American sitcom 'Happy Together' inspired by Harry Styles' early years in One Direction wasn't announced for a second series by CBS, but spokespeople still say a series 2 could be in the works.
We feel like it was only the other day we were telling everyone about the new Harry Styles inspired sitcom Happy Together hitting our TV screens two months ago, but people were worried when TV network CBS made a major announcement about it's upcoming shows and there was no word about the sitcom.
The CBS show, which aired in America, is said to have debuted with almost six million viewers but soon dropped below four million, with a TV source telling tabloids: "Happy Together just kept underperforming from week one and its time was limited".
However, spokespeople for the show have since denied rumours that the show is facing the axe and revealed: " the second series is likely to be confirmed, commissioned and starting to be filmed in May... which explains why it won't be on schedules yet'.
The rumours about the show's axing stemmed from CBS announcing shows for next year and Happy Together didn't feature, with sources citing the show's failure largely down to Harry's reluctance to be 'directly involved'.
The American sitcom stars Felix Mallard who plays 'Cooper James', a pop star whose character is based on the early days of Harry Styles in One Direction, hiding out in a normal thirty-something couple's house (Damon Wayans Jr., Amber Stevens West).
The show is based on the real life event of Harry Styles living in his producer friend's attic in London for 18 months unnoticed whilst going under one of the craziest years of One Direction's career, preferring a 'boring' family environment to living alone.
Ben is an executive producer on the Late Late Show With James Corden, who Harry is also good friends with, as well as for Happy Together, something Harry has also been cited as an 'executive producer' for in the past, although how much involvement he had on the show remains unknown.
