Thanks to TWO at Firefly.net for the heads-up.
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".

Firefly 10th Anniversary Panel at SDCC is brought to the fans by the Science Channel, but attendees will also get a special collectible bag featuring Firefly and the rest of the Science Channel Comic-Con lineup! See picture below :
I bet there will be a huge demand for those bags.
Also if you look closely to the Firefly illustration, it says "Firefly: 10-Year Anniversary Special, December 2012",which probably means the panel will be filmed and the Science Channel will air a special later in December.
And since the browncoats love collectibles, QMx has published this licensed, Nathan Fillion-approved image, taking its inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci’s famous drawing.
This shiny graphic will be available at San Diego comic Con 2012 and also online and comes under the form of a poster for $14.95 and a t-shirt for $19.95.
Dan Doolan, blogger at The Electronic Farmyard has listed its five personal "most soul crushing cancellations" on tv.
Not only is Firefly on top of the list (with a picture from the cast and a picture from Captain Mal) but the blogger has written nice and well-informed words for each of the tv shows.
The rundown of the best cancelled shows is as follow :
For the first time since 2008 (when it ran on USA Network), "Firefly" will return to cable as the Science Channel has acquired the rights to Joss Whedon's much beloved space western and plans on showing the entire series, in correct sequence.
Additionally, each episode will end with Dr. Michio Kaku, a renowned physicist, exploring the theoretical science behind the show's sci-fi concepts. It's a Science Channel, of course there has to be some learning involved.
Of course Nathan Fillion had to give his word on that news and he said that, given the opportunity, he'd play Captain Mal again.
Firefly premieres in HD on The Science Channel on March 6 at 8 pm, with the two hour pilot, followed by the first episode at 10 pm. Following that, Firefly episodes will air every Sunday.
