Hat Trick for the Browncoats!

That's right, ladies and gentlemen, all three shows relating to former Firefly personnel that were up for renewal have been picked up. (Sarah Connor has already been cancelled; sorry Summer.) Congrats to Joss, Nathan, and Adam! Dollhouse, Castle, and Chuck have all been officially renewed for 2009-2010. And there was much rejoicing in the land!! I think that means that every new show we tried and liked this year got a second season. Truly a miracle, since we can kill almost any new show, especially if we get any family members hooked on it.

Now, that doesn't mean there isn't a down side. I do believe that all three were only picked up for 13 episodes (that would be a half-season, generally speaking), so there is no telling when they might come back. Don't know if they will start the fall season, start the spring season, or be held in reserve as mid-season replacements for other shows that don't make it. I also hear that, for Dollhouse especially, the per episode price had to be dramatically reduced, which may affect quality. Time will tell. But still, it is a chance! I hope it isn't squandered.

Currently feeling: ready for next season!

  1. I'm happy overall but still kind of bummed about Sarah Connor - it really had some potential. :(
