Joss Whedon still wants 'Firefly' to return

You would think that, after more than 10 years and billions of dollars in "Avengers" ticket sales, Joss Whedon might have moved past "Firefly." You would be wrong. In fact, this hottest of hot directors still thinks about reviving his short-lived but much-beloved show. Is there a chance of Joss Whedon bringing "Firefly" back?In an interview with the Toronto Sun published on Monday (Jan. 28), Whedon expressed how much he still thinks about a show that lasted less than a single season. "I'll never really accept it," he said. "And I always, in the back of my head, think, 'What if I could get the old gang back together?'"Of course, anything like this is a long-shot. At the moment, Whedon is rather busy with work on "Avengers 2" and with "S.H.I.E.L.D." (the potential TV spinoff of the films). No director/writer/producer has the time to fit in a revival on top of that, no matter...

'Firefly' deleted scenes: River's marriage proposal, Christina Hendricks and more Battle of Serenity Valley

The Browncoats united, and fans of "Firefly" got to celebrate the show's 10-year anniversary. As part of the Science Channel special, three new deleted scenes were released, and they have now been posted online. Two of the scenes shed more light on the Battle of Serenity Valley that inspired Mal Reynolds' (Nathan Fillion) ship's name. One of them is a clip from the actual battle that was cut from the series' pilot, while the other shows Zoe (Gina Torres) telling Simon (Sean Maher) about the battle that so influenced the Serenity's crew. The third clip is a bit more humorous, as it shows River Tam (Summer Glau), well, being River Tam. Also, shout out for the Christina Hendricks appearance. You can watch all three clips below:...

'Firefly': Sean Maher wants Whedon to make 'Serenity' sequel

Few stories inspire the kind of passion and devotion shown by the fans of Joss Whedon’s "Firefly." The short-lived sci-fi western followed Capt. Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his crew as they stole and scavenged their way across the universe, trying to keep their raggedy spaceship Serenity afloat. "Firefly" was canceled a decade ago, but support for the show has spawned a movie sequel, comic series,  packed comic convention panels  and now a one-hour reunion special on Science Channel.

WATCH: Nathan Fillion Describes His 'Firefly' Audition In 'Browncoats Unite' Special

It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since Joss Whedon's " Firefly " made its debut -- yet after only 13 episodes and one unexpected movie, its impact on pop culture is undeniable. Not only was it the project that arguably launched the careers of Nathan Fillion (who recently paid homage to the show's legacy on a convention-themed episode of "Castle"), Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Gina Torres, Summer Glau and Morena Baccarin, it also became a cult hit thanks to its success on DVD. New fans continue to discover the show to this day, but with Netflix and other networks trying to revive other gone-too-soon classics like " Arrested Development ," "Firefly's" premature cancellation continues to be a source of frustration for the loyal Browncoats who supported the show from its inception. On November 11, Science Channel will pay homage to the beloved sci-fi series, starting with an all-day marathon at 7 a.m. and culminating with a retrospective 10th anniversary special, " Firefly: Browncoats Unite ," at 10 p.m. ET. The special reunites the original cast -- Fillion, Tudyk, Torres, Baldwin, Glau, Sean Maher and Jewel Staite -- with Whedon and executive producers Tim Minear and Jose Molina, as they recount the complete oral history of the show, from its conception to its heartbreaking cancellation and surprising rebirth as sequel movie "Serenity" in 2005. Above, watch HuffPost TV's exclusive clip from the special, which features Fillion recounting his memory of his first audition for the role of Captain Mal Reynolds, captain of the ragtag band of misfits who crewed the Firefly-class ship Serenity. The camaraderie between the actors is still evident to this day, and if this 10th anniversary special convinces us of one thing, it's that Joss Whedon needs to take all of that hard-earned "Avengers" cash and resurrect the series for real. Shiny . "Firefly: Browncoats Unite" airs Sunday, November 11 at 10 p.m. ET on Science Channel. Would you watch a "Firefly" revival? Are you excited for the Science special? Weigh in below!
