Fox Renews ‘New Girl,’ ‘The Mindy Project,’ and ‘Raising Hope’

By

Fox is keeping pretty much all of its comedies for the 2013-2014 TV season. The network just announced that its Tuesday night comedies, Raising Hope, New Girl, and The Mindy Project, have been renewed for a fourth, third, and second season, respectively. The early renewal comes as some surprise, as The Mindy Project and Raising Hope have seen their audiences drop off a little bit, but the new season will bring Hope to the number of episodes needed for a lucrative syndication deal and Mindy has seen the show drawing stronger and stronger reviews from critics and audiences alike following a ton of midseason retooling. The only Fox comedies not to be renewed for 2013-2014 are Ben and Kate, which was canceled in January despite critical acclaim, and The Cleveland Show, which has its fate hanging in the balance.
