.....'Deadly Class' and 'Happy!' canceled @ Syfy......

Deadly Class, Happy! Cancelled at Syfy

.....Syfy has dismissed Deadly Class and also has some sad news for fans of Happy! The cabler has cancelled both series, TVLine has learned.

Deadly Class, which wrapped its 10-episode first season in March, will be shopped around by Sony Pictures Television. Meanwhile, the Chris Meloni-headlined Happy! ended its second season last week. Universal Content Productions will also shop the show around. (Happy! found success on Netflix in its second window run. It stands as the streamer’s top performing second window drama, outside of You, in key male demos and teens.)

Based on the comic book series of the same name, the 1980s-set Deadly Class was set at an elite private academy where students are trained to become assassins. The cast included Benedict Wong, Benjamin Wadswort, Lana Condor, María Gabriela de Faría, Luke Tennie and Liam James.

Happy!, which was also based on a comic book series, launched in December 2017 to strong reviews and decent ratings. Viewership, however, took a nosedive in Season 2. It centered on disgraced former detective Nick Sax (played by Meloni).

Syfy is the king.......or early cancelations.........?!

I don't think that they promoted season 2 of Happy! well enough.

It was a mad ride. I like that they didn't just leave the emotional trauma from the first season by the wayside and I think they were true to the characters in the various ways that stuff worked out.

It dragged on a bit towards the middle, but the last few episodes more than made up for that and I'd really like to see what that ending was leading into.

I enjoyed the first season of Happy! on Netflix and just bought the second one on Amazon Prime, not wanting to wait for it to hit Netflix. Too bad.
