"We're pretty damn happy," Executive Producer Hart Hanson told Zap2it.com. "I had long ago given up the hope of getting an early pickup. I knew we were performing quite well, and we seemed to have a really solid audience that they couldn't shake."
An advantage to the early pickup is that the season finale can now be written knowing the show will continue. Hanson said he is writing the finale with renewed vigor because "now we get to do a cliff-hanger."
