The hilarious cast of “Happy Endings” reunited and it looked like they had so much fun
Is it just us, or do you miss the ABC show Happy Endings as much as we do?
Well, we saw that they reunited at EW PopFest on October 29th in Los Angeles and all we can say is: Awwwww. (And why weren’t we invited?!)
But seriously, we couldn’t be happier that the cast was all in the same room again.
The six main castmembers — Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans, Jr., and Casey Wilson — did a table read together of a new script by Happy Endings creator David Caspe and as many of the show’s writers as they could get together, reported Entertainment Weekly. It was written specifically for PopFest.
This was the tweet promoting the event.
Here’s a few more shots of the Happy Endings cast reading the script.
There were laughs:
And more laughs:
And yet more laughs. Tbh, though, would we expect anything less?!
“Writing a script is super hard, and to write for a show that’s been cancelled for three years, it kind of doesn’t make a ton of sense, Caspe told EW, “but it’s fun to get back together… That the whole cast was instantly in — it’s just really cool and a testament that everyone really had a lot of fun.
And it looked like the audience had a lot of fun, too.
Annnnnd, in addition to having a fun time, it was also sentimental.
“We’re really happy to get to do something for charity in honor of Tracy Scott [who was Happy Endings’ script supervisor], said Caspe. The writers dedicated the script to Scott and made a donation in her name to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Aww. Best. Writers. Ever.
But we’re curious — what were some of the plotlines?
Since it’s a table read and not the show, Caspe said, “We’re not going to write some big physical race through Chicago if it’s just being read. That’s not going to be too exciting, so we focused on trying to get in a lot of jokes.
Caspe divulged three plot hints to EW:
“There was a huge fight one second after everyone was dancing on the dance floor at the end of the series. “The six of them have not been in the same room for 939 days. Until Saturday. “One of the friends dies.
Yeah — whaaaaaat?!
Intrigued? We sure are (and really want to get our hands on the script, or see if we can get a copy of the table read if it was recorded). Who knows? Maybe if enough of us beg, Caspe and his writers can film it, make our TV dreams come true, and create a truly ~happy ending~ for us all?
