The network has decided not to order more episodes of the show. However Fox "was quick to stress the series hasn't been canceled as they are simply capping its second season at 13 episodes". Dollhouse will finish production on all 13 episodes of the second season, and Fox will air all the episodes as previously announced.
Fox will not air new Dollhouse episodes during November sweeps, but it will air back-to-back new episodes starting December 4th, beginning with Summer Glau's two-parter 2x05/06 "The Public Eye"/"The Left Hand".
Don't forget to watch the last episode before the hiatus, this Friday's 2x04 "Belonging" which E! Online calls "the most touching, heartbreaking episode that Dollhouse has produced to date", and Maureen Ryan says its "one of the most emotionally compelling hours the show has ever done".
Fox has agreed to all 13 episodes for Season 2!
While that in itself is good news considering the show was on the verge of getting pulled of the air a week ago, it essentially means that any pick-up beyond that inital order of 13 will happen only if the show recovers in numbers and bounces back to where Fox wants it to be. That means that our efforts to promote the show should not stop here, we've still got a steep hill to climb.
According to Dollverse, Dollhouse is in danger of being pulled off air. There's an organized fan-campaign to promote the show in various ways. Let's help!
At 9/8c Fox will show "Vows" the first episode of Season 2. It was written and directed by Joss Whedon and will feature Amy Acker and Jamie Bamber.
"Vows" will also introduce us to Senator Daniel Perrin, who is trying to uncover the secrets of the Rossum Corporation. He already has a homepage and a twitter account!
