Happy Endings is a wonderful little show filled to the brim with pop culture references, bad hair, and Bar mitzvah dancers. Its abrupt cancellation in May 2013 temporarily robbed us of a reason to live simply because of the fact that there’ll be no new jokes from Max and Penny or traditional Serbian folk dance performances by the Kerkovich sisters. But fear not! The series has since been resurrected right here on VH1, and its creators and stars are all over TV and film in 2014.
Damon Wayans, Jr. had the easiest transition post-HE. He had already filmed the pilot for New Girl when Happy Endings was picked up to series in 2011. And despite a lengthy and rarely addressed absence, Coach returned to the loft this season as if little had changed. He’s a different character, but we’ve recently been introduced to his penchant for voices and booty taps during basketball games, so the spirit of Brad Williams is alive and well. Adam Pally also found a home on FOX via The Mindy Project, which managed to exploit Pally/Max’s ability to become the life of any party. Creator David Caspe has two new TV projects in development, which gives us hope there’ll soon be a show with the same kind of rapid-fire comedic brilliance that existed among Rosalita’s most loyal customers. But will this crew ever reunite on screen? “It’s like going to college and everyone leaves and goes to their jobs and it’s like, aren’t we all going to be together again?” Casey Wilson told VH1. “No, that person’s a lawyer, that person’s a doctor. We’d love to find a way to work together again — believe me, I’m trying. I’ll be lucky if I can get these guys at my wedding!”
