I remember when Hulu was supposed to save Happy Endings, so I’m not holding my breath. However, FOX recently informed third season comedy The Mindy Project that it would not be getting a fourth season. Rumors immediately swirled that the show was in talks with Hulu for a two-season pickup. Since Hulu doesn’t do 22 episode seasons, it’s likely that the “two seasons” is because Mindy is used to shooting more than 10-13 episodes a season, so they can essentially produce “two seasons” worth of episodes for Hulu in what would amount to a single season normally on FOX.
Just in case you’re wondering why a cancelled sitcom would be trying to get a “two season” pickup at Hulu.
