Why they won’t bring back Firefly, Ace.

Since you asked… if they bring back Firefly, then they have to deal with a fan base with views.  The browncoats aren’t going to take too kindly to the suits urinating in the mix again, and the suits don’t want to deal with a Joss Whedon, given that he would be in a distinctly superior bargaining position for it.

Besides.  No Wash.  No Shepherd Book.  That’s a hard thing to face.

    There are ways around the no Wash and Book issue. I mean, they could always accidentally enter a black hole into an alternate universe or something…

    I know it’s a pipe dream, but the could do another ship and crew. Wouln’t be Firefly though.

  • DLJessup says:

    There is another issue, which is how they’re going to scrape together enough of the actors to continue the series:

    * The actor playing Mal is playing the eponymous character in “Castle”, which did well enough to get a second season.

    * The actor playing Jayne is a regular on “Chuck”, which is getting a third season.

    * The actress playing Inara is one of the main characters in the reboot of “V” this fall.

    And, of course, any actors that they bring back will be able to command a higher salary….

    I personally never understood the fanaticism when it comes to Firefly. Yes I have seen the show and liked it, but there are better Sci-Fi shows out there… like Babylon 5.

  • Sue says:

    We live in hope. But there are ways around the loss of Wash and Book – firstly there are so many stories to tell between the end of the series and the movie – or before the series started – Book’s past etc.

    The real issue is the one of the actors all having full time work.

  • Josh says:

    They could always just ignore the movie entirely and keep moving with the firefly series from the point that Jubal Early is floating in space.

    Frankly, I don’t think the fans would mind it if the crew just kept on flying.
