Happy Endings Cast


Cancel your New Year's plans — they probably sooked anyway — because VH1 has you covered with an ahmahzing marathon. On New Year's Eve, VH1 will start airing Happy Endings. That's right; it's the Year of Penny all over again!

VH1 will air all 57 episodes of the beloved ABC comedy in a marathon beginning Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. running through New Year's Day. Happy Endings then moves into its VH1 home of Wednesday nights from 7-9 p.m. beginning Jan. 8.

"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," Ben Zurier, executive vice president of programming at VH1, said in a statement. "The show's authentic voice, memorable characters, and smart humor really stands out, and we're really pleased to be able to provide new platforms for viewers to enjoy it over and over. Lots of times."

Happy Endings lasted for three seasons on ABC and starred Casey Wilson, Elisha Cuthbert, Eliza Coupe, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr. and Zachary Knighton. The comedy about six friends living in Chicago was canceled in May, but there was talk of it finding a new home. However, Happy Endings didn't get the happy ending it deserved and remained canceled.

Most of the cast of Happy Endings has gone on to find new homes across TV. Wayans returned to Fox's New Girl as Coach, the character he played in the show's pilot, and Pally followed to Fox with a series regular role on The Mindy Project. Coupe booked roles on House of Lies and The Millers, and Wilson has sold several TV show pitches with her writing partner June Diane Raphael.

During a recent Reddit AMA, Wilson revealed her favorite Happy Endings line. "I like the monologue when she is on the cleanse and says she used dryer sheets on her pits and splashed some water on her hush in the bathroom of an Au Bon Pain," Wilson said. Ah, classic Penny. Relive it below.

Wilson also said she'd be down to guest star on both New Girl and The Mindy Project so let's make that happen, K?

Happy Endings on VH1 starts Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 8 p.m.
