In what should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been following the show’s rocky road since Day One, Fox TV has canceled Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse”. But at least they’re letting it run its course and will air all 13 of this season’s episodes, enabling Whedon to give it a proper send-off.
According to Variety, the show, which is currently in production on Ep. 11, will return on December 4th and run the nine remaining episodes in its order for the season. “This gives Joss the opportunity to end in a significant way,” the network said in a statement.
Whedon responds on Whedonesque.com:
Hmm. Apparently my news is not news.
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.
