What Time Does 'The Mindy Project' Hit Hulu? Don't Expect To Marathon It

It was hugely upsetting when The Mindy Project was cancelled after three seasons. The ratings for this beautiful little sitcom may have dipped, but the story was still soaring high: After seasons of "will-they-won't-they," Mindy and Danny were finally a real couple and getting ready to have a baby together, only to have the sitcom cut. Thankfully, though, it's 2015, and online streaming is the new route plenty of shows that were axed by the networks are taking. Season 4 of The Mindy Project will stream on Hulu, and if you're a die hard Mindy devout, you're already hyped about it — even if you do have plenty of questions, like what date and time The Mindy Project will hit Hulu. Breathe easy, because that's what I'm here for, and here's what you need to know.

No need to wait until the weather gets really chilly to cozy up to some Hulu-fied Mindy Project: The brand-new Season 4 will begin streaming on the service starting Sept. 15, 2015. But, if you were hoping that you could marathon your way through all 26 episodes of Season 4 before dawn of Sept. 16, that's not exactly how The Mindy Project is doing it.

If you've already gotten marathon-happy from Netflix series like Orange Is The New Black or The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, then this news might come as a bit of a shock: The Mindy Project will premiere a new episode each week, for 26 weeks. The good news? You'll get half a year's worth of Mindy Project episodes without fail! And, isn't it better to have the things you love most in small doses?

So far there's no official word as to what time Hulu will begin streaming The Mindy Project on Tuesdays. Futon Critic has it listed as 3:01 a.m. ET, which would make it just after midnight PT. As much as I adore The Mindy Project, I'm totally cool sleeping in and waking up at a reasonable hour to watch the new sitcom. Or, if you want to go hardcore you can stay up until midnight every Tuesday (or 3:00 a.m. if you live on the east coast) and watch it as soon as it premieres. Mindy would understand if you blew off your responsibilities for her.

So much Mindy Project is coming our way, and you won't even have to set your DVR for it. Get hyped.
