(Listen Joss is great, but he has been snarking at TSCC fans (shame on you Joss, when we came out for YOU and firefly you appreciated it, it got you a film right?) (AND season 2 of this crxp as well if I am not mistaken) and this Dollhouse is shxt without the Alpha storyline, it is a Whorehouse this season, nothing more, Joss can find something else to do, something good, something like Firefly, ANYTHING but this utter crxp)TerminatorRevenge2352352436

Anyway we WILL get to see Summer’s episodes, SciFiWire has the tweet from Variety

Fox is canceling Joss Whedon’s low-rated Dollhouse, but the show will wrap up with a “significant” series finale. Variety‘s Michael Schneider tweeted: “Official word from Fox: ‘We will air all 13 episodes and this gives Joss the opportunity to end in a significant way.'”

The news comes as absolutely no surprise to anyone, given that the show has seen its ratings bump along at a very low level since it came back for a surprising second season.

The good news (for fans, anyway) is that the show will be allowed to complete its 13-episode second-season production order, which includes episodes featuring guest stars Summer Glau and Ray Wise:

After some dismal performance in the fall, despite the ratings bumps “Dollhouse” got from DVR viewing, Fox benched the show for the November sweep after four episodes….

Update: GREAT news for Dr Horrible fans (a group to which we belong, see our previous posts here) Joss is well on his way in the sequel and WILL have good things to do now that Dollhouse is in the can:

Now, Whedon’s brother and co-writer Zack Whedon tells MTV that the sequel will get seriously underway once Joss’ just-canceled Fox series Dollhouse wraps for the season.

“They finish up ‘Dollhouse’ in the winter—at least what they’ve scheduled to shoot thus far—so hopefully when that’s done, we’ll all be able to get together more frequently and grind it out,” he explained. “There are a couple of songs written. It’s very promising. We’re all very excited about where it goes.”

He also confirmed that the sequel will feature Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) and Captain Hammer (Fillion). Duh.

“Yeah, you have to see them in the sequel,” he laughed. “We will expand the world a little bit into other areas you have not seen… and it will be hilarious.”

The entire Dr. Horrible creative team—Joss, Zack, brother Jed Whedon and Jed’s wife, Maurissa Tancharoen—are back for the sequel….
