He returned the following year for another 4-month guest role while still in school. After graduating from 12th grade, Mullard decided to pursue acting full-time, and in 2016 he rejoined Neighbors as a permanent member.

In early 2018, he moved to the US and quickly landed the role of pop star Cooper James on the CBS sitcom Happy Together alongside Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West.

Happy Together is based on the story of English singer Harry Styles, who moved in with TV producer Ben Winston and his family to hide from the spotlight when pop group One Direction exploded in popularity.

After producer Winston offered him the part, Mallard received phone calls from Harry Styles and James Corden who convinced him to accept the part. Mallard originally auditioned with an American accent, but was asked to switch to his native Australian accent.

The show debuted on October 1, 2018, but after mediocre ratings, it was announced on November 28, 2018 that CBS had refused to order additional episodes of the series beyond the original order of thirteen. C BS canceled the show on May 10, 2019.
