ABC Renews Happy Endings For Season 3

I supposed it's fitting that a well-loved show called Happy Endings would get good news way after nearly all the other shows on its network were renewed. But come on, ABC, don't play with us like that. The Alphabet has renewed Happy Endings for a third season. Yay!

Even better news, the renewal is for 22 episodes, says TV Line. Happy Endings was one of the series left out in the cold yesterday after ABC renewed 10 other shows. And the early success of newbie Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 has recently seemed a threat to Happy Endings' future. Now who's feeling threatened, B----? (Side note, I'd very much like to see Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 renewed, too.)

But that's not all (though it essentially is because no big whoop about what I'm going to say)! Wife Swap and America's Funniest Home Videos have also been renewed!

ABC will officially announce its schedule on Tuesday when it holds its Upfront presentation in New York.

Amahhhhhhzing! DOUBLE AMAHZING for that 22-episode order, although I hope they get a big break mid-season so they can get a breather, a show like this can get worn out from acting and writing talent halfway through.



AFHV is ABC's free show, of course they're going to renew it no matter how insipid it really is. I'm shocked that they're bothering with Wife Swap though, that hasn't felt like it's been around in a while.

My favorite comedy on TV! Love it! So glad it was renewed for a full 22 episode season. And I'm really glad Don't Trust The B was renewed too. Both are great.

If they renew the B----, ABC is going to have one killer comedy block next year!

Second best comedy on TV next to Community. And the best one on ABC. Hey NBC, this is how you treat your best comedy.



I don't see B in 23 as a threat to this show. It shouldn't be either or. They can do both. Get away from the tired family comedies. These two shows are new, hilarious, and push the boundaries of comedy. They would make a great hour of comedy together.

I want the Bee in 23 to stay too. Recent sayings that Happy Endings is better than Modern Family and Suburgatory, are simply untrue. Modern Family still rocks it every week, and Sub does too, love me some Cheryl Hines Never seen a bad epi of MF, ever, but HE can stay, there's plenty of room...

HE is definitely better than Mod Fam and Suburgatory. That's not saying they're bad, they're just inferior. I'm actually enjoying Apartment 2 more than Modern Family now...its really gone downhill.

Phew, ABC had me scared for a sec when I didn't see Happy Endings in the list of renewals yesterday. HE had one of the most creative seasons in comedy this year, would have been unthinkable to cancel it!



Fringe is renewed, Community is renewed, Cougar Town is renewed, and now Happy Endings too! Year of my shows!

Meh, don't care. It started out great, it was this small quirky comedy that was so underrated. It was really funny and the characters were still grounded.... With the second season it turned into a complete mess, the characters are so annoying and over the top now and it just seems they are trying so hard. I mean, Max and Penny are so cartoonish now its just not funny anymore.

Actually, in the real world, it started out okay, and is now one of the best comedies on TV.
