‘The Mindy Project’ axed by Fox, could be picked up by Hulu

Hulu is said to be 'in talks' about reviving Mindy Kaling's sitcom for 'multiple additional seasons'

The Mindy Project is understood to have been cancelled by US network Fox.

The sitcom starring former The Office actress Mindy Kaling launched on Fox in 2012 and recently completed its third season, but Entertainment Weekly reports that the network has decided not to order a fourth season. Though the show, which co-stars Chris Messina and British actor Ed Weeks, is popular with TV critics and has built a loyal following over its three-season run, it has consistently struggled in the ratings.

However, online streaming service Hulu is said to be holding talks with The Mindy Project‘s producers about reviving the sitcom for “multiple additional seasons”. Hulu already owns the streaming rights to existing seasons of The Mindy Project.

The Mindy Project centres on Kaling’s character, obstetrician/gynaecologist Mindy Lahiri, as she tries to balance her professional life co-managing a small medical practice in New York City with an often chaotic personal life. The show has attracted a host of notable guest stars over its three-season run including James Franco, Seth Rogen, Tyler The Creator, Moby and Laura Dern.
