‘Happy Endings’ could move to USA after season 3: Report

Happy EndingsAs it turns out, there still could be a happy ending coming up for “Happy Endings,” after all. The critically-acclaimed ABC comedy, which has been the victim of multiple time changes and airing against heavy competition almost all season long, is almost sure to be canceled by its network at the end of the season. However, it is starting to look more and more like we could have a “Cougar Town” 2.0 situation on our hands.

Why is that? According to a new report from Deadline, USA has expressed interest in potentially picking up the series for another season thanks to some early discussions with Sony Pictures TV. The studio is obviously very well aware of the fact that the ratings for the show are not particularly stellar for broadcast, but it could find a new audience on a cable network, which may actually suit its edgy humor better in many ways.

Oh, and there is also another major benefit to “Happy Endings” potentially teaming up with USA: the cable network already has the syndication rights to “Modern Family,” which served as a lead-in for the show for much of its first two seasons. This is a network that cares deeply about its programming, and they would surely find a way to market the show around its characters.

While we want to scream from the rooftop that this move is official, the two parties are only talking at this moment, unfortunately there are more “Jericho” or “The Secret Circle” situations than there are “Cougar Town” success stories.
