Whedon Details How “Firefly” Could Return

During a recent  Reddit chat, Joss Whedon was asked how Firefly might come back for a second season.

Whedon put his tongue firmly in his cheek as he detailed the steps that would need to take place for us to get a second season of the show.

“Step 2: Cancel Castle. Step 3: Cancel Homeland. Step 4: Generally destroy everybody’s careers. Step 5: Avoid Step 2,” he wrote.

Step one  would probably be to start a Kickstarter campaign to get the show back.

Needless to say, it’s highly unlikely we’ll get more Firefly any time soon.

    It’s really time for people to let this show go.

    Anyways, Whedon does great for starting shows but does a terrible job continuing them. Look at the last season of Angel and Buffy. (Dollhouse was the exception where the entire run was terrible.)

      Why? It was some of the best television on television. If there’s a chance to see more I will take it. I’m not losing sleep over it but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like to see more.

      I say go for it joss. I loved every second of the series and my congrats for the job you and everyone did on SERENITY……. PLEASE TRY TO FOLLOW UP?

    Like Joss Whedon’s never pulled the rug out from under you before, Jim 😉

    I also would love to see more Firefly, but not continuing the show wasn’t Joss’ fault, and technically we got a feature film and some comics. That’s more than a lot of prematurely killed shows got to add.

    I also disagree on the Buffy/Angel thing… Buffy’s final season was far better than the previous one, which I thought was terrible until Willow became the real Big Bad, and the last season of Angel was inspired.

    Think about it: a season-long dig at how getting caught up in the corporate grind seduces you into the illusion that you can improve a corrupt system by becoming a part of it, all the while making you forget everything that’s truly important in life and everything that’s worth living for and fighting for… how can you NOT love his take on that?

    Truthfully, probably the only way they could bring it back would be as a reboot with a new cast. Sad to say but with most of the cast moving on and getting older there probably wouldn’t be any other way.

    And the season with Willow as the Big Bad on Buffy…hated the ending of that season…sorry Xander talking her down…I did not like Xander and I thought making him the hero by making him kinda Willow’s shrink was lame.

    I always liked Xander, and I think he did a good job with being “the guy” in the group, but who was also the one without any supernatural powers, being overshadowed in the fight so often by so many super-powered girls.

    I also didn’t think he was being a shrink in that moment… he was being a true friend, someone who didn’t want to see his best friend cross a line that she wouldn’t be able to come back from, or forgive herself for crossing if she ever came back to her senses.

    As a fan of the animated “Avatar: The Last Airbender”, I always wondered if Sokka’s character was inspired by Xander in any way… the goofy guy with no powers who wisecracks and stands by his friends no matter what. At least that’s how I saw it.
