"The Mindy Project" will be returning after all! The fourth season of the half-hour comedy will be broadcast on Hulu, Minday Kaling confirmed on Friday in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

It's unclear yet when the show will come back, or whether the whole season will be renewed at once like Netflix shows or once a week. There will be 26 episodes.

Kaling called Hulu "an exciting place to be" and said "our fans are already watching the show."

"The Mindy Project" ran for three season on Fox, and although it was critically acclaimed and had a devoted fan following, it did not translate into high ratings for Fox.

Kaling's second book, "Why Not Me," is set to be released in September.

Lesson learned: Never count Mindy Lahiri (or Kaling) out.
