To be fair, we have wanted a Happy Endings reboot ever since the series was canceled three years ago. But this weekend's cast reunion at EW PopFest only reminded us of how much we've missed this crazy gang of friends.
Zachary Knighton, Elisha Cuthbert, Damon Wayans Jr., Eliza Coupe, Casey Wilson and Adam Pally, along with series creator David Caspe and other key members of the show's original staff, reunited to read a "lost episode," written especially for the event. Titled "Happy to Be Here," episode 4x01 picks up exactly three years after we last saw the group, and spoiler alert: they're not doing so hot. In fact, they've all drifted apart, and you couldn't even really classify them as a group anymore.
Penny is in mall jail. Max is living in Washington. Alex is a super successful businesswoman, taking Xela all the way to London. Dave is living like Lin-Manuel Miranda, sporting the facial hair and even working on his own original play, Hamilton. And saddest of all, Jane and Brad have split, with Jane relocating to work at Toyota (which does not make toy Yodas, as Alex would have us believe) in Japan and Brad isolating himself in the woods.
Of course, by the end of the episode, the gang finds themselves back at Rosalita's, and all is right with the world again. Seriously, it is time to bring back Happy Endings. The group has still got it. The writers obvi still have it (if you only could've heard the laughter in the room!). What are you waiting for, networks? #BringBackHappyEndings
