It is being reported that freshman series Happyish has been cancelled after its first season. The dark comedy premiered on Showtime in the spring to mixed reviews and lackluster viewership throughout its 10-episode run.
Happyish was originally to star Philip Seymour Hoffman, but the actor passed away shortly after the original pilot episode was filmed. The showrunners were forced back to the drawing board, re-casting the lead role and some of the other cast. Unfortunately the final product failed to resonate with audiences, cutting its time short after one season.
