The cult-hit comedy, currently in its third season at ABC, might wind up at USA Network if the Alphabet Net chooses not to pick it up for Season 4.

Sony TV, which produces Endings, has approached a few networks about continuing the crew’s shenanigans; our sister site Deadline reports that USA Network has expressed interest.

The news is a welcome surprise for fans of the quirky ensemble series, which was exiled to Fridays — often a harbinger of cancellation — last month. Its first Friday broadcast drew 3 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating with the 18-49 demo (and its second that evening fared worse), falling below its average Tuesday-night numbers.

  • Great news although i would hope Fox picks it up because it pairs perfectly with New Girl…Either way the more Happy Endings the more happy i am. I just don’t want it on ABC they dont know how to promote the show and Happy Endings isn’t an ABC type of show.

    • In fairness Abc did give it 3 seasons. Most shows don’t get anywhere close to that. Its just not a show that everyone will like but they did give it a chance. It would fit better on cable I think.

  • Dear USA, you are the best ever. First Psych, then Covert Affairs, then Suits, now rescuing Happy Endings? Your awesomeness surpasses all others.
    God Bless you USA Network

  • This will be the first time I watch USA in years, since Monk ended. I too would rather see it paired with Cougar Town on TBS, but really I don’t care where it goes, as long as it keeps going! I’m glad these cable networks realize the potential for shows when the regular networks treat them like crap.

  • I watched this show a few times, but found all the charactors unlikable and obnoxious (same BTW with other failed shows) If all the protagonists are obnoxious, the show usually fails. I just don’t like them, If it moves the USA, hopefully they will makes some changes.
