First trailer for Happy! Season 2 will melt your eyes and blow your mind

Get ready, because you won't be able to unsee this for the rest of the day.

SYFY has debuted the first trailer for Season 2 of Happy!, the deliriously insane black comedy/crime/fantasy series based on the comic book by Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson.

By the end of the show's eight-episode first season, which premiered in December 2017, disgraced detective turned freelance hitman Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) had gained some of his dignity back, along with a blue unicorn pal named Happy (voiced by Patton Oswalt) and, most importantly, his estranged, kidnapped, and nearly slaughtered daughter Hailey (Bryce Lorenzo).

As Season 2 starts, Sax is apparently trying to stay on the relatively straight and narrow for Hailey's sake, avoiding his vices of the past — most of them, anyway — and the career path he was previously on. But since this is Happy!, you can be assured that won't last long. Take a look:

Whereas the first season centered around Christmas and a character known as Very Bad Santa, the show's second year deals with "the biggest holiday rebranding of all time" and a plot to "make Easter great again" (ahem) courtesy of last season's malevolent child-kidnapper Sunny Shine (Christopher Fitzgerald). Sax's detective friend Merry McCarthy (Lili Mirojnick) is keen to pursue Shine again, while Sax is reluctant to get back into the fray.

But back in is where he and Happy must eventually go, and if that trailer is any indication, things escalate quickly into some truly weird territory even for this show. Psycho Easter bunnies, men with no skin, brutal brawls involving senior citizens, exploding nuns, Hollywood legend Ann-Margret, plus Sax killing everyone in sight are just part of the fun in store.

Happy! returns on March 27 on SYFY.
