Firefly-tweet.jpgWhile perusing Nathan Fillion‘s Twitter feed, as any woman in her right mind is wont to do, we came across a particular Tweet that is making geek hearts explode all over the internet. It read, “Hmm Hmmmmm HMMMMMM tiny.cc/wnba9.”  That magical link takes you to a blog by comic book writer (and all around cool guy) Marc Bernardin called, “Could Netflix Bring Firefly Back From the Dead?”

Oh my dear and fluffy lord, would that it were true! (And yes, that is from “Serenity,” the film that is essentially the second season of “Firefly.”) Bernardin suggests in his article that Netflix, which has resurrected “Arrested Development” and plans to make more episodes, might be able to do the same for “Firefly.”

As Bernardin states in his blog, Syfy has already looked at the possibilities and decided the budget wouldn’t work. Fox has the rights. The “Arrested Development” deal, however, changes everything.

Bernadin, who is currently writing “Static Shock,” one of DC Comics’ New 52 was kind enough to give us his thoughts on the blog and getting Nathan Fillion’s notice. He said, “Despite some of the comments, I didn’t write the post just to rile the
Browncoats, dangle sweet resurrection before their eyes and then snatch
it away like, well, a person who snatches things away. I wrote it
because I’m a massive fan who also happens to be an entertainment
journalist. And when I saw the news that Netflix was both pushing into
original programming and bringing back a cult favorite like Arrested
Development, my brain went straight to Joss Whedon’s late, lamented ‘Firefly.'”

He continued, “Obviously, it means a lot for someone like
Nathan Fillion to even take note of it, let alone spread the word, but
I’ve always gotten the impression that no one wants more ‘Firefly’ than
him. And as the entertainment landscape continues to shift, more and
more things become possible. I only hope this is one of those things.”
