Joss Whedon, Eliza Dushku Reunite for Fox Series

Joss Whedon fans, listen up: The man behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel is coming back to television with a a new series for Fox that could premiere as early as this spring.

What's behind Whedon's return? Eliza Dushku, who will star in the series. The actress recently signed a big development deal with Fox and then called up Whedon to talk; while they were at lunch, he hit on the idea for the show.

The series, Dollhouse, focuses on a group of futuristic agents — including Dushku's character, Echo — who are given various personalities and skills in order to complete special assignments; at the end of the mission, their memories are wiped clean. Whedon told TV Week: "It deals with our darkest impulses and our best ones. It deals with all the things I like to deal with — strength, weakness, power and corruption." Fox has already ordered seven episodes of the hourlong drama.

So, Whedon fans, your thoughts? Liking the concept? Worried it might get the Firefly treatment?

I *love* Joss but she bugs me like no one has since Jennifer Love Hewitt. It's a completely irrational response, I know, but seeing her face makes me want to just smack her! lol WTH is that about?

The idea sounds kind of strange to me, but I'm delighted to have Joss and Eliza back together again, and hope Fox gives the show a fighting chance.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! eeeeeeee, that's what came out of my mouth when I heard Joss was returning to television. I know he had retreated after the BS with Firefly (which I'm still angry about) and how he was treated there, but I am so excited to hear him and Eliza are pairing up again. And the premise of the series sounds intriguing, I can't wait! Joss Whedon is my master now. ;) *Off to reminisce with Firefly*

Woohoo! A special Halloween treat from Joss to us. I'm thrilled to hear he's coming back to tv; I love reading his comics, but I think tv is the best place for him.
