The Mindy Project - Cancelled by FOX, Eyes 2-Season Pickup At Hulu *Updated*

The series — co-starring Chris Messina — always fared especially well with multiplatform views, however, drawing much of its streaming audience from Hulu.

Mindy Project ended its third season with a cliffhanger in March, with Kaling telling THR that she refuses to "create under the assumption of failure" and had preliminary talks with Universal Television's Bela Bajaria about where the series would go in a potential fourth season.

"I just think there are more stories," Kaling told THR about jumping networks should Fox opt out. "I do think there’s more to tell, and I think fans would be disappointed not to see more adventures with these characters. But I came from a show [The Office] that I was on for eight seasons, and it continued for another year after that, so I am accustomed to long runs of television shows. I would be up for that challenge."

Sources told THR that Kaling and Reilly had been in regular communication following Mindy's season finale about potentially bringing the comedy to Reilly-controlled TBS, which itself is facing a comedy reinvention with a slate of all-new programming. Ultimately, it was Hulu who stepped up after multiple outlets including NBCUniversal-owned cabler Bravo — which has featured Mindy marathons — expressed interest.

Fox is breaking up with The Mindy Project.

The network has decided to cancel Mindy Kaling’s romantic comedy, EW has learned. The show, which boasts a cult audience but has been dogged by low ratings, wrapped its third season in March.

There may be second life for Mindy, though. And it could be big news for fans. The show’s producers are in serious talks with Hulu for multiple additional seasons. Hulu is a logical suitor, as it already has the streaming rights to all of the show’s episodes.


Thanks to Mr. Edmodo for the heads up.

The Mindy Project always felt like a show that would be better suited for a digital platform with its small but devoted following. After three seasons on broadcast, the offbeat comedy may take the leap to VOD with a deal at Hulu. I hear the streaming service is in talks for a two-season pickup for the series created by and starring Mindy Kaling. I hear that Fox has informed the Mindy Project team that it would not be picking up a fourth season though the network would not confirm that.
