Nick isn’t smiling over this news. Syfy has cancelled the Happy! TV show so there won’t be a third season for this strange series. The program is based on a comic book series that was created by writer Grant Morrison and artist Darick Robertson.
A comedic, fantastical crime drama, Happy! stars Meloni with Patton Oswalt (voice), Lili Mirojnick, Medina Senghore, Ritchie Coster, Patrick Fischler, and Christopher Fitzgerald. The season two cast also includes Ann-Margaret and Big Show. Happy! centers on a former cop, Nick Sax (Meloni). As a hitman on the skids, a drunken and depressed Nick had his existence turned upside down by Happy (Oswalt), an imaginary unicorn, who is out to save the day. In the second season, Sax is trying to stay sober and do right by his family, but old nemesis Sonny Shine (Fitzgerald) is now on a mission to Make Easter Great Again (MEGA) with the help of his demented Easter Bunny henchman.
Given the decline in ratings and because there was a nearly 14-month gap between the end of season one and the start of season two, the cancellation doesn’t come as much of a surprise. However, Universal Content Productions plans to shop the series to other outlets and the first season is supposedly performing well on Netflix.
What do you think? Do you like the Happy! TV show? Should this Syfy series have been cancelled or renewed for a third season? Would you watch the show elsewhere?
