The hype for Terra Nova has been going on for a very long time.
But Fox sources now confirm the prehistoric, special effects-laden drama will air a short first season: for budgetary reasons, Terra Nova will only air 13 episodes, wrapping up in December.
Terra Nova premieres with a two-hour episode on September 26, and it's not the only highly-anticipated series expected whose inaugural season will only be comprised of a handful of episodes.
Fox's Alcatraz, along with NBC's Smash and Awake, will also air 13 installments.
