TV show description:
Based on the graphic novel of the same name from Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson, the Happy! TV show centers on a former cop, Nick Sax (Meloni). Now a hitman, Nick finds himself unmoored in a treacherous world full of murder and meaningless hook-ups. One day, though, his drunken, depressing existence is turned upside down by Happy (Oswalt), an imaginary unicorn.
As a big city police detective, Nick was something of a superstar. After losing everything, he finds himself pretty much on the skids. Now working as a killer for hire, Nick blows what little cash he earns on drugs and booze.
Little Happy is silly, screwy, and persistently positive, which makes him the polar opposite of the snarky, cynical Nick. Together, this unlikely duo is partner up. Can they save the day?
There’s nothing stalwart single mother Amanda Hanson (Senghore) won’t do for her daughter, Hailey (Lorenzo). When the girl is kidnapped, Amanda’s world crumbles. In her fight to bring home her child, this mom must confront her personal demons.
Although he operates a legitimate wine import business, the fiendish Francisco Scaramucci, a.k.a. Mr. Blue (Coster), is far too wealthy to have come by his affluence honestly. It is from his extra-legal initiatives that he really rakes it in. Smoothie (Fischler), is the stooge who serves as Mr. Blue’s interrogator, and his methods truly are madness
Finally, there’s Meredith McCarthy (Mirojnick). A tenacious homicide detective, Merry is used to fighting to make her mark in a man’s world. In order to safeguard her aging mother and hang onto her job, Merry has not been above compromising her values or her honor. As her past comes back to haunt her, will it prove her damnations or her salvation? Stay tuned.
Episode #18 — Resurrection
Sonny broadcasts his Easter Eggtacular; Sax, Amanda and Happy try desperately to rescue Hailey from meeting a terrible fate.
First aired: May 29, 2019.
What do you think? Do you like the Happy! TV series? Should this TV show have been cancelled or renewed for a third season on Syfy?
Happy was a Hilarious, adult entertainment. Loved it! Maybe not meant for average censored TV station’s, but definitely for one of the Satellite TV and Cable channels. Bring it back. !
Happy has absolutely genius writing. One of my all-time faves.
PLEASEEEE bring this show back, this is my second favorite show ever, next to breaking bad….can’t really beat that. But SERIOUSLY PLEASEEEEE.
Happy! Should be renewed, that was the most unique show I’ve seen in a long time! Watched thru this Pandemic disaster n it made us laugh n forget our problems for a minute. Always canceling the good shows 🙁
This show is unbelievably good. My friend watches it, and told me about it. In her words: “It’s dark, weird, and funny— it’s your type of thing.” Tbh, I was skeptical. But I love this show so much. I love Meloni’s character, I love how sickly sweet that damn blue donkey is, I love the lighting and photography, the vignettes. Gah. I love it. When I found out it’s already been canceled, I wanted to cry a little. Please renew? *That’s only one wish*
This show did make me cry…
Love this show! What a great combination of action,drama, and comedy with theatricality and irreverence. With all the irredeemable characters it still has heart. I love it better than Ozark, which I quit watching because there wasn’t a redeemable character to believe in. We need more shows like this. The casting is fantastic. PLEASE renew this show!i never write these letters. This is actually my first review.
LOVE IT!! Would watch wherever it landed… please renew! We need to see what happens to the Sax/Hanson family & Happy!
Great acting. Funny show. More seasons please
Great and funny show. It needs another season. Please renew!
WHY? WHY, is it being cancelled? Its a great, crazy show. Keep it!
What he said!!
There is more to be wrung out of this show. Keep it.
Happy needs to Continue with season 3, it just can’t be canceled. Love This Show!
We’re gonna get Winona Earp and the barrage of Zombie and Vampire offerings, but there is little to be happy about with SciFi dumping what could be a classic? Silly to even talk about and I’ll be renewing Netflix for another year- More than I can say for The SciFi channel.
Good show! Keep it going!! Go Meloni!! One of the best shows on Sci-Fi!! Do another Christmas series.
Continue series. Funny show!
