By now you’ve heard the news there will be a Firefly reunion panel at Comic-Con. It’ll be wonderful and magical. Members of the cast and crew will be there. In person. Just being their lovely, hilarious selves. The whole room will be full of Browncoats celebrating the ten year anniversary of the little sci-fi show that could. And you won’t be there.
Yeah, neither will I, but guess what!? The whole panel is being recorded as part of an anniversary special, Browncoats Unite, airing on the Science Channel on Sunday, November 11th! How freakin’ shiny is that!?
Okay, something a little sooner than November would be nice, but at least this means we’ll have the chance to see the panel in all its Joss Whedon-Tim Minear-Jose Molina-Nathan Fillion-Adam Baldwin-Alan Tudyk-Summer Glau glory, without waiting in hopes for a grainy, cellphone video to be uploaded on YouTube. Though, I’m sure true Browncoats will watch those videos as well. In anticipation.
Debbie Myers, general manager and executive VP of Science, where Firefly lives on in syndication, had this to say about the anniversary special,
Firefly is a landmark work of science fiction and a favorite with our viewers. 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.
Oh yeah, did I mention Browncoats Unite will air along with a Firefly marathon? Just in case you don’t already own the series. And why hell don’t you, I might ask? Seriously guys, it’s only one season. One spectacular, amazing series and – oh god, why was it cancelled!!!
