One of the most wanted to be revived cancelled show by fans is the space adventure “Firefly” that ran for a few episodes in 2002 and then spun off a sequel movie “Serenity” a few years later. Ideas range from having an animated series to a “10 years later” movie. Hypable ran a Feb. 6, 2013 story in which Alan Tudyk, who played Wash in the series, was interviewed about the idea of bringing back “Firefly”
“You could find Mal living on some moon somewhere, and then somebody finds him. It’s that old set-up where somebody finds him and they’re like, ‘you’re needed.’ Something happens that he saddles back up, gets in the ship and goes. And he puts the band back together. And finds everybody wherever they are, to go do something.”
Of course the one problem is that Tudyk’s character, Wash, was killed off at the end of “Serenity,” so including him might present a problem. Joss Whedon, a talented and imaginative writer and director, would not likely do a “Search for Spock” scenario in which something has happened to revive the character. Of course, one would not put it past the Alliance to clone him. That could be the one thing, under Tudyk’s scenario, that brings the crew back together, even if he was living in contented retirement, perhaps with Anara having given up companioning for the love of her Captain.
Whedon is tied up, for the time being, developing “Avengers 2,” having become the most bankable director in Hollywood as a result of the success of the first movie. But maybe, just maybe, the crew of the Serenity could fly once again.
