Uh oh. “The Mindy Project” Season 3 is up in the air

FOX’s Tuesday night comedy “The Mindy Project” is in the middle of a Winter hiatus for its second season, but we won’t find out until May 2014 whether or not it’ll make it back in the Fall.

According to Epoch Times, ratings for Mindy Kaling’s show (on which she serves as creator, producer, writer, & lead actor) haven’t been the greatest. The inconsistent airing of episodes and weak storylines may have contributed to FOX’s hesitation of giving the “Okay” immediately.

Right now, the second season of “The Mindy Project” is on a long break since the end of January and it won’t be returning until April 1st. Its last episode, “The Desert,” ended on a huge gamechanger for the future of Mindy and Danny’s (romantic) relationship. If the show doesn’t get picked up for another season, it’d be a shame to see its only nicely developed relationship suffer from quick-fix writing instead of a satisfying conclusion after two years of built-up unresolved sexual tension.

Also, despite its flaws, ending “The Mindy Project” would mean there’d be no other leading South Asian actress gracing our screens. Kaling was the first and currently is the only leading actress of South Asian descent to have full creative control over a American mainstream television show.
