I believe all the ordered eps were produced, which was 13, but those 13 don't complete the story. As I noted above, the creator has a 3 season run outlined, it's highly unlikely the "ending" will be contained in these 13 eps. Some have noted that it seems to be moving slowly, well, that's by design as it was expected to go 30+ episodes.
It's a 4 country collaboration, but given it's tanking badly in the US, I would guess that's it's highly unlikely the other members will complete it for airing in their respective countries(Canada, UK, Germany).
This should have been a mini-series style presentation in my opinion, but then the big dollars for the production probably wouldn't be there, it has a wonderful look about it, but a short run mini-series may not provide the back-end revenue to make it worthwhile.
You really do have to wonder why they even bother sometimes(speaking of the network, ABC in this case). Of course, the current eps are filling a spot in the schedule
