It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since Firefly first debuted on our screens.
To celebrate a decade of the Joss Whedon created series, Slice of SciFi favorite the Science Channel is hosting a reunion at this week’s San Diego Comic Con. The special panel will be filmed and shown later this year in November on the Science Channel.
The panel will include Captain Reynolds, Nathan Fillion as well as several other cast members and the series creator Joss Whedon. The cast is shooting an in-depth behind-the-scenes roundtable interview that will dive deeper into burning fan questions about the beloved series.
“Firefly is a landmark work of science fiction and a favorite with our viewers,” said Debbie Myers, general manager and executive vp 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.”
In addition to Whedon and Fillion, Friday’s 12:30 p.m. Comic-Con panel will feature Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher, showrunner Tim Minear, and writer Jose Molina. The special, produced by Pangolin Pictures, promises to unearth defining memories and first-person accounts of making the show from both sides of the camera. Browncoats Unite will air on Science, along with an all-day marathon of Firefly episodes, on Sunday, Nov. 11.
