It’s bad enough when you’re favorite show gets canceled, but it’s even worse when you’re favorite show gets canceled twice.
The Mindy Project first premiered on Fox in 2012, ran for three seasons, and was then canceled. However, there was a silver lining, and Mindy made the jump to Hulu, where she started living her best life. Now, two seasons after that big switch, Mindy Project has been canceled for a second time. Whyyyyyyyyy.
Before you start freaking out too much, she’s not gone just yet. While the show just aired the Season 5 finale (it’s streaming on Hulu right now), Mindy and the rest of her friends will still return for one more season, and then she’s going off into the great television unknown. At least this gives us plenty of time to mentally and emotionally prepare our hearts.
When asked about the decision to end the show, the IRL Mindy, Mindy Kaling, was nothing but upbeat and positive about the end of the show.
Mindy also has a pretty clear vision for the end of the show.
It’s a good thing the Season 5 finale was not the forever finale, because while it wrapped up a lot of things, it left so many more up in the air. Though Mindy has (obviously, this is a spoiler, come on) found happiness with Ben — and they get married??!!???? It’s hard to tell, but those are 100% wedding rings — Mindy’s last look in the episode isn’t all that reassuring. She’s found her happiness right now, but will it last forever?
Bless the TV gods for giving us one more season to find out. And also start stocking up on tissues for when Mindy is over.
