Summary of Happy Endings Season 1- 2 DVD Box Set
Happy Endings is an American television series for the ABC network. The single-camera ensemble Comedy premiered on April 13, 2011, as a midseason replacement, with a one-hour premiere of two back-to-back episodes starting at 9:30 pm ET/PT. In the weeks that followed, the show continued to air back-to-back episodes that began airing at 10:00 pm ET/PT.
On May 11, 2012, Happy Endings was renewed for a third season and will feature 22 episodes.
The series revolves around the lives of six Friends living in Chicago: married yuppies Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) and Jane (Eliza Coupe); Alex (Elisha Cuthbert), Jane's ditzy sister; Dave, (Zachary Knighton) a food truck owner who used to be engaged to Alex; Dave's gay roommate, Max (Adam Pally); and their chronically single friend, Penny (Casey Wilson).
The series first begins with the six Friends dealing with their group dynamic drastically changing after the breakup of the couple that first brought them all together, Dave and Alex. This leaves the rest of the group (Max, Brad, Jane, and Penny) in the awkward position of either trying to stay together as Friends or having to choose sides. Dave and Alex decide to stay Friends, but there are many more complications down the road.
While the initial "complications following Alex and Dave's breakup" premise was the focal point in the earlier episodes, this premise has mostly been abandoned as the series went on, as the focus became more about the group dynamic of six best Friends, in a similar vein of "Friends hanging out" ensemble comedies like Friends and How I Met Your Mother. Typically, each episode features two plot lines, in which varying combinations of the six characters find themselves involved.
