The return of Joss Whedon's 'Firefly'? Dark Horse teases new comic series
Browncoats -- lovers of the unfortunately short-lived series "Firefly" -- are some of the most passionate fan bases out there even 10 years after the show was canceled. Their loyalty is about to pay off: Joss Whedon's sci-fi space Western is returning.
Though the one-season-wonder won't be getting any more seasons, it will be brought back to life by Dark Horse Comics. Dark Horse has published "Firefly" books before, and revealed the return of Mal and his Serenity crew on its website with this image:
"Joss Whedon's beloved 'Firefly' series and 'Serenity' film's lifespan may have been short-lived, but managed to produce one of the most dedicated fanbases in the history of modern science fiction," the blog read. "Dark Horse is proud to be able to keep Mal and his crew flying with new comics and products. Look for the hashtag #WheresSerenity over the next few months on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages for exclusive news on the future of the franchise at Dark Horse!"
"Firefly" starred Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Morena Baccarin, Summer Glau, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher, Ron Glass and Jewel Staite. It lasted one season on Fox and spawned one feature film.
