SyFy, one of the leading networks for comic book culture has decided to cancel both ‘Happy!‘ And ‘Deadly Class’!
The shows, which are both based on comic books, will be shopped by their respective studios, Universal Content Productions and Sony Pictures TV, according to to The Hollywood Reporter.
Happy! stars Christopher Meloni as a cop-turned-hitman named Nick Sax, who awakens after a heart attack with a new pal named Happy, a blue animated horse voiced by Patton Oswalt. The show is based on the comic of the same name by Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson, and executive-produced by Crank co-director Brian Taylor, among others. Happy just finished airing it’s second season and will not be renewEd for a third.
Deadly Class is an adaptation of Rick Remender and Wes Craig’s comic about an elite private high school for budding assassins from the world’s major crime families. The show is executive-produced by Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Benjamin Wadsworth, Lana Condor, and Benedict Wong. This series is being cancelled only after it’s first season.
This news comes as a shocker especially after the praise Deadly Class had received from viewers. Syfy had recently announced its renewal of the DC comics based series Krypton, which follows the earlier years of the alien plant pre-Superman. That particular series had mixed reviews all around.
No telling what Syfy has Planned for its future or what will possibly replace the two cancelled shows, but we will be front and center with all the latest to keep you all up to speed!
