After being abruptly cancelled last week by Fox, The Mindy Project has been given a second chance on the Hulu online video service.
Hulu has picked up the show for a whopping 26-episode fourth season.
"Mindy has been a beloved member of the Hulu family, so this deal is a natural extension of our relationship," said Hulu's senior vice president Craig Erwich in a statement. “With so many of her fans already catching up and tuning in to the series on Hulu, we know her millions of fans will be eager to find out what Mindy has in store for the next chapter.”

Many fans already watch the show on Hulu, where past episodes are available for viewing.
“I am thrilled The Mindy Project has found a new home on Hulu, where so many of our fans are already watching the show. It's such an exciting place to be,” said the show’s star, Mindy Kaling, in a statement.
