Happy! renewed for Season 2 by Syfy

Happy! starring Christopher Meloni is getting a second season from Syfy

The first season of Syfy’s comedy series Happy! may not be over yet, but it sounds as though it’s made an impression: it’s already been renewed for Season 2.

The series proved to be a hit from the start, with the pilot episode becoming Syfy’s biggest premiere since The Magicians.

Happy! stars Christopher Meloni as an ex-cop turned hitman and the voice of Patton Oswald as his imaginary winged horse friend. The series is based on Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name. Patrick Macmanus serves as showrunner, while Grant Morrison, Brian Taylor, Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Toby Jaffe, Meloni and Macmanus are all executive producers.

You can read the synopsis for Happy! here:

Happy! is based on New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name. The series follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni, Law & Order: SVU) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt).
