    Dirt just might not make it to a third season if cast projects are any indication. Ryan Eggold (Farber Kauffman) was just cast into The CW's 90210 spinoff and Alex Breckenridge (Willa McPherson) has been cast into CBS' Mythological X. Both are pilots but have been rumored to be top contenders for fall pickups, which would make Eggold and Breckenridge unavailable for Dirt.

    That's what I was thinking, too. Not only are Eggold and Breckenridge working on new projects, but Ian Hart is supposed to work on a film that begins shooting in September in New York. I'd love to see the show come back, but this abbreviated and drastically changed season left me a bit ambivalent. I'd love to see the show go back to its original format of the first season.

    I wouldn't rule anything out just yet. Ryan Eggold was only a guest star on the show and it's possible that Alexandra Breckenridge's pilot may not get a full season if not a second season, and she could always return as a guest star. If it does get picked up, I wouldn't expect production to begin at least in the fall, so Ian Hart's movie may not nescessarily get in the way of anything.

    It's always good to be optimistic! Hope you're right.

    It would be sad if Dirt is not picked up. The show is one on FX that doesn't exactly fit on the normal network schedule, so even if a character or two were to be picked up for a pilot, they might still be able to do Dirt. Anyway, characters do come & go on shows and there's always room a fresh face.

    As long as Josh, Ian & Courteney are still playing Holt, Don & Lucy; they can pretty much change anybody else.
    these are the 3 core actors/characters, the others are great for the show but not essential, so else could totally fite and even bring freshness.
    Id rather be optimistic.

    DIRT is great!

    If you read the Watch with Kristin blog over at E!, then you've already seen this, but for everybody else, she is reporting that she has a source saying that Dirt is dead. The network is spouting the usual garbage about how they haven't made any decisions, but this just seems like one more nail in the coffin for our show...

    That sucks. It really does.

    But I'm trying not to believe anything unless it comes from FX. That definitely makes me feel worse about it coming back.
