As expected, Hulu has saved the FOX canceled ‘Mindy Project’ series. The video-streaming service confirmed the deal with FOX earlier today in a blog-post stating “We are excited to officially announce that Hulu will deliver season four – that’s 26 new episodes – of the critically acclaimed series The Mindy Project. The series will join Hulu’s Original Programming slate in a new agreement with Universal Television.”
The show’s move to HULU isn’t a total surprise, episodes of ‘The Mindy Project’ are one of the most-watched videos on the site, and ensuring that more are made makes a lot sense for Hulu assuming viewership away from the network remains strong. According to the company “subscribers will be able to stream past and future episodes” of The Mindy Project, so if you aren’t caught-up in the current season, you can still do so.
Other original programming titlers that are coming to Hulu include “11/22/63” from Stephen King and J.J. Abrams. That event will star James Franco. A new comedy series called ‘Difficult People,’ which is produced by Amy Poehler, will star Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner.
The Mindy Project is a single-camera comedy series created by and starring Emmy-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling that follows a skilled OB/GYN navigating the tricky waters of both her personal and professional life. The series also stars Chris Messina, Ed Weeks, Ike Barinholtz, Beth Grant and Xosha Roquemore. From 3 Arts Entertainment in association with Universal Television, The Mindy Project is executive produced by Kaling, Howard Klein, Matt Warburton, Charlie Grandy and Michael Spiller.
Hulu stopped short of announcing when season four of The Mindy Project will premiere, but more information “will be announced at a later tim.”
