There’s some sad news for fans of The Mindy Project: the series is coming to an end.
Mindy Kaling, who created and stars in the comedy, has confirmed the show has been renewed for a sixth season, but this will be its last.
“We’re really excited about this last season,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I think the timing is exactly right.

“What’s weird is, Mindy is married at the end of the season 5 finale, but she has never been married in the series, so that’s incredibly fun for a character who’s been obsessed with [marriage] and has come close many times, and seeing her disavow it for a while after her disastrous breakup with who she thought was her soulmate.
“And now she’s married! The final season is the final time—it’s the best time—to confront what that reality is for her. And really, we’ve put her through the ringer.”
Mindy added: “It’s hard. I’m a romantic at heart. I believe that marriage is like, a sacred relationship, and I really like it, but I’m also single myself, so I see every side of it. It’s going to be really fun to explore.”
The Mindy Project originally aired on Fox but was cancelled in 2015 after three seasons, and promptly picked up by Hulu.
The sixth and final season of the show will premiere on Hulu in September.
