In a bumper day for TV cancellations, Syfy has pulled the plug on Happy and Deadly Class while Amazon has done the same thing to Sneaky Pete. But will any of these shows find a way to live on elsewhere?
Deadly Class, based on the Image Comics series of the same name, boasted Avengers Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo as executive producers, but still didn’t manage to make a big enough splash for Syfy to maintain an interest in making it. The network has opted to cancel the show instead of pressing ahead with Deadly Class season 2, but is apparently open to hearing outside offers if any other networks are interested in buying the rights.
Happy, which was also based on an Image comic, is in a similar situation. Syfy has cancelled the show instead of putting Happy season 3 into production. The show found a sizeable fan base when it aired on Netflix, though, so it’ll be interesting to see if the streaming service swoops in to save the show.
Deadline Hollywood, a trusted trade publication, reports that both of those Syfy series are being shopped around, so we’ll let you know if we hear any news that comes from that.
As for Sneaky Pete, it’s been widely reported that Amazon has opted to cancel the Bryan Cranston-produced crime drama instead of pushing ahead with Sneaky Pete season 4. There’s no word yet on whether this one will be shopped around.
As we hear more, on any of these fronts, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
