Joss Whedon Announces Post-Dollhouse Binge-Drinking Plans

Over at his official-ish website, frequent cancellation victim Joss Whedon has spoken out on Fox’s axing of Dollhouse this afternoon:

I don’t have a lot to say. I’m extremely proud of the people I’ve worked with: my star, my staff, my cast, my crew. I feel the show is getting better pretty much every week, and I think you’ll agree in the coming months. I’m grateful that we got to put it on, and then come back and put it on again.

I’m off to pursue internet ventures/binge drinking. Possibly that relaxation thing I’ve read so much about. By the time the last episode airs, you’ll know what my next project is. But for now there’s a lot of work still to be done, and disappointment to bear.

Thank you all for your support, your patience, your excellent adverts. See you again. -j.

So it sounds as though we might finally get a Dr. Horrible sequel? And another small bit of good news: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox is still reportedly planning on shooting and airing all thirteen episodes of Dollhouse’s second season (they’re currently in the middle of shooting the eleventh now) with the finale tentatively scheduled for January 22. Even so — sad emoticon!
