Is Mindy Kaling Done Writing For 'The Office'?

On Mindy Kaling's Twitter feed, the actress has been hinting that this is also her last season, even if it's jokingly in comparison to the much more ballyhooed departure of Steve Carell.

During our interview, which mostly revolves around the season that will end with next week's star-studded season finale, I asked if Kaling, who not only plays Kelly Kapoor but also is one of the show's best writer/producers, is coming back next year.
"She's coming back as an actress for sure," Lieberstein told me. When I pressed and asked if that means she won't be writing for the show anymore, he said, "It doesn't look that way, but I don't think that's been... we don't know yet."
