James Hibberd over at the Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Fox on Monday will announce that “Dollhouse” is getting a 13-episode second season.
Fox announces its 2009-2010 schedules on Monday.
Great news for those who remember that “Dollhouse” creator Joss Whedon’s “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” got a LOT better right after its 12-episode first season (with the introduction of Spike, Drusilla, Oz, Jenny Calendar and whatnot).
Maybe Summer Glau can join the cast as Foxtrot?
“Dollhouse’s” first season fared poorly in Fox’s Friday Night Death Slot, but consistently better than anything else Fox was airing that night.
Also, one suspects the execs at Fox looked at their pilots and muttered something like, “None of these is anywhere NEAR as promising as that show with the ‘Bring It On’ girl.”
Fox is reportedly looking for budget cuts on the series, but that may not be a big issue for Whedon, who made the DVD smash “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog” for the cost of shoelaces and beer and reportedly directed an (as-yet-unaired) bonus episode of “Dollhouse” titled “Epitaph One” for about half the cost of a regular episode.
