|My suggestion for a revived Firefly series|

It's not Firefly related, but the writing takes inspiration from Joss Whedon's tv show (at least that's what the creators say). They have launched a kickstarter project, check it out:
A 120-page graphic novel chronicling a young girl's impossible mission to free a xenophobic alien race from an intergalactic syndicate.
Set in the far reaches of our universe, Horizon's End is a traditional tale of good versus evil with a Sci-Fi twist. We first meet Andara on the remote, backwater planet Usyel, as she and her mentor, Caido, attempt to free the pre-industrialized people from the Black Dominion - an intergalactic syndicate that preys on weak societies that haven't yet reached first-contact with off-world life.
The story quickly takes a tragic turn, though, as Andara finds herself alone on this hostile world, surrounded by a xenophobic race of aliens that simply see her as another invader. Our heroine soon learns that there's more to being a hero than charging in and smashing heads together. And she has to decide whether she can put the needs of an entire planet before her growing urge to simply mete out her revenge and move on.
Andara is, essentially, a rebellious teenager without a safety net. She’s thrown into a situation where she can’t rely on anyone. She has to depend on her wits to survive, while becoming an inspiration to others. And she has to do all this while dealing with her insecurities and, maybe more importantly, attempting to corral those inner demons of revenge. Maturity can’t be taught. It’s something a person learns on their own, when they’re ready. As cliché as it may sound, this is a coming-of-age story wrapped in a nice space opera bow.

I would watch it. I see the comparison to Firefly, as you hinted. I like the basis for the story - I've never heard that plot before.
Thanks for letting me know about it. It is now a tool to draw on.
All that said, you directed me to the gaming company which got rights to Firefly. Although it did not help me, I tried to use that try to get someone else to help me maybe two days ago. Thank you for it. I logged on now to look for someone else while another one I asked last night is pending. All thanks to your lead to that company.
Thank you for continuing to try and help me on this. Very appreciated.

Might as well ask Dark Horse if it wants my suggestion for free. Best way to reach interested ex-cast members is a comic showing the idea for the revival I had. Thank you for notifying me of this.

`Serenity Leaves On The Wind` Miniseries Coming From Zack Whedon. Serenity Leaves on the Wind has been announced by Dark Horse Comics. Joss Whedon`s brother Zack will write the six-issue miniseries for the publisher with the first issue landing in January, according to Nerdist. `The challenge is to create something that feels of a piece with the existing franchise --- but the Serenity/Firefly world is where I feel most confident,` said Zack Whedon. `Beyond that, the challenge is to make something good, something that feels like it is building on what is already there rather than just mimicking It, `The series will` plough forward into the future of these characters and tell new stories, which has been a lot of fun --- I know fans have been starving for story, so I don`t hold back in that regard.` Georges Jeanty, who has previously worked on Dark Horse`s Buffy The Vampire Slayer series, will provide artwork for the Serenity title. `Serenity Leaves on the Wind #1 will be released on January 29, 2014.

Thank you for this.
I wrote to Dark Horse thanks to the earlier post on it, but sadly it could not look at anything from me. So it could not help me regarding securing a revival of the TV show. But the above looks hopeful, given the storyline will be continued by someone Josh Whedon obviously trusts.

sorry to hear that you were declined about your thoughts and Ideas of a revival, but still you can hold your head up high and be positive, at least its been kept in the Whedon family, which is quite positive news I dont know much about Zack Whedon, but lets face it he is the brother of the master Joss Whedon, and to my knowledge that must speak volumes if ever their was a chance of reviving the awesome `Firefly` You cant stop the signal.

Yes Indeed they seem to have a talent when it comes to writing a script, whether its TV and Film or even comics, it just comes natural with the Whedon family, its just a shame they cant just put their heads together and sort out a follow-up to `Serenity` surely they must be more of the story to be told, we can live in hope I suppose.
