Hulu's Fall 2017 Slate Includes Final Season of The Mindy Project and New Season of Freakish

The Mindy Project

Happy Fri-Yay! Our regular Fri-Yay column will return next week as we have a short hiatus. But we still have news as always, so let's get to it! Hulu has announced its Fall 2017 slate with premiere dates. The Mindy Project, Chance, I Love You, America, Freakish, Future Man, Marvel's Runaways, East Los High and Shut Eye dates were announced. The Mindy Project - The Final Season Premiere Date: Tuesday, September 12 with an episode count of 10 and starring Mindy Kaling, Ed Weeks, Ike Barinholtz, Beth Grant, Xosha Roquemore and Fortune Feimster.

Next, I Love You, America premiere with 10 episodes on Thursday, October 12 with Sarah Silverman. From inciting treason to telling poop jokes, Sarah Silverman has created her fair share of online chatter. With I Love You, America, she's looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously. While it's great to connect with like-minded people, Silverman feels it's crucial, now more than ever, to connect with un-like-minded people.
