Eliza Dushku Dishes Dollhouse Season 2 Tidbits


Just as we’re nearly a week away from the season two premiere of Dollhouse, producer and star of the sci-fi action-drama Eliza Dushku took some time to drop some hints of what’s to come during her appearance at Fox’s Fall Eco-Casino Party.

Dushku reveals that Echo acquires help from Paul, confirms Summer Glau’s guest starring, divulges Topher’s “field trip” from the Dollhouse, and spills some wedding details.

Check out a video of creator Joss Whedon sharing some more Dollhouse season two fun facts after the jump!

First Look: Dollhouse Season Two Promos

Dollhouse season two promos

Fox has released promotional photos for Joss Whedon’s latest brain-numbing action-drama show, Dollhouse, and let’s just say that he’s truly working with that small budget.

Aside from Echo’s psychedelic-colored, blatantly-literal dollhouse room, the individual cast members (photos after the jump) get kicked to the dumpy, $5 wannabe-Fisher-Price house. Season two of Dollhouse airs Friday, September 25.

On a side note, I’m still not yet prepared for Amy Acker’s impending absence. Will I really have to watch ABC’s Happy Town to get my Amy fix?

Small Budget Won’t Get in Whedon’s Way

Joss is back with a vengeance, apparently Folks over at Dollhouse are already two weeks into plotting its next season, and creator Joss Whedon could care less about the major budget cut this time around.

“I just wanted to die of tiredness. About two hours after starting to talk to the writers about story, I was back with such a vengeance, and so energized and so pumped because we really understand the show now. We understand what works, and what didn’t work so well or what we weren’t so thrilled about. We don’t have the onus of trying to be a big hit sitting on our shoulders. We can just be ourselves. And so the stories we’re breaking are pure, and exciting, and everybody’s on-board in the room, and it’s never flowed better.”

Yoohoo—do you hear that, Fox?

“Really, just every meeting is like, ‘What’s the most fun we can have with this actor?’ about the whole cast. All I can say—‘cause I’m gonna be Mr. Un-Spoiler—is that we’re having a crazy amount of fun, and usually, that tends to translate onto the screen,” he tells EW.

FOX Reveals Fall Schedule

Glee

With the spring season winding down, the fall season is already waiting to heat up this November. FOX has unveiled their upcoming schedule, so you can anticipate all through the long weeks of summer reality shows.

FOX staples like House, So You think You Can Dance and Bones will all retain their usual weekday time slots, with Fringe and Lie To Me both getting the renewal nod. The musical comedy will appear on Wednesday, right after the Dance results show.

Friday will be a night of new programming for some viewers, as FOX has shifted their much-moved ‘Til Death into this space with two newbies. Brothers will premiere at the top of the 8 o’clock hour, with Dollhouse rounding out the latter half of the 8-10 block.
