Good news! You're going to get to know Utkarsh Ambudkar even better when he returns, likely next fall, in Season 3 of "Ghosts."

His role as Jay, aspiring chef and co-owner of a haunted bed-and-breakfast in the CBS sitcom, is his highest-profile one yet, but he already knew his way around a hit comedy series going in.

You probably know him through his two collaborations with sitcom it girl Mindy Kaling. He played her younger brother, Rishi, in the long-running hit "The Mindy Project," which she starred in and produced. And he landed a recurring part as a teacher in her big follow-up series, "Never Have I Ever," which is still ongoing on Netflix.

Though it's also possible you know him, or at least the sound of him, from his prolific voice work. He's had roles on series such as "Mira, Royal Detective," "Harvey Girls Forever" and the innovative YouTube series "Force Grey."

On "Ghosts," Ambudkar has teamed up with a different gang of sitcom superstars. The series was created by Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, an established writing duo who have worked on hit series such as "New Girl" and "The Office" (with, incidentally, Mindy Kaling).

"Ghosts" got a third-season renewal before the second was done airing. And given that the first and second seasons debuted in the fall, it's likely that the third will do the same.
