Basic info and cast
The Mindy Project is an American romantic comedy television series that follows Doctor Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) as she tries to balance her personal and professional life in New York City. Created by Mindy Kalig herself and co-produced by Universal Television and 3 Arts Entertainment, the series first premiered on September 25, 2012 on Fox. After a three season run, the network canceled the series due to declining ratings. In May 2015 Hulu picked up the show for a fourth season.
In season 4 of The Mindy Project, which premiered on September 15, 2015, Mindy continues to explore life with the help of her wacky coworkers. With an impressive cast of recurring characters and guest celebrity appearances, the series has been a raging hit with critics and viewers alike. Yet its declining ratings in the world of TV viewing ultimately led to it being dropped by Fox. Meanwhile on Hulu, The Mindy Project remained popular with subscribers which drove the online streaming site to commission 26 episodes for the upcoming season.
Will Hulu subscribers push another renewal of the show for season 5? We certainly hope it does. This season has already opened to an impressive score of 81 on the respected reviews aggregate Meteoritic, receiving a “universal acclaim” stamp of approval. Stay tuned for an official announcement from Hulu.
Season 4 recap
On July 5, 2016 Hulu has concluded the broadcast of its hit romcom The Mindy Project`s 26-episode 4th season. The leeway and certain freedoms that the creators of the show were endowed with after the show`s move from Fox to Hulu were not really taken advantage of yet, since the producers wanted the show to keep the same atmosphere. However, there were some hints that he audience might see some changes in the upcoming fifth season. The season finale left things unresolved between Mindy and Danny (who has already mailed out the invitations for his wedding – to someone else). The series remains very popular after its move to Hulu, and still successfully fills the light entertainment niche. Luckily, its fans already have a fifth season release date to look forward to – and it`s not too far away! The fifth season is scheduled to return on October 4, 2016 to make the fall a lot more fun.
