In case you couldn’t tell, we here at EW are big fans of Happy Endings. After a shaky first season, the ABC series came back roaring for its second year, nearly doubling its viewership. The utterly hilarious, insanely quirky show returns for its third season tonight after
an interminable a six-month hiatus. Series star Zachary Knighton, who plays the v-neck loving Dave, sat down with us to discuss the premiere, his ideal guest star and his feelings on a Dave/Penny relationship. So check out our interview below, then tune in to ABC tonight at 9:30 for the premiere!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How does it feel to have a third season?
Zachary Knighton: It feels really great. I feel like Happy Endings was one of those shows that didn’t get the big roll-out and I think that actually benefitted us because people feel like they discovered the show. That’s really awesome. That’s kind of what our show is: people’s happy little discovery.
