‘The Mindy Project’ Season 4 to Launch Sept. 15; ‘Casual’ Debut Set for October

The fourth season of “The Mindy Project” will premiere Sept. 15 on Hulu. The streaming service has also set an Oct. 7 premiere date for the comedy series “Casual,” directed by Jason Reitman.

Hulu announced both launch dates Sunday at the Television Critics’ Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton.

“Mindy Project” was picked up by Hulu for a 26-episode fourth season, after being cancelled by Fox. The move comes after “Mindy” ranked as a top property on Hulu, which houses the previous seasons of the fan-favorite comedy that aired on Fox.

“‘Mindy’ was such a huge performer on Hulu before we even considered picking up the original version,” Beatrice Springborn, Hulu’s head of originals, recently told Variety, adding that the new season won’t see any big changes in tone, but star Mindy Kaling was excited about the extended length of each episode.

“Because it had such an established fanbase and such a vocal fanbase, we also knew we would get those loyal viewers who were watching Fox to come to Hulu, and they would come to subscribe and become loyal viewers on Hulu versus Fox,” Springboard added of the pick-up.

“Casual’s” freshman bow will consist of 10 episodes. The original half-hour comedy follows a dysfunctional family with a bachelor brother and his newly divorced sister who together coach each other through the world of dating while living under the same roof again and raising a teenager.

The series stars Michaela Watkins and Tara Lynne Barr and is exec produced by Reitman, writer Zander Lehmann, Helen Estabrook and Liz Tigelaar.
