Happy! comes to Syfy in 2018

Meloonies rejoice! That's what fans of SVU hunk Christopher Meloni are called, right?! Happy! is going to series, and we can't wait to see Meloni's hard-boiled New York detective go toe-to-toe with Patton Oswalt's loopy-winged-animated-unicorn-type-creature. Here's the lowdown.

Happy! is based on New York Times best-selling authors Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name. The series follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni, Law & Order: SVU) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named “Happy” (Patton Oswalt).

Meloni tweeted a spoiler-laden, loquacious reveal about the show earlier this year.... juuuuust kidding, but we're thinking he's just getting into character.

 

Lots more series are coming or returning to Syfy before 2018, though. For more about our summer lineup check out our soup to nuts schedule here.
