Lana Condor, María Gabriela de Faría and Benjamin Wadsworth in "Deadly Class"

Syfy has pulled the plug on Happy and Deadly Class.

The former was canceled after two seasons and the latter after one. According The Hollywood Reporter, both dramas will be shopped by Universal Content Productions and Sony TV, respectively.

Happy!, based on the comic of the same name by Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson, starred Christopher Meloni as a corrupt ex-cop-turned-hit-man named Nick Sax and a tiny blue unicorn named Happy, voiced by Patton Oswalt.

Deadly Class, based on the Image Comics graphic novel of the same name by Rick Remender and Wesley Craig, starred Lana Condor, Benjamin Wadsworth and Benedict Wong. It followed an orphan who becomes a student assassin at King’s Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts. Avengers: Endgame helmers Joe and Anthony Russo served as executive producers.

The two dramas join Nightflyers, Channel Zero and Killjoys, also recently canceled by the NBC Universal-owned cable network.
