Both shows have been picked up for additional seasons.
Hulu has announced season renewals for its original series 'The Mindy Project' and 'The Path.' 'The Mindy Project' is now set to return for a fifth season while 'The Path' has been granted a second season order. In addition, the streaming platform has announced a new election special from Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog.
'The Path' follows a family at the center of a controversial cult movement as they struggle with relationships, faith and power. Each episode takes an in-depth look at the gravitational pull of belief and what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want. The series blends elements of mystery-thriller, romance and the supernatural.
The show was created by Jessica Goldberg who also wrote and executive-produced the series, along with Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack Productions. Series stars include Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan and Hugh Dancy. The season one finale will premiere on May 25, and past episodes are now available to stream through Hulu.
'The Mindy Project' is a single-camera comedy series created by and starring Emmy®-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling that follows a skilled OB/GYN navigating choppy waters of both her personal and professional life.
The show is executive produced by Kaling, Howard Klein, Matt Warburton, Charlie Grandy and Michael Spiller. The cast also includes Chris Messina, Ed Weeks, Ike Barinholtz, Beth Grant, Xosha Roquemore and Fortune Feimster.
In addition to 'The Mindy Project' and 'The Path,' Hulu has also announced plans to stream a second election special from Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog (Robert Smigel). The new special is set to premiere just in time for the election. Likewise, the company also recently snagged the exclusive U.S. streaming video on demand rights to Ron Howard’s feature documentary, 'The Beatles: Eight Days A Week,' (working title), and revealed plans to offer live streaming content in early 2017.
A current Hulu subscription starts at $8 per month with commercials. In addition, ad-free playback is available for $12 per month.
