Hey! Sometimes i can believe and wish upon rumors to!
While some TV shows are only popular while they’re airing, there are some small screen adventures that are cult hits, only continuing to grow in populartity in the years following the original run. And director/writer Joss Whedon has the distinction of creating multiple cult hits, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and his massively popular sci-fi adventure, Firefly. While the latter only ran for one season, Firefly has continued to remain in the lexicon of nerd culture and TV history, eventually inspiring Whedon to create the 2005 film Serenity to continue the show’s narrative. And the droves of fans should be super happy today, as three of Firefly‘s leads recently reunited, and there’s a picture to commemorate the occasion.
While the Firefly community would have been happy to enjoy the image Nathan Fillion shared on his personal Instagram, the Castle actor proceeded to tease the fandom with possible reunion talk. While Fillion didn’t explicitly confirm this possibility, his caption reads “What do you want to believe we talked about?”. Fillion seems all too familiar with how excited the fans would be with the photo, and how the rumors will likely fly regarding a reboot of the popular sci-fi series. And with all three actors enjoying a certain level of notoriety, it certainly seems like good timing for Joss Whedon to produce new Firefly content. Although he’s probably a bit too busy making various changes to Zack Snyder’s Justice League at the moment.
The three actors pictured in the above reunion pic are also extremely busy. Morena Baccarin is a series regular on FOX’s Gotham, while also starring in the Deadpoolfranchise as the title character’s love interest. Alan Tudyk just made waves as the delightful droid K-2SO in Rogue One: A Star War Story, as well as a lead role in NBC’s cancelled comedy Powerless. And Nathan Fillion is set to appear in the second season of Netflix’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events.
Let’s just hope that one day we will see the Serenity fly again!
