Cancellation Buzz: FOX Airing 12 out of 13 Dollhouse Episodes - Featured


Fox has announced that the season finale of freshman series Dollhouse will air on May 8th, concluding with an episode titled "Omega", the 12th Dollhouse episode produced.


But Dollhouse has 13 produced episodes, you say!


And you are correct. The 13th episode of Dollhouse, "Epitaph One", will be included on the show's DVD release (dropping July 28th), as will the unaired pilot.


As for if this implies that the show's chances of renewal are in trouble...some say yes and some say no. It's possible this is a bad omen, but it's also possible that the network merely decided that the 12th episode is a more natural season's conclusion.


Stay tuned...


Update: It's being reported that the unaired pilot is being considered one of the 13 episodes, which would make "Epitaph One" technically the 14th episode and not officially part of Season 1. So, don't interpret this as a cancellation just yet! More details

I literally think I am cursed. When a really good show comes along that I really enjoy... it gets canned. Veronica Mars, Women's Murder Club, Jericho... I hate that money obsessed networks no longer care about quality - it is all about quantity. I really hope this doesn't go too. It's got potential and it hasn't gotten into it's stride yet. It's not looking good.

I can't believe that fox maybe canceling another show... for what putting in the rumored show of 'people who got fired during the recession' reality tv show.

So it's the final week in May when Dollhouse's fate is decided. I like the way they call it 'Upfront Week' as in they are upfront and tell you to your face if its cancelled.
Fret not fellow fans, there is still time and I feel we're in for a big finish so keep the eyes glued to the screen and hold on to hope in your heart.......it's not over yet!

They better not do to Dollhouse what they did to Firefly! This show still has a lot of potential, and could be pursued from many different angles. No way is it finished!
The DVD release of the first season is due out in July. I read that if pre-sales are high, it will increase the probability of having a second season, though I don't know if that is fact or a simple ploy to get money. Personally, I like to wait until a series is finished and buy the boxed set. But if it will help get us a second season, I may have to make an exception.
Also, I don't think it has been determined yet that TSCC is over. They preview tonight's episode as the season two finale and not the series finale, so that gives me hope. There is also a new Terminator movie coming out, and killing the TV show may hurt the movie.
There is still hope for both shows. It's just going to seem like a long wait until the end of May to find out their fates!

Wait, Reaper came back for this season...is this it? I don't think all the Whedon heads out there will let Dollhouse die. I think they'll set the studio on fire if they lose another show...I mean they kept Buffy and Angel going well past the point where both shows "jumped the shark"; and Buffy jumped that sucker good. I think we have a shot...'fingers crossed'

I would probably cry if Dollhouse got cancelled. I'd be so distraught that I'd volunteer to join the Dollhouse so as not to have to deal with my sorrow.

To be perfectly honest, I find the thinking behind 'Dollhouse' very creepy and very sinister. I don't think the basic premise, that the people involved are being used as prostitutes against their will, is interesting - I feel in my bones very uncomfortable about it and I don't feel that the 'adventure' side of it outweighs it.I did watch it, I admit, because of course, the sex wasn't really shown, but plainly it was hinted at. I just think it crossed the line into a bit nasty.I suspect Fox did too.

If Fox can do one thing properly, its cancel promising new shows. Screw you Fox, if someone were to say you sucked the proverbial balls of crappy reality shows, it could be said you were faggots.
