The second FOX canceled The Mindy Project, there were rumblings that it had already found a new home. Much to the delight of the show’s loyal fans, those rumors turned out to be true.

Hulu, which already has the exclusive streaming rights to the show, has officially resurrected the sitcom for a fourth season. And a super-sized one at that. The streaming service ordered a whopping 26 episodes, bringing the series closer to the magical 100-episode syndication mark.

No date has been revealed on when Mindy Kaling and company will return. Check out statements from both Hulu and Kaling below.

Ever since it premiered, The Mindy Project has always been on-the-bubble. It’s escaped the chopping block for a couple seasons but the guillotine finally fell on the comedy. FOX canceled the Mindy Kaling series after three seasons. There is, however, light at the end of the tunnel. Find out below.

On Oscar night you can’t have your average run-of-the-mill photobooth. Especially when you’re Vanity Fair and hold one of the most exclusive and hottest parties. The publication enlisted frequent GQ contributor Mark Seliger to snap some of the celebrities who attended their annual fete.

“As guests leave the red carpet and enter the main #vfoscarparty space, they’ll have the option to stop by the studio and stake a claim to immortality — or at least strike a few portfolio-style poses.” – Vanity Fair explains about their photobooth

Who chose the option to be immortalized? Oprah Winfrey, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Aniston, Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, Adam Levine, Karlie Kloss and Monica Lewinsky to name a few.

Speaking of the latter, how did the former White House intern snag an invite to the party? I’d like some tips on how to crash this party one day :) Check out more photos below Vanity Fair shared on their Instagram account.

Last issue, Time Magazine put same-sex marriage front and center on their cover. This time around they look to Jennifer Lawrence and six others to grace their annual 100 Most Influential issue. From artists and leaders to pioneers, titans and icons, the issue highlights the most influential people in the world. Each person is profiled by an equally luminary voice. In Lawrence’s case, it’s Academy Award winning actress Jodie Foster.

“You’ll remember where you were when you first felt it, how you were stuck to one spot like a small animal considering its end. The Jennifer Lawrence Stare. It cuts a searing swath in your gut. A reckoning. I remember going to the cutting rooms of Winter’s Bone. I thought, Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be.” – Jodie Foster

Photographer Mark Seliger snapped Lawrence for one of seven collectible covers. Gracing their own cover are Jay-Z (artist and entrepreneur), Elon Musk (SpaceX and Tesla founder), Li Na (tennis champion), Aamir Khan (film star and activist), Rand Paul (U.S. Senator) and 15-year-old activist Malala Yousafzai. Check out their covers below, along with some of my favorite entertainment stars included on the Time 100 list.

“Hermoine just stole our sh*t.” Based on that line alone, I’m sooooo seeing this. After releasing a faux Pineapple Express 2 movie trailer on April Fools’ Day to promote This Is The End, Seth Rogen drops an actual one for it. It’s the second red band trailer for his on-screen reunion with James Franco.

This Is The End” features all the actors playing fictional versions of themselves. They congregate at Franco’s house for a kick ass house party. Given that it’s a gathering in Hollywood, expect a few celebrities to pop in. Rihanna, Aziz Ansari, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Paul Rudd and Mindy Kaling all partake in the festivities. Rihanna even slaps Cera after he makes the moves on her.

During the party, as luck would have it, the end of the world happens. One by one people start dropping dead. Rihanna gets swallowed up by the earth and Cera gets lanced by a light post. An axe-wielding Emma Watson also makes an appearance in the flick. Check out the brand new trailer featuring some violence and lots of references to titty f**king.

Upcoming Guest Stars On The Mindy Project

In: Donovan, TV Shows

New Girl, The New Normal and The Mindy Project are all back from their respective winter breaks with brand new episodes tonight. Halleloo. I need a good laugh today. To commemorate its return, I thought I’d share a picture of Allison Williams‘ (Girls) guest appearance on tonight’s show and breaking casting news of a major movie star heading to the FOX sitcom next month.

On the February 19 episode titled, “The One That Got Away,” we find our favorite gynecologist heroine reuniting with a former flame named Sam. The two reminisce about their time at Jewish summer camp (LOL) and begin to rekindle their summer teen romance. Rumor has it, Sam was her first kiss. Can’t you already hear one of Katy Perry’s songs playing in the background. Find out who’s playing Sam below. Here’s a hint. He’s played a super hero in a major motion picture in the past couple of years. Find out who below.

It’s New Beginnings On The Mindy Project

In: Donovan, TV Shows

It’s a new year and with it comes new beginnings. In this case, new episodes for one of my favorite freshmen sitcoms (The New Normal being the other). Even when The Mindy Project isn’t at its best, Mindy Kaling herself brings it on home. That woman is so dang adorable. What’s not to love?

Last we saw our OB/GYN heroine, she found out her boyfriend Josh was two-timing her. When she discovered this at her Christmas party, all hell and hilarious mayhem ensued. With a new year upon her, Mindy, like most of us, decides it’s time to start anew. She enrolls for a “beginners” aerobic class and has an encounter with a potential new love interest in the elevator. Not as cute as Josh, but it’s a rebound guy so it really doesn’t matter ;)

Kaling isn’t the only one trying to spice things up. On the Tuesday, January 8 episode we meet Mindy’s brother for the first time. He’s currently in college, but informs big sis that he wants to drop out and pursue a rap career. LOL. Obviously, this will freak out Mindy. Check out the recently released promo for the episode titled “Mindy’s Brother” below.

Hot damn, I think I found my pick of the season and we’re only two episodes in. As much-talked-about new series like Revolution, The Mob Doctor and Partners blow it IMO despite bigger star names and budgets in their cast/crew/creatorship records, the little comedic engine(/ingenue) that could- The Mindy Project staring Mindy Kaling– is absolutely killing it. I know we’re very, very early in the season (literally episode 2 for most of the new shows), but that’s how this game of television is played and most don’t get a second, third or fourth chance to survive the ever-daunting chop block. Just like the exec big wigs, I’m a split-decision guy and I’m ready to announce that as of last night’s episode, The Mindy Project is the one to watch.

My original review of the premiere of this puppy was all thumbs up athat one of my favorite characters of the iconic US take on The Office was starting up her own show with her unique brand of 20/30-something female humour. Without re-hashing the themes and motive of the show (again, check out my original article for those deets), I will focus on this newest episode as post pilot we get a slightly less boy-crazy and desperate Mindy with a bit more wit and backbone which is heavily welcomed, offering us a protagonist with a relatable perspective and purpose. She is the smart, sassy everywoman of today. And, she’s f-ing hilarious as hell while being her.
