Fans will be getting a treat this year at the San Diego Comic Convention, some members of the cast and the creator of Firefly, Joss Whedon, are reuniting for a panel. Sadly, not all of us Browncoats have the means to make the the trek to this high profile and crowded convention of geekdom. So, let me say this unanimously, bless you Science Channel.
Firefly is getting a shiny new TV special.
To celebrate the cult-favorite sci-fi drama’s 10th anniversary, Science Channel is shooting a new one-hour special chronicling the Firefly cast reunion at Comic-Con this week.
The special — titled Browncoats Unite — will include footage from Friday’s reunion panel, featuring several members of the original team including star Nathan Fillion and creator Joss Whedon. Plus, the cast is shooting an in-depth behind-the-scenes roundtable interview that will dive deeper into burning fan questions about the beloved series. Both the panel and the roundtable will be moderated by Entertainment Weekly‘s own Jeff Jensen. (EW.com)
There is no working air date. However, I wouldn’t surprise if a filming of that panel doesn’t show on Youtube.com shortly after it concludes. 🙂
