Is 2016 the true Year of Penny? Well, it’s at least the Year of Happy Endings fans: Hulu kicked off the new year with a chance for fans to revisit all three seasons of the beloved sitcom
All 57 episodes of Happy Endings, which aired originally on ABC from 2011 through 2013, are now available to stream on Hulu. The series, created by David Caspe, stars Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Eliza Coupe, ELisha Cuthbert, Damon Wayans Jr., and Casey Wilson as a group of friends in Chicago. The series ran for a 13-episode first season, followed by two full seasons before its low ratings led to cancellation, but fans have kept fervor for the series alive since its end.
That love of the series peaked last year when a Twitter account for the Happy Endings writers posted a countdown clock leading to, unfortunately, nothing. Happy Endings showrunner Caspe told EW last year that the clock had originally been started without his knowledge as a prank, though then attempts were made to actually stage some sort of reunion to coincide with the clock. Those plans did not come together, nor did any of the speculation that a streaming service had picked up the series for a fourth season.
So, while the arrival of Happy Endings on Hulu is a-mah-zing news, it may still be best to take the Happy Endings writer account with a grain of salt, as it has also started up another countdown clock pointing to a “newer day” on April 1, 2016. (The first countdown clock ended with a message that the clock was “all for fun.”)

Whether the clock is pointing to any actual news this year or is just keeping in the tradition of last year, fans can rejoice in the series’ original three seasons finally having a streaming home on Hulu, which many of the castmembers also celebrated on Twitter.
