HAPPY ENDINGS was one of the best surprises last season in terms of new half hour comedy. And now they are back with season 2 on Wednesdays at 9:30pm on ABC. Eliza Coupe (“Jane”) and Damon Wayans Jr. (“Brad”) recently took some times to speak to a few reporters on a conference call. And while it’s hard to really translate their hilarious banter in writing, here are a few things they had to say:

– Eliza Coupe said that she didn’t expect the show to make it to another season.

– When asked whether we’d find out how Jane and Brad met in a flashback, they responded that they didn’t know but would like to see that. Damon Wayans Jr. then joked: “She hooked up with at least 3-4 guys before me that night.”

– For those hoping to see Damon Wayans Jr. back on New Girl for a cameo, I’m sorry to say that Wayans doesn’t think it will happen.

– Eliza Coupe’s favorite moment from the show so far is the scene in which Brad and Jane decide to clear the table and go at it. “We broke a lot of stuff,” Damon Wayans Jr. added. “Everything broke, the napkins broke.”

– Damon Wayans Jr. talked about how funny guest star Rob Riggle was and said of him laughing while shooting the episode, “Hopefully they can make a show around me laughing.”

– In terms of Damon Wayans Jr.’s family members making an appearance, he said “my dad [actor Damon Wayans] might be coming back.” He then joked “I put a call out to the agent, so maybe he’ll get back to me.”

– Any hope of a return to Community for Eliza Coupe (who played Agent Robin Vohlers)? Coupe responded: “I think the writers of Community have moved on from my character. I would love to go back on, I had a really good time, but I don’t think it’s gonna happen.”

– When asked about improv on set, Damon Wayans Jr. shared “There’s tons of improv. That’s what I like about coming on the show every week. That’s what keeps me going.”

– As for what they’d like to see their characters do. Here is what they each wish for:

“I want to see Brad be a badass. Like Mr. T bad.” -Damon Wayans Jr.

“I think Jane could enter the army or we find out that she’s a secret agent or she just killed somebody.” -Eliza Coupe

– And then there was this fun little aside to talk about Dexter and his use of plastic:

“Dexter uses so much plastic. He’s not even recycling.” -Eliza Coupe

“This guys is a waster.” -Damon Wayans Jr.

And so that’s it for the cast of Happy Endings, but hopefully that got you excited to tune in tonight, October 5th, for a brand new episode at 9:30pm on ABC. You can read our advance review of the episode here.
