Variety reports that Fox has renewed Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse” for a second season. The show has secured a 13-episode order and is likely to continue airing on Friday night.
Fox on Friday also picked up comedy “Brothers” to series with a 13 episode-order.
Meanwhile, ABC has renewed “Castle,” “Scrubs” and “Better Off Ted.” The network has given the green light to the murder mystery pilot “Happy Town” and an untitled legal ensemble show from writer Dave Hemingson. It’s also given the go-ahead to the remake of sci-fi drama “V” as a limited series and the Courteney Cox-starring comedy “Cougar Town.”
The networks will announce their fall primetime line-ups next week.
