Cast of Firefly To Reunite – Big News Coming?

Cast of Firefly To Reunite – Big News Coming?

The entire cast of the cult science fiction TV-series ‘Firefly’ will reunite at Comic-Con this year. The occasion? The series’ 10th anniversary.

Stars Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher and Michael Fairman will be part of a special panel. Joining the cast will be the show’s creator and showrunner Joss Whedon, who recently directed the very successful movie ‘The Avengers’, as well as writer and producer Tim Minear.

As a fan of the original TV-series, I was excited to read about this upcoming reunion, but there is something else that got me even more curious about what will happen at Comic-con.

The Future of Firefly?

The official press release from the Science Channel about the reunion created a lot of buzz among Firefly fans (also nicknamed ‘Browncoats’), because of its last phrase:

FIREFLY 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
Friday 7/13/12, 12:30 p.m.–1:30 p.m., Room: 20

It has been 10 years since the crew of Serenity took flight in Joss Whedon’s short-lived but now revered series, FIREFLY. SCIENCE will reconvene, for the first time in a decade, Captain Mal Reynolds and the crew from the ship, calling all Browncoats to unite at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con.

The cast of FIREFLY will talk about the past, present and future of FIREFLY, 10 years after its debut. SHINY.

The text hints at “the future of Firefly.” Is this a tease for the announcement of a sequel to the 2005 movie Serenity that was based on the TV series?

Even though the movie didn’t do well at the box-office, sales of both the movie and the TV-series continue to do very well on DVD and on Blu-ray. Could the success of the Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers’ have paved the way for another Firefly sequel?

At Comic-con, there will also be some never-before-seen footage with “numerous buzz-worthy surprises” according to the Science Channel.

Have you seen Firefly or Serenity? What do you think about ‘the future of Firefly’?

    I love the TV show, and the movie was really good too. I would love to see more Firefly. I still lament that it couldn’t continue as a TV show for a few seasons. Thanks for the post!

    Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand… and so forth haha

    I own the series and movie on blu-ray, and I actually just re-watched them again a few weeks ago. A follow-up in either a mini-series or second movie would be really great! I’m so glad we only have to wait a few weeks to hear!
