The Mindy Project has been axed. American network Fox has opted not to bring back Mindy, Danny and Morgan for a fourth run, after the rom-com sitcom’s third season finished last month.
And it’s fair to say fans of the show, which ended without many of its loose ends tied up, have not taken the news well.
To begin with there was open-mouth shock…
Fox cancelled The Mindy Project!!! What the hell!?!?!?!????!!!

Then there was anger.

There have been tears…

And broken hearts…

Soon it was trending on Twitter. Some poor fans got excited, before realising why the comedy was being talked about on social media, and the cycle started all over again.
I saw that the mindy project was trending, so I got excited ….. NOOOOOOOOO GOD NOOOO, WHY?

Plenty of Mindy-lovers had helpful suggestions for FOX’s programming execs…

But seriously @FOXTV you're still airing American Idol but not The Mindy Project ????????????

While others took the cancellation to heart and blamed themselves:
They literally cancelled the mindy project I can't believe this. THIS IS MY FAULT BC I ONLY WATCHED THE FIRST HALF OF THIS SEASON ????

However, Mindy herself didn’t seem too distressed. The show’s star, who is currently enjoying spectacular views in Montana, posted a video of her casually winking on Instagram…
Could that be a hint rumours that Hulu will pick up the show are true?

Fans are certainly keeping their fingers crossed and their tweets full of imploring hashtags:
#HuluSaveMindy pls pls bc I love The Mindy Project and cannot deal with another one of my favourite programmes being cancelled forever ????????
