It was the little ship that could. Joss Whedon’s ‘Firefly’ lasted only one season, but that season left a lasting impression on its audience and continues to draw new fans even to this day. It’s a cult classic celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2012. Many of the cast and crew were on hand for this week’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Nathan Fillion, series creator Joss Whedon, Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher, showrunner Tim Minear, and writer Jose Molina will be on hand for the reunion panel being held on Friday. One of the special things about the panel is that it will be filmed for parts of it to be included in a special documentary coming on November 11. Science Channel, who currently shows reruns of the show will broadcast ‘Browncoats Unite’, celebrating the show’s tenth anniversary.
“Firefly is a landmark work of science fiction and a favorite with our viewers,” said Debbie Myers, general manager and Executive Vice President of Science. “Ever since it premiered on Science, fans have asked us to do something special to mark its 10-year anniversary. With this signature celebration, punctuated by Browncoats Unite, we will connect the minds behind this classic franchise with its legions of passionate fans.”
Along with the Comic-Con panel, a round table discussion will also be filmed later on to go along with the special. The panel and round table will be moderated by Jeff Jensen of Entertainment Weekly.
