So technically it’s not official until they announce it on Monday, but sources say that Dollhouse will be renewed by FOX. Read all about it here.
Hooooly crap. I’m going to be honest. I didn’t see this happening at all. Don’t get me wrong, I had hope, but I certainly didn’t think that it would really happen. I mean, it’s FOX. What can you say?
Apparently, you say, “Save Dollhouse.” And they heard it. Heck, even I wrote an email. That’s not new for me, but I’m just saying…
According to the site,
…its DVR numbers are strong, online streaming is strong. It’s a sci-fi show, which tend to bring in nice ancillary revenue such as DVD sales for sister-company studio 20th TV. And it’s said that Fox execs rather like the series, especially the latter half of the season. Besides, a show airing in the fall on Fox is a bit like running in midseason on most networks — it’s not their strongest part of the year and maybe … maybe …
So, awesome. Now, I’ll be heartbroken if I hear that come Monday they’ve changed their minds. But sources are saying it’s true, so I’m happy. And it’s unsure what night it will be aired. Personally, I think partnering it with Fringe could give it a good edge.
So be happy, little Sleepies! I certainly am.
Update: More info here. Looks like they’re ordering a 13-episode season.
