Happy Endings is one of the better surviving sitcoms of the last few years. The ABC comedy struggled through two (more like one and a half) seasons, including an odd out of order experience during the first, but managed to secure a well deserved third because the content appearing on-screen was rarely lacking. Okay, content rarely drives renewals, so let’s say that the ratings were just good enough to convince the network to continue on with a show that shows so much promise.
On top of the stellar cast, obviously the most important component to the success of any sitcom, Happy Endings has also managed to land a string of great guest stars that certainly helped buoy individual episodes or even add much needed dimension to some of the characters, examples including Paul Scheer’s Avi in the former and and James Polk’s Grant for the latter. Just last week, it was announced that Rachael Harris would be making an appearance on Happy Endings and now, Rob Corddry has also signed on for a third season guest spot.
TVLine reports that Corddry will be on at least two episodes of this coming season of the comedy with a multi-episode arc as the owner of a car dealership. That seems like the perfect sleazy position for Corddry to slide right into, just like he’s done with excellent recurring spots on shows like Community (“Tango, Sundance”), Arrested Development (Moses Taylor aka Frank Wrench) and, of course, his gig as various correspondents on The Daily Show. Casey Wilson’s Penny brings Eliza Coupe’s Jane along when shopping for a new ride and the laters auto-prowess impresses Corddry which lands her a gig selling cars. Coupe recently quoted @happywrites confirmation of Corddry and added her own bit of commentary.
Happy Endings Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, October 23rd at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. It stars Adam Pally, Eliza Coupe, Damon Wayans Jr., Casey Wilson, Elisha Cuthbert and Zachary Knighton. It was created by David Caspe.
