Although its ratings were low next to broadcast network television shows, last year, the Happy! TV show was the second highest ratings-earner for Syfy. On the other hand, the cable network cancelled The Expanse, its third highest-rated show, so maybe we’re lucky to be here now. Can the second season of Happy! draw a bigger audience and cement its place in the Syfy lineup? Will Happy! be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A comedic Syfy crime drama with a whimsical touch of fantasy, Happy! stars Christopher 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.
