Whedonites, I have some good news for you. Dollhouse will not be canceled, despite what you may have read online. Fox exec Preston Beckman (does a name get more executive-y than that?) has stated that the network will air all 13 previously ordered episodes of Joss Whedon's science-fiction drama, despite the show's sluggish numbers.
With the Arrested Development movie officially in development and a second Sex and the City flick in production, the Hollywood remake machine is shifting its focus to television. Here are a few shows we'd love to see on the silver screen.
Fox took a leap of faith last year when it opted to keep the struggling Dollhouse on the air despite the show's middling ratings. Show creator Joss Whedon pitched an overall vision of Season Two (and beyond) to executives, and they must've liked what they saw because Whedon still has a show. But there is no possible way they are liking what they see now.
We always knew there was much more to Joss Whedon's Dollhouse than the first season showed us. In the second-season premiere, we got a better look at where the show is headed, and it looks fantastic. However, it wasn't without some problems that plagued Dollhouse's first season.
Season One of Dollhouse featured sexy shenanigans, but there was more going on than just simple hotties for-hire. Learn about the inner-workings of the Dollhouse in our quick-start guide.
Faith is one of those unquantifiable concepts that's dying in today's truth-seeking world, reserved only for deities who routinely perform miracles (or have the right evangelists). For the agnostic television watcher, Joss Whedon is one of the rare figures deserving of faith; once again, he has performed another miracle.
Dollhouse has a lot on the line in Season 2 (premiering Friday, September 25), having been unexpectedly saved from certain death by Fox. But that's how much faith the network has in the show's creator, Joss Whedon, even after a shaky start to Season 1.

If you're standing up, please sit down. If you're prone to hyperventilating, get a paper bag now. If you are near anything that you don't want brain and skull fragments all over, step away because your head is about to explode. Fox has announced that Summer Glau will reunite with Joss Whedon and join the cast of Dollhouse.
Dollhouse didn't exactly live up to our live up to our (admittedly astronomical) expectations, but there's no doubting that, toward the end of Season 1, the program showed signs of the Joss Whedon brilliance we're used to. We've come a long way from our initial thoughts of abandoning the show outright (seriously, the first few episodes were barely watchable), and we're intrigued to find out what's in store for Season 2.
Let's recap Dollhouse's turbulent first season: The show gets announced with Eliza Dushku and Joss Whedon reuniting, fans hail it as the next big thing. Word leaks that there is trouble on set, the original pilot is scrapped, fans begin to worry. Studio executives ask for some retooling, which includes going in a more standalone episode direction, fans worry more. The first episodes come out, critics groan, fans suffer.
