Firefly to return?

We all have dreams, actors are no different. The dream of one Nathan Fillion is to be tightpants-clad again for new Firefly episodes. And why not, he's been stating that the show was, quote, "the best job [he's] ever had". And why wouldn't people like ex executive producer Jose Molina (episodes "Trash" and "Ariel") and ex writer Jane Espenson (episode "Shindig") chime in? It was a great show made of awesome, win and the most enjoyable chemistry between actors and crew for which anyone involved could only hope. So we don't ever really hear anything substantially new, except perhaps that Discovery's Science Channel has announced to air (to cable?) the show. Which is a good thing nonetheless. Firefly rightly deserves any publicity it can get.

And publicity it gets, boy. Browncoats aren't exactly new to petitions and fundraisers, so when Nathe outlined his plan to use yet-to-be-won lottery winnings to buy the Firefly rights and even produce new episodes they promptly set up a website and a Facebook page to get the ball rolling without the lottery fairy's intervention.

Maybe this thing won't take off, Fox has yet to comment anything. I wonder if they would sit on those rights like Chevron sat on the NiMH battery patent for electric cars. Yet, just wallowing in the thought of more Firefly will surely cause the odd nerdgasm. I know it did for me.


  1. Loved the series, watched the movies and read the comics, I'm relly heartbroken after they cancelled the show, best scifi show ever

  2. Firefly and Serenity are some of the best things I've ever watched. I really hope they bring it back!
