Unfortunately, yes. We wrestled with the schedule. We were originally coming back early January for two episodes, but then the Olympics were going to preempt us for two weeks after that. Then we'd be back on for another two, then another preemption, etc.
We decided we were better off delaying the premiere and then running the final 13 episodes completely interrupted. We felt it was the better scenario given the very scattered broadcast schedule we were facing.
In terms of the hiatus rumors, no worries, we're shooting episode 14 now, prepping 15 and 16.
