Dr. Mindy Lahiri is back in session!

Fans were devastated when Fox announced that The Mindy Project would not be returning for a fourth season, but now there is officially reason to go on smiling again: Hulu has picked up Mindy Kaling‘s series as its latest venture into new programming.

With this announcement, Mindy joins a growing list of shows with rabid fan bases that have been rescued from cancellation by another network or digital streaming service.

Other comeback series include Family Guy, Friday Night Lights, Arrested Development and most recently Community, which was picked up by Yahoo! after being canceled by NBC last year.

A release date for season 4 of Mindy has yet to be announced by Hulu.
