About an hour ago, I updated today's original Kidnapped news story with a report on how the struggling serial is wrapping production on its 13th and final episode as we speak, and that the entire demi-season "is bound to have a life on DVD," said my source. Now, TVGuide.com has procured an official update on the series' fate, from an NBC spokesperson: " Kidnapped will not return to the television screen after sweeps. However, the remaining eight episodes will run on NBC.com."

If only this newfangled "Internet" thing existed a year ago, back when Reunion was on.
