Fox cancels The Mindy Project -- but there's hope at Hulu

(John P. Fleenor/Fox)

Fox is breaking up with The Mindy Project.

The network has canceled Mindy Kaling’s romantic comedy, EW has learned. 

The show, which boasts a cult audience but has been dogged by low ratings, wrapped its third season in March. 

There may be second life for Mindy, however, and with a big upside: The show’s producer, Universal Television, is currently in serious talks with Hulu for multiple additional seasons. Hulu is a logical suitor, as it already owns the streaming rights to all of the show’s episodes.

More to come: We’re entering a frantic annual three-day period of TV broadcasters making big decisions, so expect a bunch of series orders and verdicts on existing show. Follow @jameshibberd and @natalieabrams for up-to-the-minute details.
