Happy Endings
might be getting a happy ending after all. Emphasis on "might."

The stars could be aligning for a resurrection for the fan-adored, still-canceled sitcom, which starred Damon Wayans, Jr., Eliza Coupe, Casey Wilson, Adam Pally, Elisha Cuthbert, and Zachary Knighton as six hilarious, pretty incestuous pals yukking it up in Chicago. ABC pulled the plug on the show in 2013 after three seasons, but Bustle reports that there might be a second act in the making. 

A Twitter account for the show's writers posted this mysterious tweet on Friday. It's clearly a countdown to something, and the "It's almost a new day" suggests a positive development. Basically, we have 52 days to find out what, exactly. On the other hand, we've noticed that the clock stops running on April 1. April Fools' Day. We hope that's just a coincidence and not the set-up for some horribly cruel joke. 

Anyway, it's worth mentioning that Wayans, Jr. and Pally both recently announced their departures from their respective Fox sitcoms, New Girl and The Mindy Project. Coupe is also a free agent following the cancellation of Benched. Two snags are that Cuthbert and Knighton are both attached to 2015 sitcoms, while Wilson — who is married to Happy Endings co-creator David Caspe — is currently starring in his new show, Marry Me.  

Whatever. We'll settle for Max moving in with Brad and Jane. If that happens, this will be us:
