FOX has decided to cancel The Mindy Project after three seasons on the air. The low-rated sitcom may still have a fourth season however — and might even see a fifth year as well.
On The Mindy Project, a talented obstetrician (Mindy Kaling) has a chaotic personal life and struggles to find the elusive perfect relationship. Her workmates are played by Chris Messina, Ed Weeks, Adam Palley, Ike Barinholtz, Beth Grant, and Xosha Roquemore.
The series has never been a great ratings performer for the network and the numbers dropped even lower this season. The third season averaged a 1.05 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.31 million viewers. That’s a season-to-season decline of 15% and 10% respectively.
While FOX has decided against ordering a fourth season, word is that Hulu is considering a two-season pick up. The streaming service is in talks with Universal TV for seasons four and five. We should know more in the next couple weeks.
