Happy Endings: Rachael Harris to Guest Star in Season 3

TVLine is reporting that Rachael Harris will be guest starring on ABC's Happy Endings next season. The veteran comedy actress will be playing a realtor named Suzanne tasked by Dave and Alex to find the newly happy couple a place to live in the second episode of the upcoming season. At the end of last season, the two found their way back to one another at Derrick's wedding after breaking up in the series premiere. It may seem a little soon to go from reuniting to cohabitating in two episodes, especially since Dave has had multiple flirty encounters with Penny recently, but the change in dynamic (and subsequent reaction) should be fun to watch.

'Happy Endings' Season 3 Scoop: The Year Of Penny Is Over?

It looks like The Year of Penny is over. "Happy Endings" Season 3 will kick off with plucky Penny (Casey Wilson) in not so great spirits, according to executive producer Jonathan Groff. "We're starting Penny off in a rough spot this season -- the Year of Penny was not exactly that fantastic ... Brian Austin Green gave us a little bit of hope for her and we'll lean into that in the beginning, but it's still gonna be a rough start for Penny -- in a way that will only make us love her more, I think," Groff told The Huffington Post. However, Penny will be dating. Groff said the lucky man hasn't been cast, but he won't be taming Penny Hartz's heart. "We want him to be a nice guy that she meets in a typically awkward Penny way, she's always gonna be flirting with screwing it up -- that's all we've thought of so far, we haven't figured out how to blow it up, which we'll probably want to do at some point, because it can't quite be time for Penny to settle down yet." In May, Wilson told HuffPost that Brian Austin Green "may come back." But she has other hopes for Penny. "I think it would be fun for her to date someone just because I think it would be relatable how she drives it into the ground with her paranoias and insecurities and low self-esteem," Wilson added. Season 2 ended with Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) and Dave (Zachary Knighton) rekindling their romance. Season 3 will see the two continuing down that road. "We are going to see Dave and Alex dating," Groff said. "We think we need to do that because they never really had the break-up/make-up thing that I think the show needs. It just feels like we ran away from it a little bit in the first couple of seasons, sort of explored Alex at the end of the first season thinking she made a mistake, then second season tentatively moving them towards each other a little bit. It feels real, we always try to make a decision based on what feels like might really happen, even though the show's kind of outlandish at times. We try to go, 'In these relationships, what would actually happen?' So we're going to explore that at the beginning -- I'm not saying it's going to be smooth, but we're going to explore that." And what about the rest of the gang? Season 2 ended with Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) losing his job and Season 3 picks up with Jane (Eliza Coupe) in a work setting, which Groff said "will be kind of cool." Plus, look for Brad to live life the Max way since he's unemployed. "It's gonna be a challenge for him not to work, but he's gonna try to explore that," Groff said. "So that'll give us some good Brad and Max stories." Executive producer David Caspe said there are plans for Max (Adam Pally) to get in another relationship. "[W]e'll hopefully get him in a relationship again because we thought that was really great, him and James Wolk," he said. "And hopefully we'll have Derrick (Stephen Guarino) back." No guest stars have currently been tapped because writing is ongoing, but Caspe does have some plans for a visit from the Jane and Alex's parents. "We'll meet the Kerkovich parents, so hopefully we'll get some funny people," he said. "Happy Endings" returns for Season 3, Tuesdays, 9 p.m. ET on ABC in the fall. Get your DVRs ready.

'Happy Endings' Finale: Brian Austin Green Is Penny's Skype Buddy

After a second season that saw the series gain both in critical acclaim and critical buzz, " Happy Endings " (Wed., 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC) closed out its sophomore run in much the same way it began its series run. The gang came together at a wedding. But while that wedding was a disaster between Dave and Alex that never happened, this wedding saw the pair of them in a much better place. And suddenly Dave at the center of a potential three-part love harmony. Mere moments after Penny wrestled with her own feelings for Dave, he and Alex shared an intimate moment, some meaningful glances, and finally closed the night by clasping hands while watching the reunion of Max's all-male Madonna tribute band, Mandonna. But while Penny may have had some confused feelings about Dave, she had no confusion about the instant connection she shared with guest star Brian Austin Green as Chris, a man with a broken leg "attending" the wedding via Skype. They met when Penny was put in charge of the Skype table. But when their connection crapped out, Chris was so interested in her, he had a friend drive him to the wedding so they could sort of dance together. The big change in the group dynamic for this finale came with Brad, who was abruptly and unexpectedly fired from his seemingly high-paying job. He spent much of the week terrified to tell Jane, but finally broke down and let her in on the potentially huge life change facing them. But this is Brad, so it's hard not to imagine him bouncing right back. "Happy Endings" has yet to secure a third season officially from ABC, though things are looking positive for the ensemble show.
