VH1 to re-air episodes of 'Happy Endings'

By Marie Blake,

VH1 is scheduled to re-air all 57 episodes of Happy Endings, which was cancelled by ABC.

Entertainment Weekly reports that VH1 will host a Happy Endings marathon from New Year's Eve at 8 p.m. throughout New Year's Day.

It will then settle into its regular time slot of Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. starting Jan. 8.

Entertainment Weekly reported back in May that ABC's decision to cancel the series was not an easy one.

"I do think Happy Endings is absolutely on brand," Paul Lee, ABC's entertainment chief said at the time. "What we found was it was just too narrow. It was a very hard decisions because, as you know, I love that show and I found it very hard to make that decision."

Super Fun Night and Mixology were expected to bring in a wider audience, and therefore were picked up, causing Happy Endings to get the boot. Super Fun Night stars Rebel Wilson and currently airs on Wednesdays.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the shows cancellation did not leave its stars hanging dry. Damon Wayans Jr. and Adam Polly have roles on New Girl and The Mindy Project, and Eliza Coupe will appear on The Millers and a pilot for USA.

Episodes of Happy Endings will also be available online via VH1 platforms.
