A star of the fan favourite US sitcom Happy Endings has confirmed that we might be getting a new, er, ending for the show as there's a special charity episode in the works.

Casey Wilson, who played Penny Hartz on the series, has suggested that it's still early stages, but the gang of Chicago-based friends will be making a return.

"We’re going to do a little reading of something at this time," the actress told Variety.

"We’re gonna get together and do a little new material… the writers, they’re tapping away."

We understand it's likely to a similar set-up to Parks and Recreation's 30-minute one-off charity episode, which was filmed in aid of Feeding America, a non-profit organisation that provides meals through food banks and community pantries in the US.

When asked about a full-blown Happy Endings revival, Casey was very coy and humble about the possibility of the show returning for more than a charity special.

"I’m like, do people want to see us at this age?" she asked, to which we say, of course!

The cult hit sitcom originally ran on ABC in the US for three seasons from 2011 to 2013. Alongside Casey, it starred Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr as six very quirky friends living their best lives in Chicago.

Watch Now Happy Endings (2011)

There were stirrings about a possible return for show last year – before the current pandemic put all plans on hold, that is.

Chief of US TV network Karey Burke told The Hollywood Reporter at the time that a revival was being looked into.

"Happy Endings was certainly one of my favorite ABC shows," Karey explained. "One of the things [ABC comedy head Erin Wehrenberg] and I bonded over when she came over [from Warner Bros TV] to take over comedy development was a desire to do a show like Happy Endings, which led to a conversation about Happy Endings."

Well, we're certainly excited to see our old friends again.

Happy Endings is available to stream now on Amazon Prime.
