Happy!, based on the Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name, focuses on Nick Sax – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man, who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit goes wrong, his life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy.
President of Entertainment Networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, Chris McCumber, released a statement saying:
Happy! struck a chord with our Syfy audience and disrupted the TV landscape with its unique storytelling and outrageous performances led by Christopher Meloni. If people thought this season was crazy – I can’t wait for fans to see what Grant Morrison, Brian Taylor and the entire cast and crew have in store for Sax and Happy!
The show has been a breakout hit for SyFy since its premiere in early December of last year, ranking as one of SyFy’s best series premiere since The Magicians in January 2016 across all key demographics.
Happy! stars Christopher Meloni, Patton Oswalt, Ritchie Coster, Lili Mirojnick, Medina Senghore, Patrick Fischler, Joseph D. Reitman, Debi Mazar, Bryce Lorenzo, Gus Halper and Christopher Fitzgerald.
