LOS ANGELES, July 25 (UPI) -- Showtime has decided not to order a second season of its dark, satirical comedy Happyish, which starred Steve Coogan, Kathryn Hahn, Bradley Whitford and Ellen Barkin.

The Hollywood Reporter said low ratings, mixed reviews and a lack of Emmy nominations were to blame for the cancellation.

Coogan replaced Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman in the lead role when Hoffman died just weeks after wrapping the series' pilot.

The show was billed as "a scathing examination of our pursuit of happiness, a pursuit that might just be the very thing causing our unhappiness in the first place."
