Praise Beyonce Pad Thai, our prayers have been answered!

Shortly after Fox made the totally crazy (in our honest opinion!) decision to cancel The Mindy Project after three seasons, another network quickly put on a cape and did some rescuing. E! News can confirm that Hulu has picked up Mindy Kaling's rom-com for a fourth season of 26 episodes.

Yes, you read that right: TWENTY-SIX. EPISODES. What's that sound? Oh, just the fervent keyboard clicks of every TMP fan as they sign up for Hulu Plus account!

"I am thrilled The Mindy Project has found a new home on Hulu, where so many of our fans are already watching the show. It's such an exciting place to be," Kaling said in a statement.

While Fox's decision not to pick up Mindy was a total buzzkill, we were never too worried about its future, seeing as how sources told us NBCUniversal, which produces the show, was in talks with Hulu to have it move networks.

"We are proud of the fresh, hilarious, smart storytelling on The Mindy Project. Mindy, along with the writers and actors, surprise us every week. They have made us laugh (a lot), cry and think. We are excited about our partnership with Hulu and look forward to sharing our amazing comedy with the show's many loyal fans for seasons to come," Universal Television's Bela Bajaria said in a statement.

"Mindy has been a beloved member of the Hulu family, so this deal is a natural extension of our relationship," Craig Erwich, senior vice president and head of content at Hulu, said in a statement. "With so many of her fans already catching up and tuning in to the series on Hulu, we know her millions of fans will be eager to find out what Mindy has in store for the next chapter."

Hulu has the option to pick up the series for more seasons after the initial season of 26 episodes.

Prior to the pick up from Hulu, Mindy seemingly posted a hint that TMP was going to be just fine after the cancellation news sent Twitter into a deep, dark depression, putting a video up on Instagram with the caption, "Hey guys, I'm in Montana, is anything happening in LA? #themindyproject." The video included a tranquil view of a running stream and trees before she turned the camera to hersef and winked. 

And that, our friends, is how you handle a cancellation like A BOSS.

A premiere date will be announced at a later date.

(E! and Universal Television are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
