According to THR, FOX has decided to pick up Dollhouse for a second season of 13 episodes. Through much speculation and rumors Joss Whedon’s newest show was thought to be dead by most, especially since the ratings were going even lower after Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles ended its season and no longer was the lead in show. However due to strong DVR and online viewership, FOX has decided to give it another chance with the caveat that future Dollhouse episodes are done on a lesser budget. Also it most likely stay at the sci-fi graveyard timeslot known as Friday nights. The official announcement for Dollhouse and other FOX shows will be on Monday.
I think this is great news, but I do feel disappointed, as it most likely means Sarah Connor Chronicles will not be picked up for a third season. There has been no such leak of good news for that show, which in my mind and a lot of people who have actually watched both shows, is a superior show to Dollhouse. I love Joss Whedon’s work, and as Dollhouse will continue, perhaps it will achieve the level of quality I expect from Whedon, but right now it’s my least favorite of this creations (haven’t seen Angel yet).
Let me know what you think about the Dollhouse renewal.
