Happy Endings lives on in post-cancellation, at least all of its 57 produced episodes. VH1 has acquired the three seasons of the cult comedy from producer Sony Pictures Television. This marks a rare off-network deal for VH1, which doesn’t have other acquired series on its air at the moment. Happy Endings will make its cable premiere on VH1 with a marathon of every episode beginning December 31 at 8 PM running through New Year’s Day before settling into its new home on Wednesday nights from 7-9 PM, beginning January 8. In addition to airing the show on VH1, the network has licensed rights to make the series available online via its TV Everywhere platforms and also on the new VH1 App. “Happy Endings is one of our favorite network series, and we consider ourselves lucky to be able to add it to the VH1 line-up,” said VH1’s EVP Ben Zurier. “The show’s authentic voice, memorable characters, and smart humor really stands out.” Created by David Caspe, Happy Endings aired on ABC for three seasons and came close to getting a fourth season on USA but a deal could not be reached.
