Syfy has canceled “Happy!” and “Deadly Class,” TheWrap has learned.

“Deadly Class,” which ran for one season, will be shopped elsewhere by Sony Pictures Television, while Universal Content Productions will seek out a new home for a potential third season of “Happy!”

An adaptation of the 2014 Image Comics graphic novel by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, “Deadly Class” follows a homeless teen recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations.

Newcomer Benjamin Wadsworth starred in the series, alongside “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” breakout Lana Condor, María Gabriela de Faría, Benedict Wong, Luke Tennie, Liam James and Michel Duval. Remender served as co-showrunner with Miles Orion Feldsott and Mike Betancourt. Executive producers included “Avengers: Infinity War” filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo and Mike Larocca.

“Happy!” is an adaptation of Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name. The series starred “Law & Order: SVU” alum Christopher Meloni as an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man whose life is changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy, voiced by Patton Oswalt.

Morrison served as an executive producer on the series alongside Meloni, Brian Taylor, Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty and Toby Jaffe of Original Film. Patrick Macmanus served as showrunner.
