There’s good news and bad news for fans of The Mindy Project. Hulu has renewed the Mindy Kaling comedy for a sixth season but that will be the final season. Season six will debut in September.
While this isn’t the first time that the series has been dropped — FOX stopped airing the series after three seasons — it seems unlikely that a new outlet will be pursued for a seventh season.
