After the show survived the ax once before, it looks like “The Mindy Project” is finally meeting its end.
Hulu has renewed the romantic comedy from Mindy Kaling for a sixth and final season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “The Mindy Project” is set to return this fall to wrap its run, but the number of episodes hasn’t been decided.
“It has been an honor and a joy to work with Mindy and the entire creative team behind ‘The Mindy Project.’ This series has been part of Hulu since we launched the service and, thanks to Mindy’s incredibly unique voice and vision, has remained one of our most popular and beloved series over the past five years,” Hulu’s Head of Content Craig Erwich told THR in a statement.
“While we can’t wait to see what Mindy has in store for what will undoubtedly be a fantastic sixth and final season, we know ‘The Mindy Project’ will live on as fans will continue to watch, discover, and re-live all of the best moments from the complete series on Hulu.”
In 2015, Fox canceled “The Mindy Project” after three seasons. Hulu swooped in and picked up the series soon after. At the time, Hulu already streamed episodes of the comedy from previous seasons, which gave the streaming company additional knowledge of how the series would perform for it.
