It couldn´t be the full trifecta… as Suburgatory got renewed and Community got renewed, but ABC cancelled Happy Endings making it go after three seasons. And the show has already developed some interest in USA execs for maybe a pickup.
Can this really happen, to get a Cougar Town like happy ending for the show? Hopefully.
“Happy Endings” is a raucous comedy about six dysfunctional thirtysomething friends living in Chicago. Called “the funniest show on TV” by Associated Press, “Happy Endings” follows the lives of shop owner Alex and her ex-fiance, Dave, an aspiring restaurateur who runs a food truck called “Steak Me Home Tonight”; crazy-in-love husband and wife duo Brad and Jane, who is also Alex’s sister; Max, their perpetually underemployed gay friend, and singleton Penny, always in pursuit of, but never quite finding, the right guy.
Some of the developments viewers will see early this season: Alex and Dave (who haven’t been a couple since Alex dumped Dave at the altar) will begin dating again, trying to “keep it cazsh.” But since the last time these two got together did not end well, who knows how far the romance will get this time?
For now, only Max knows that Penny also has some unresolved feelings for Dave, but that will change as others in the tightly-knit group catch on. While “the year of Penny” is over (and was less than “ahmahzing”), Penny will continue to date and might finally find a steady boyfriend. Brad, once the biggest breadwinner of the group, was fired from his job in last year’s season finale. He’ll turn to Max for tips on surviving underemployment. He’ll try out a variety of jobs to make ends meet, including working on a bar mitzvah hype team with Max.
Max will also keep looking for the right guy, but his road to romance won’t be easy either, and even kind of dangerous when he develops a crush on a physical therapist — with hilarious consequences for Penny.
