'Happy Endings' Creator David Caspe: 'We're Done For The Year And Hoping Not Forever' (VIDEO)

"Happy Endings" has only two weeks left of its current season on ABC, but the comedy's creator David Caspe told HuffPost Live that he doesn't think it'll be the final goodbye.

"I just finished editing the finale so we're kinda done for the year and hoping we're not done forever," he said.

"Happy Endings" has struggled since being taken out of the post-"Modern Family" timeslot and was shuffled around ABC's lineup until settling in on Friday nights. "It's a huge luxury to be behind a gigantic hit show," Caspe told HuffPost Live of the show's former lead-in. "I'm not trying to make a tiny little niche show that no one knows about. I wish the show was a big hit like 'Modern Family' ... I myself feel like it's built to be more accessible and built to be a larger hit."

Though it has been a critical success, unfortunately, "Happy Endings" hasn't been a hit, for reasons Caspe can't explain. "It could be the show, it could be the time. It's sort of lightening in a bottle a little bit," he added.

Rumor has it that if ABC does cancel the ratings-challenged "Happy Endings" after its current third season ends on April 26, it could find a new home. According to Deadline, Sony TV, which produces "Happy Endings," has approached a few networks about picking up the show for a fourth season and USA has expressed interest.

"You have to make the show you think is good and funny, and either people will show up or they won't show up," Caspe previously told The Huffington Post's Maureen Ryan. "If you chase what you think will be a hit, it will never work. Even if you don't make it ratings-wise, you have to at least be proud of what you made."

"Happy Endings" airs Fridays at 8 and 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
