The cult-favorite series, Dollhouse, by Buffy and Firefly creator Joss Whedon, has officially been cancelled.
The move follows the network’s decision to not run the show in its Friday slot during November sweeps in the States.
20th Century Fox TV is currently producing the show’s 11th episode and “Dollhouse” is expected to finish up its 13-episode order. All 13 episodes of the Eliza Dushku-starrer will ultimately air on the network, with the 13th serving as the series finale.
Whedon posted the following reaction to the new:
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.
