Fox Just Cancelled THE MINDY PROJECT

Written by

Well, shit. The Fox network just cancelled The MIndy Project, one of the few entertaining shows still left on broadcast TV. Fox executives said today the show will not return this fall for a fourth season. The annoyingly sappy New Girl however, will be coming back. Oh, yay. 

Over the course of it's run, The Mindy Project struggled to find a large audience, though it was popular amongst the female demographic. Some critics liked the show while others complained that it had trouble finding itself and characters were constantly being written out of the series in order to "tweak" it. To be fair, 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation did the same thing. Just ask Josh Girard and Mark Brandanawicz. "Who?" you just asked. Exactly, my friends. Exactly.

A question we were pondering just two days ago has been answered: Fox has not renewed The Mindy Project for a fourth season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But, as in any rom-sitcom, it may be darkest before the dawn, as hip young upstart Hulu has swooped in to possibly rescue The Mindy Project by offering new episodes online. THR continued that Universal Television is “now in talks with Hulu for a multiple-season renewal,” though Hulu and Universal Television (the show’s production studio, which conveniently owns a stake in Hulu) declined to comment.

As much as I'd love to believe a service such as Hulu will swoop in and continue this series, after the Twin Peaks mess Showtime is now finding itself in, much to the dismay of fans who were promised a new season, only to have that show's creator, David Lynch walk away last month, I do not want to get my hopes up again. Maybe in a cost-cutting measure, Showtime can team up with Hulu and create a Twin Peaks-Mindy Project joint series. They can satisfy fans of two series that way. Hey, can't be any weirder than the time Urkel appeared on Full House - even though Full House took place in San Francisco and Urkel lived in Chicago, yet he was still their neighbor. Nope. Never could figure that one out.
