FX has been forced to shorten the second season of their hit Courtney Cox drama Dirt. According to Variety, only seven of the season's thirteen episodes had been written before the writers' strike.

Even though the season has been shortened, FX is still going to air the episodes that are already in the can. The show centers around the editor of a celebrity tabloid.

The new season will premier Sunday, Mach 2nd at 10:00 pm.
