'The Comedians' and 'Happyish' bite the dust
Two freshman comedy series will not be getting second seasons.
FX's "The Comedians" starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad and Showtime's "Happyish" starring Steve Coogan have both been canceled by their respective networks.
"The Comedians" cancelation was announced by showrunner Ben Wexler on Twitter, with the writer stating: "I could not be more proud of the work we all did." The "Happyish" cancelation was reported on Friday.
"The Comedians" was developed by Crystal alongside Wexler, Larry David and Matt Nix. It starred Crystal and Gad as versions of themselves who pair for a late-night sketch comedy series. The show aired its last episode in June.
"Happyish" starred Coogan as a depressed man working at an advertising firm who must contend with new, younger bosses. It was created by "This American Life's" Shalom Auslander and also starred Kathryn Hahn, Ellen Barkin and Bradley Whitford; the series shot a pilot with original star Philip Seymour Hoffman but they were forced to recast following the actor's unexpected death at age 46.
