The Mindy Project Season 5? In an interview with THR, showrunner Matt Warburton confirms talks are underway with Hulu about a potential fifth season — made all the more important given that Season 4 ends on a cliffhanger.
As for how long the series could run, Warburton tells the outlet there’s no end in sight, noting “there’s plenty of gas left in the tank”:
Now that you’re almost at the end of this season, what kind of conversations have you and Mindy had with Hulu about what the next step is and what the order is?
We haven’t heard anything formally but we’re optimistic and hopeful. Hulu seems to be very happy with the show and I think we’ve really found an audience that’s migrated to streaming so yeah, we’re definitely optimistic and anxiously talking about the next step.
Does the finale end on a cliffhanger where you assume there will be more after that?
The spring finale will leave people in a very-much-up-in-the-air place in a way that I’m excited to see how they react.
Beyond that, as you’re getting later into the series’ run and we’ve seen these characters grow so much, what kind of conversations have you and Mindy had about how much longer you see the show running?
I think its an annual discussion. We definitely feel we have a lot more story to tell with these characters. You want to see Leo grow up. You want to see where things go with Mindy and Danny and all the problems that people are going to learn about coming up. I think there’s plenty of gas left in the tank at this point.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of The Mindy Project Season 5…
