Firefly listed in "6 Shows That Deserve Netflix Resurrection"

Firefly Cast - Promo Photo

 

Everyone’s experienced the crushing sorrow of seeing a favorite new TV series cancelled just when things were getting interesting. Networks pick up a handful of new shows each season and just when you’re getting enthused, the show goes the way of the dodo. But wait, there’s light on the horizon! Netflix has recently announced that it is ordering new episodes of favorite shows that were canceled in their prime. Specifically, they’ve already ordered more episodes of the hit show Arrested Development and have approached CBS Television Studios to resurrect the post apocalyptic fan favorite Jericho, cancelled back in 2008.
 
The shows on that list are Pushing Daisies, Dark Angel, Dead Like Me, Deadwood, Carnivale and Firefly.
 
Here's the comment for Joss Whedon's short-lived show :
 
This is the no-brainer of the list. Fox’s tragic mishandling of Firefly from day one relegated the show to horrid timeslot shuffles and brutal episode shuffles that made the first season set to fail. The Browncoat nation would rise up in support of the resurrection in a second and have been lobbying since the show went off the air to get Fox and Joss Whedon to make more Firefly. That fan swell brought about the big screen resurrection of the series in the film Serenity and has supported its continuing adventures in comic book form. Now, with Joss Whedon having proved with The Avengers that he can print money for Hollywood, the chances of seeing more Firefly in the future might be good. That is, if Whedon can be tempted away from his upcoming Dr. Horrible project and the great Marvel machine. And if the cast can be tempted away from their various current projects.
 
 Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles has an "honorable mention".

There does seem to be a lot of interest surrounding Firefly but I freely admit that I am biased. It would be interesting to see some numbers that would show the amount of interest in Firefly. Any ideas?

I have no idea how to measure the interest in a Firefly resurrection and how to convert that interest in tv viewers.

We have the numbers from Serenity movie though; the numerous early screening scheduled before the nation wide opening (in September 30th 2005) were a success but the movie itself was not. I see no reason why a second season of Firefly or a sequel to Serenity should do any better.

You are probably right. The chances are most likely nil. I was hoping that Whedon's reputation following the success of The Avengers would give him more clout but I suppose too that he will be under enormous pressure to start the next Avengers film.

I know that Peter Jackson sponsored Neil Blomkamp to direct District 9 a few years ago. Maybe Whedon needs to sponsor junior directors and provide Summer with more roles. I suppose he is already doing so with the release of Cabin in the Woods.

I was listening to the podcast The Nerdist Writer and in one of them, Josh Friedman spoke about the role of John Wirth. He said that Wirth was hired to replace Friedman whom the studio was finding very difficult. Apparently the relationship between Friedman and the studio was very toxic. At any rate, Wirth and Friedman came to an understanding and Wirth actually became an ally of Friedman. After TSCC, Friedman decided to reinvent himself as Josh 2.0, a nicer, kinder, and gentler Josh.

Man am I rambling. My point is that there are many examples of collaboration that are positive and beneficial. I hope that Whedon can get involved in another project with Summer even if he is only on the sidelines.
