This review contains spoilers for season four of “The Mindy Project.”
When fans learned of the cancellation of “The Mindy Project” awhile back, many were left dismayed by the idea of not getting to see what happens next.
Luckily, Hulu came in and saved the day. It revived Mindy Kaling’s comedy and by doing so allowed for the show to stand on its own.
Viewers were left with quite the cliffhanger in the last episode of the first part of the season. Mindy and Danny Castellano just could not seem to work out the differences in their hopes for the future. Mindy desperately wanted to open up her own OB-GYN fertility clinic and focus on her career, while Danny wanted to have more children and build their family.
Viewers were left with Mindy clearly deciding on the ultimate fate of her relationship by ending before a real decision was actually discussed between the two.
The premiere of the second half of the season proved many viewers suspicions right. Mindy ended her relationship with Danny to focus more on her career. While the end of their romance is sad, it needs to be said how unique this is to the modern sitcom romance. It leaves viewers with the question, what happens when the fairytale romance is anything but? The common storyline is to make sure the boy and the girl always end up together but, as real life will tell you, that is not always the case.
It is unclear if Mindy and Danny will reconcile by the series finale. But what’s important is that Mindy herself is more than just Danny’s fiancee.
New episodes of “The Mindy Project” air on Hulu every Tuesday.
