‘Happy Endings’: USA passes on comedy; could TBS, NBC air season 4?

Happy EndingsBad news for longtime fans of “Happy Endings”. It’s starting to look more and more as though the series is not going to be having much of a happy ending at all, unless a network swoops in like Superman to save the critically-acclaimed show from cancellation at the last minute.

According to Vulture, talks between USA and the show’s studio Sony Pictures TV have broken down like a geek without Mountain Dew, meaning that it appears that the low-rated (but critically-acclaimed) series is not going to continue on this network. However, there is still a possibility that either TBS (which picked up “Cougar Town,” another canceled ABC series) or even NBC could pick up the show. Given that “Arrested Development” has done so well, couldn’t Netflix consider it as well? This is mere speculation on our part.

While it is definitely possible that this show could end up sadly meeting its maker, this is at least an age where even canceled shows can have the ending they deserve. Look at Kickstarter, Amazon, or even the new service Microsoft is starting up. While the actors would obviously love the show to air on a major network, there is such an investment made by them along with the show creators that they would like to see something play out to fruition.

We will likely have an answer one way or another about the future of the series this month, as the actors’ contracts are all set to expire soon. If the show passes this deadline, it’s not necessarily over; however, you’re looking at a situation that would require a miracle.

Stay tuned as we’ll have much more on this situation when it becomes available. For now, just pay a visit to the link here if you want to read more about what is going on with the show’s cancellation.
