The Mindy Project has been canceled

There may be second life for Mindy, however, and with a big upside: The show’s producer, Universal Television, is currently in serious talks with Hulu for multiple additional seasons. Hulu is a logical suitor, as it already owns the streaming rights to all of the show’s episodes.

Very disappointed. Such a consistently funny show.

I didn't like Mindy Kaling's character on The Office and only watched the pilot of The Mindy Project to mock how bad it was going to be. Completely turned me around. I LOVE Mindy Kaling now.

Similar here, except I never gave her a chance on Mindy Project. I still only see her character from The Office.

I would have put decent money on the show being renewed by Fox, which has a history of making room for comedies in their fourth seasons that are pretty much going through the motions to get enough episodes to make syndication viable, even if it's a non-Fox-produced show (like 'Til Death).

It's an NBC/Universal show, so I wouldn't be surprised if, rather than it going to Hulu, NBC picks it up and dumps it on, say, Bravo or Oxygen.

That's a shame. It ended on a cliffhanger, too.

Does NBC really have so many better rated sitcoms that they wouldn't put this on the air to get it to syndication?

The Mindy Project wasn't gut-busting funny, but it did make me chuckle consistently. Hope it gets picked up somewhere else.

yeah they are getting close to syndication numbers so I think that they will try really hard to continue the show

I like MK, and the first 2 seasons were good, but this last season was tanking for me.

Bummed to hear this. Love the show.

But Hulu? blech. I already have Netflix and Amazon and don't want to subscribe to YA service and commercials too.

I sure hope it eventually shows up on DVD, OR Hulu sells a Hulu++ without commercials..

(Though I admit I have been watching the unaired "Allegiance" On Demand, with unskippable commercials.. but using PIP on my hard drive/DVD recorder to watch something ELSE during the commercials and still pay attention to when the show comes back on...)
