's exit. Ditto Anna Camp's character bump as a recurring instead of a regular cast.
In a chat with Hitflix, the on-screen Dr. Schulamn who head the practice of Dr. Lahiri, Stephen Tobolowsky admits that his role did not fared as expected and it became less and less funny. He adds “I suspect I was a casualty of a show meeting many different demands from different sources. The Mindy Project team is “very talented” and “I certainly hope I didn’t stink up the joint.”
