No Season 3 for the cable drama.
June 4, 2019
It is being reported that Syfy has cancelled Happy! after two seasons. The not-so-happy news comes just days after the drama's sophomore finale, which now acts as its series-ender.
The show was generally well-received over the course of its run, amassing a core fanbase appreciative of its unique concept and gritty storytelling that stayed true to the source material on which it is based. But its ratings took a hit in Season 2, dipping to levels that likely sealed its fate.
Adapted from the graphic novel of the same name, Happy! stars Christopher Meloni as a corrupt ex-cop who now works as a hit man who spends his days intoxicated and adrift in a world of casual murder, meaningless sex, and betrayal. After a job goes awry, his life is forever altered by a small, relentlessly upbeat, imaginary blue winged horse, who is voiced by Patton Oswalt.

So sad. One of the best, most original shows on tv. Absolutely loved both seasons & I was looking forward to season 3 to explain some things. Not only was Christopher Meloni a standout character, but Christopher Fitzgerald was so crazy entertaining as Sonny Shine. What fabulous characters this show had! I hope the creators manage to put out some sort of wrapup to the series, just for closure on some of the mysteries of the show. Syfy continues to be on my unpopular list after cancelling Face Off, Z Nation and Happy!. Their most original, interesting shows are doomed and they keep predictable, unimaginative dreck like Killjoys. There is now no programming that I watch on Syfy at this time. Boo.

i have seen your moniker on multiple comment-sections, and i have noticed only negative feedback from you (i, of course, don't know if only 1 person uses this name, but let's say it's just you)
my question is: do u like any shows, or are you just interessted in telling the world how much you hate stuff? if you do like some shows, wich ones?

Damn another auto rec show cancelled. Melon was so interesting as Nick. The only thing I didn't understand was why was Happy still shadowing Nick in season 2 when Happy is Haileys Imaginary friend??? I think Happy should have been with Hailey in S2 so she wouldn't get tricked by the villians. I will miss the show. RIP

Season 1 of "Happy!" did the impossible, finding a heart deep inside the darkness in the story of a father trying to save his daughter in a very bad world.
But season 2 lost that heart after the daughter was saved, and it lost its soul. I tried watching it but gave up after a couple of episodes. It no longer made any sense, except maybe its only purpose was to shock its viewers.

Season 1 was great. Season 2 sucked!

Anyone who has read the comic knows that season one was it so the second season was just them winging it. That may explain some people thinking it went off the rails or was over the top. I can't disagree...but I loved it anyway. I'm sad to see it go as I feel it was very creative and entertaining....and crude, very crude, but I like that sorta thing so whatever. Maybe someone will pick it up? I won't hold my breath as people say that with every show cancellation but I can dream, right?

Anytime Patton Oswald loses a job the world is better for it. To bad Christopher Meloni will also. He did an amazing transformation as an actor into "Nick". As for the show, it was cool first season but season 2 turned into a cluster F.
