Nearly two years after ABC’s comedy “Happy Endings” got canceled, recent happenings all point to the series making a possible return. While these events could all just be coincidence there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that says the beloved show about a funny group of friends is getting resurrected.
Here are the facts:
1. The cast is pretty much available
Interestingly Eliza Coupe’s “Benched” was recently canceled, followed by news that Adam Pally (“The Mindy Project”) and Damon Wayans Jr. (“New Girl”) would both be scaling down their roles on their respective comedies. The fate of show creator David Caspe’s “Marry Me,” which also stars his wife and “Happy Endings” cast member Casey Wilson, is still up in the air at NBC at this time. So that just leaves Elisha Cuthbert and Zachary Knighton, who both have new series coming out. Cuthbert has NBC’s “One Big Happy,” while Knighton has FOX’s “Weird Loners.” But still they could probably make it work right?
The date that the countdown leads to is April 1, so this could all just be a big April Fools Day prank — but they wouldn’t be that cruel would they? The cast isn’t confirming or denying anything at this point either, but Adam Pally’s laughter has to be a good sign too, right?
Then to confuse fans even more @happywrites tweeted a couple of videos with one common denominator — ketchup. Totally off the wall — but interestingly one of the videos is a 1977 Heinz ketchup commercial titled “Anticipation” where the slogan is “The taste is worth the wait.” This seems like a check in the good things are happening column.
