DEADLY CLASS And HAPPY! Cancelled By The Syfy Network; Both Will Be Shopped Around To Other Outlets

The Syfy network has reportedly chosen to cancel Deadly Class and Happy!, forcing both shows to search for a new home. Hit the jump for more details on the cancellation of the two comic book adaptations.

In a surprising bit of news, the Syfy network has chosen not to renew Deadly Class and Happy!, two small screen adaptations of popular comic books, for another season.

Despite garnering fairly strong ratings during its first season, the numbers for Happy! reportedly experienced a significant drop during its second season. However, it has also been reported that the show is one of Netflix's top performing second window series. As a result, the production company UCP is working to make Netflix its new home, while still shopping the show around to other outlets.

Compared to Happy!'s sophomore outing, the first season of the Russo brothers-produced Deadly Class reportedly had stronger ratings, but they weren't strong enough for Syfy to invest in another season of a show they don't fully own. That said, Sony Pictures TV is also hoping to find Deadly Class a new home.

Happy!, which mixed live-action and animation, is based on the comic by Grant Morrison and follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) and an imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt).  Meanwhile, Deadly Class adapts the comic series from Rick Remender and focuses on the character Marcus (Benjamin Wadsworth), who is recruited into a school for assassins.
