The Chris Meloni series based on an Image Comics series by Grant Morrison has been cancelled after two seasons. The second season apparently struggled in the ratings. The first season is doing well on Netflix, so there is a possibility of Netflix producing a 3rd season. It would likely depend on how well the second season of Happy performs once it is on Netflix -- only season one is currently available.

I recently finished the first season and would recommend it to anyone who likes a shot of heavy violence mixed with dark comedy and some elements of fantasy. I didn't realize this was based on a comic book when I started reading it. Didn't learn that until I was discussing the series with a friend who also reads comics. The premise is that Chris Meloni's character is an ex-cop turned hitman whose grade school age daughter is kidnapped by a psychopathic department store Santa Claus. Meloni is not aware that even has a daughter until her imaginary friend (voiced by Patton Oswalt) appears to seek his assistance in finding the girl. Other characters include the ex-wife, the ex-girlfriend who is a cop in service of a mobster, and the mobster's sister who is the star of a Housewives show.

I didn’t like Happy.  I did like Deadly Class which was also cancelled.  I’m a little pissed to be honest.

I haven't seen Deadly Class, but I did like Happy. I could see people losing interest, though, after the first season.

Apparently both shows are being shopped.  Probably to a streamer.  I'd guess Netflix or Hulu.  Amazon hasn't entirely embraced the "comics for content" strategy yet.  That may change if The Boys are a hit.
