Bad news, Mindy fans. Fox has canceled The Mindy Project. However, Mindy Kaling's cult-favorite romantic comedy, which wrapped up its third season in March, could find second life on a digital platform.
Fox cancels The Mindy Project -- but there's hope at Hulu
The Mindy Project, which holds the distinction of being created, written, produced by and starring an Indian American woman, has enjoyed a modest, loyal following, but has been consistently dogged by low ratings.
The show won't see a fourth season on broadcast, but it's possible you haven't seen the last of Dr. Lahiri and Co. The show's producer, Universal Television, is reportedly in talks with Hulu for multiple additional seasons. It makes sense, as Hulu already owns the current streaming rights to all of The Mindy Project episodes.
And Kaling doesn't seem to be worried. Shortly after news broke that Fox would not be renewing her show, she posted this very calm and serene video on Instagram that ends with knowing wink:
You certainly get the feeling that all is good in Mindy's world.
The Mindy Project will be back, and probably better off on Hulu.
I have one suggestion for season four: bring back John Cho as Big Murder!
