It’s been a while since I have updated this site but I think now is an appropriate time. According to reports, Dollhouse has been canceled by FOX. Although the remaining episodes of the 13 order will be go to air as planned:
This has been a busy week for cancellations. The latest addition to the TV graveyard: Dollhouse.
According to multiple insiders, Fox has informed Joss Whedon that it will not be ordering additional installments of his low-rated drama beyond the current 13-episode order. On the bright side, the network still plans to burn off the remaining unaired episodes beginning in December. Hey, it’s something.
Dollhouse has been averaging a mere 3 million viewers this season. Last season — when fan support, together with significant budget cuts, helped it to get an odds-defying second-year pickup — the show averaged 4.7 million.
I’ll have more to say on this in the coming weeks once we get official confirmation, and I’ll also give my first and final thoughts on the episodes that have aired. Although I had my issues with the direction and quality of the series, it’s never nice when a show that had so much potential gets canceled.
