Comedienne Mindy Kaling’s popular show The Mindy Project has been renewed for its sixth and final season.
The TV series premiered in 2013, before it was cancelled in 2015. Bosses at streaming service Hulu subsequently picked up the romantic comedy series, but it has now been announced it will end after the season six premiere in September (17).
“I mean this half-jokingly, but at a certain point it was like, ‘I think she’s (character) dated every man in Manhattan‘,” she tells Entertainment Weekly. “Sex and the City lasted for, what, six seasons with 10 episodes each? I don’t know that there’s been a show about a woman trying to find love in New York City that has lasted quite this long. And frankly, there’s no more actors in Hollywood left to date…”
“We started this series when she was single, and now she’s married and has a kid and she has a stepdaughter, and it kind of just felt like (a few) more episodes was all we needed to wind this down,” she adds.
It is unclear how many episodes will make up the final season. Season five was comprised of 14 episodes.
