According to Deadline, Fox made an announcement to reduce the number of episodes from 13 to 9. The decision was made as Fox is firming up scheduling plans. Fox is trying to process the midseason premiere dates, and since there are premiere of the other shows in the lineups, Fox had to make a difficult decision and due to scheduling had to make the cut.
There’s a lot going on at Fox especially since their popular crime drama, Bones, is in its final season. The network wants to accommodate each show and thought that Bones needed a good send off at the right time. Whatever may come, Making History will make its very own history and the stars will lavish in its true success.
