Mindy Kaling has seemingly joked about her TV show being canceled.
The actress is the star of cult comedy The Mindy Project, which was culled by Fox yesterday. The news was a shock to the program’s fans, many of who were distraught about the news.
Mindy, 35, appears to be amused by the furor and has posted a tongue-in-cheek message on Twitter.
“Hey guys, I’m in Montana, is anything happening in LA? #themindyproject (sic),” she posted, alongside a video of some giant trees blowing in the breeze.
It’s thought the series was not renewed after its third season due to low ratings.
Particularly irritating for fans is that the last series ended on a cliffhanger. Mindy’s namesake character Dr. Mindy Lahiri was pregnant and having problems with her love interest Danny, who appeared completely uninterested in meeting her family. However, it finished with him having a change of heart and travelling to meet her mother and father, then dramatically announcing he was in love with her.
Fans quickly vented their anger online, using Twitter to lash out at the decision.
“how could they cancel mindy project?!?!?! if i don’t get to see that half indian half italian baby i will actually explode (sic),” Bonita N wrote on Twitter.
Emily Maag added: “I wasn’t gonna go out tonight, but Fox cancelled “The Mindy Project,” so now I’m ordering drinks (sic).”
Lovers of the series should keep their fingers crossed though, as it’s thought the show might be picked up by Hulu, an online TV company. Apparently Universal, which produces the program, is in talks with the firm to create several new seasons. The company already streams The Mindy Project, so is a natural heir.
