Yes, the rumours are true… Fox has decided to cancel Dollhouse after the 13 episodes of season 2 finish airing in Jan. It’s a real shame as it’s growing into a great series, but not unexpected. The rating for season 1 weren’t great, and I rather think the only reason Dollhouse got it’s 2nd season was because no Fox exec was willing to risk the wrath of Whedon fans still bitter about the whole Firefly debarcle.
Joss posted these comments on whedonesque about Dollhouse’s cancellation:
“I don’t have a lot to say. I’m extremely proud of the people I’ve worked with: my star, my staff, my cast, my crew. I feel the show is getting better pretty much every week, and I think you’ll agree in the coming months. I’m grateful that we got to put it on, and then come back and put it on again.
I’m off to pursue internet ventures/binge drinking. Possibly that relaxation thing I’ve read so much about. By the time the last episode airs, you’ll know what my next project is. But for now there’s a lot of work still to be done, and disappointment to bear.
Thank you all for your support, your patience, your excellent adverts. See you again. -j.”
