Will Firefly fly again? (speculation). Via Kristin at eonline.com

"A friend just saw Nate Fillion, Summer Glau and Gina Torres coming out of one of the exec buildings at Paramount where they are putting together the new CW unit.

Hmmmmm? Will Firefly fly again?"

No, they're remaking "Two Girls, A Guy and a Pizza Place".
I would die.

But the question on everyone's(my) mind is:
Was there a Llama on site?
Wishful thinking, and sounds speculative of course. Joss is doing other stuff, no? Anyhow, good news. :)
Oh specultion here we come! I sincerely hope it is something new, or could be a cast commentary?
I don't know if my heart couldn't take the continual hoping for new stuff. Like the constant speculation about a possible Spike movie. I want more new Firefly soooo much more than Buffy 'verse stuff!
sigh.
*hornet's nest*

Poke! Poke!
Sigh. I'm getting quite tired of this. I will enjoy seeing whatever Joss does next, be it a remake of the Flying Nun or a cartoon version of Black Orpheus. It's not my job to decide what project is most worthy.

With all respect, I think there's a point at which fans stop being fans and start being annoyances, and when fans are documenting every coming and going, and speculating thereon, I think that could get pretty annoying.

YMMV and all good wishes.
Maybe it's Angel - Nathan final gets the role he auditioned for all those years ago. Summer Glau would be Fred/Illyria (now that Amy is on Alias ans their are rumors of a spin-off). Gina Torres would be Gunn'c cousin (Since J is now working on a new show). Of course James Marsters will be returning as Spike.

Angel the Next Incarrnation.

:)
All 3 of them were on either Buffy or Angel...
Gina Torres would be Gunn'c cousin


... who looks remarkably like Jasmine. I wonder if anyone'll notice. :)
If rumors were horses, then the internet would smell pretty bad.

Really glad there's no smell feature on computers yet.
The internet without rumours is like a body without blood.
But the question is, was Joss with them? Well, actually, the question is did this really happen, and if so what does it mean? Just jumping the gun a bit.
nixygirl - YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary
Amen, nixy. More Firefly, please.

Unfortunately, even if Kristin's friend did see them, all it really means is that they were in the building, and then left. Sigh.

Of course, but that's such a boring way of putting it, don't you think? ;)

A Jossian "Flying Nun." Wow. That's almost as bizarre and enticing a concept as the Clem-centric "Sex and the City."
I was contemplating the other day what season two might entail. One can surmise from Serenity what the other episodes of season one could have been. If we infer that the motion picture was the equivalent of a two hour/episode finale for season one (in an alternate reality where FOX wasn't run by space monkeys), and including the 14 eps which actually exist (the pilot is counted as two), that means there were (at least) four episodes we never saw. Maybe six. Let's keep it at four for now.

Let us pretend Dead or Alive was next in line, as is the apocryphal assumption of many a fan. Admittedly, after reading it, I think it would have undergone a couple retreads before seeing the cameras. Still. It's good work. That leaves three. One would be called Haven and would have dealt with Book leaving the crew to serve at Haven. I won't detail the plot here but there's quite a potential story in Book debating whether or not he could serve better for the people of Haven, and the conflict of Mal pushing him away. Next would be called simply Inara and would focus on our favorite space hooker confronting the others with her decision to leave, and how each would take that. Mix that in with the subplot about some 'job' and you got a good mix for a filler ep. Last would be Special Delivery which would be an amusing episode where the ship is hired by Mister Universe to pick up and deliver his soon-to-be wife. This would introduce Mr. Universe so it wouldn't be so hokey to have Mister Exposition just magically appear in the movie two hour finale.

That takes care of season one. What would be the plot arc for season two? Quite intriguing. Each character has a direction set forth by the movie two hour finale of season one. Jayne is getting sick of being everyone's whipping boy. His desire for mutiny would increase, and failing that, he would contemplate leaving. Only realizing he had nowhere in particular to go. Simultaneously, the others on the crew would start to find he does belong with them, and that they've been taking him for granted. Why? Because of Zoe.

We learned in Heart of Gold that Zoe and Wash were trying to have a child. Actually, Zoe was trying and Wash was reluctantly going along with it. In the first episode of season two, Zoe learns her period has been skipped. She talks with the doctor about it. Only they know, or so they think. Zoe would spend the next few episodes trying to hide it from everybody, until things like morning sickness and that she started to show would make that impossible. Of course, River knows before everyone else. Mal would probably find out at an inopportune time, where during one of their jobs something happened that made it plain Zoe was 'sick' and Mal would insist Simon do something to fix her. Eventually it'd come out and everyone on the ship would know. It's a small ship. Impossible to hide something like pregnancy from them for long. Would be VERY interesting though to watch Zoe try.

And that brings us to River. She replaces Wash as pilot, and with Kaylee's help they manage to pull more energy and capability out of the ship than one would imagine. Zoe would at first tolerate then later resent River's replacing Wash, and even moreso later when Zoe was out of commission that River would be replacing her. River can do things with Serenity that Wash could never do, making her more and more an integral part of Mal's plans for his ship's future. Maybe she even figures out how they can have some form of weaponry that doesn't show up on Alliance scans, but that wouldn't be till near the end of season two. Once Zoe is discovered as being with child, Mal would refuse to have her accompany him, and there'd be a lot of conflict there cuz Zoe's not the sort to just sit somewhere and eat pickles & ice cream. However, even she'd be forced at some point to admit that she can't fight like she used to, at least until her child is born. By about halfway through the season, Zoe's piloting Serenity when River's by Mal's side. There'd be some conflict there but eventually River would turn to Zoe, because while River has all this capability, she doesn't quite have the world weary experience that Zoe does. River would see Zoe as a mentor, and could learn things from Zoe that mere scientists couldn't put in River's head.

So Mal would start requesting River accompany him, along with Jayne. However River's unpredictable and takes his direction either too literally or not at all. She's a loose cannon, and while still haunted by other secrets and memories she's yet to conquer, she's also harboring a growing almost guiltful appreciation for her powers and abilities. In season one she held what they did to her as a curse, but she begins to see it more as a blessing as she takes ownership of what has been done to her and learns to cope with it all, but this will cause the others to completely freak out.

Kaylee and Simon's relationship will continue to grow and have its ups and downs. Inara and Mal will also face their mutual affection, but Mal will continue to confound her. He doesn't want her to quit her job, but he also can't abide being with her if she's just going to go off and be with others for money. So we'll learn that among other things, he's a hypocritical prude. Then again, we kinda already knew that.

The blue hands men were practically ignored in the film, but would rear their ugly heads again in season two, as the Parliament would continue trying to reclaim what they believe to be theirs.

The fact that all their friends who had ever harbored them have been murdered would not only make it more difficult for the crew of Serenity to find work in places where they have been, but it would make it harder for them to find work anywhere, as news spreads that anyone who befriends Mal ends up pushing daisies. Meanwhile, a new political faction would emerge. Indeed it's been around since the end of the war but was scattered and had no direction. When Mal sent the signal about Miranda, it started a chain reaction among the remaining Independents, and even some who supported Unification but are now getting second thoughts. These individuals would find one another and would have a concept in common: they would want to renew the battle against the Alliance and they would want to have Malcolm Reynolds, the man who learned the secret of Miranda, to be their guiding star.

Mal just wants to go his own way. He put the civil war behind him years ago. He'd be no more interested in supporting the Independents now than he would be in taking root on a core planet and not misbehaving. He just wants to fly his ship and make a meager living. He doesn't have lofty goals, but this growing insurgence of rebellion against the Alliance would continue to grow despite his attempts to ignore them, and if he chooses not to join then they will eventually perceive him to be yet another enemy. "You're either with us or against us" will be their plea, and he won't be able to walk away any more than when Jayne called him on his failure at Serenity Valley.

After other failed attempts by The Parliament to either persuade or force River Tam to rejoin their ranks, the end of season two would reveal that River was not the only 'graduate' of Doctor Mathias. A fellow 'classmate' of hers from the Academy would confront her. Perhaps earlier on he's introduced as one of the insurgents, but it turns out he's a double agent, who's job is to befriend River and the ship only to cripple them and drag them back to the Academy, to end River's wandering once and for all.

Also some point about one fourth to one third of the way through the season, an episode would reveal that Badger, portrayed by Mark Shepherd reprising his role from season one, is on the run. His house of cards on Persephone has fallen apart due to a coup/mutiny by his own hired minions, and the only place he can turn to avoid certain doom is none other than the crew of Serenity. By halfway through the second season he becomes a new regular. Why? Cuz Badger's cool that's why.

There's still endless possibilities here. If this never gets put back on the boob toob, there is no justice in this verse.

Wow that was a seriously long comment. But anyway:

If we infer that the motion picture was the equivalent of a two hour/episode finale for season one...

Except that Joss has already stated the movie was mainly a compression of story arcs intended for season two.
In order to not build on false hopes I'm sitting here desperately thinking of a reason why that trio would visit that building together... And... Well... I'm drawing a blank... I'm just gonna assume that the original poster was delusional and started to see things. It's better for my sanity.
...was mainly a compression of story arcs intended for season two.

I understand, but I don't comprehend. That may have been what he planned before, but what goes up on the screen (little or big) is canon. Had the series been allowed to flow as it originally intended, yes we probably would not have seen River be what she is now for two years. That's water under the bridge. I'm working with what exists not what it would have been. In fact, the four "season one" episodes I describe above would ideally end up as either flashbacks incorporated into season two, or entire episodes featuring characters now believed to be dead. Somehow we'd have to fill in the blanks of those missing eight months between Objects In Space and the film.

My point, and I do have one, is whether or not Kristin actually "saw Nate Fillion, Summer Glau and Gina Torres coming out of one of the exec buildings at Paramount," there's still a tale to tell here. It may not be the original tale Whedon wanted to tell when he started, and it most certainly won't be the tale I just weaved above, but the variables are still rich with possibility, and it will be a disservice to the 'verse if it's not somehow brought to fruition.

Wonder Woman be damned. Even Buffy be damned. The Firefly must fly again. You can't stop the signal.
Thank you Invisible Green altho, I still don't understand the expression. I kinda get it.

Whoa ZachsMind that was kickarse! A very enjoyable read indeed! You've got the whole next season wrapped up nicely there. I'd really love it if we got to see it.
Sigh....again.


Wonder Woman be damned. Even Buffy be damned. The Firefly must fly again. You can't stop the signal.

Powerful words there.
Just to like point out that we are talking about Kristin here. Not the most reliable of gossip sources.
ZachsMind - Have you read the comics? Personally I would love to see an expanded version of those as episodes. (I think things were resolved WAY too quickly in the third comic, and several elements felt uselessly thrown in, like Dobson. It would be great to have him return, but he was such a throw-away in the comic he merely wasted a couple of the too few pages.)
I bet Nathan, Summer and Gina were there for talks about the Caleb, ballet dancer, and Jasmine TV movies that Joss wants to create.
Or they could just be auditioning for pilots and decided to hang out together since they're all friends. Who knows. I'm not reading too much into this. (Although I would love CW forever if they bring back Firefly)
It makes so much sense for the CW to relaunch Firefly, or is that launch Serenity The Series, or maybe they should call it something else, after all it will be a new beginning. Won't Joss be happy, he will get to introduce the characters, again, for the fourth time?

The CW Network would be the perfect launching platform for more Firefly. I think Firefly would make a great high profile show for this new network and it would fit in well with the other shows that the CW has, Veronica Mars, Smallville etc.
It's a nice dream. But until I hear something more substantial, I refuse to get my hopes up. I've already had the sky taken from me twice...couldn't stand a third.
Did Kristin see Ace Underhill leaving the building, too? ;-)

In other words, it is a speculation about some gossip that "a friend" saw. Like TamaraC said, just stirring the hornets nest without much fact. OTOH, it gave a great chance for KeithG and ZachsMind to give us two show proposals, both great in their own ways (either LOL or whoa, dude, that's deep!). :-)
It makes so much sense for the CW to relaunch Firefly, or is that launch Serenity The Series, or maybe they should call it something else, after all it will be a new beginning.


Why? Firefly got cancelled because it lost Fox money and didn't get enough viewers. Serenity didn't succeed at the box office. I'm not utterly convinced The CW would want a "failed" franchise as part of their new line up.
I agree...until Joss says so, it's all just speculation. But isn't it fun to think about it, and hope there's a smidgeon of truth in there somewhere?
It's entirely possible CW is trying to sign all three for a talent holding deal (NBC did this with Fillion back in 2002). Or the actors were trying out for pilots - it is, after all, pilot season.

These people know each other, so if they went in for something like the above, they'd probably wait for each other and go some place.

Or maybe Kirstin wants some hits on her column.
Re: the alleged sighting, does anyone know if there's a nice restaurant in the Paramount building ? It could easily be something as simple as 3 friends meeting for lunch so I definitely won't be counting any chickens (it's hard when they keep crossing the damn road anyway;).

Wow, another epic from Zachsmind with some really interesting speculations. As has been mentioned the film took us upto the end of season 2 but I think there's some meaty ideas in there for season 3 and beyond. I'm not sure about Zoe resenting River tho' and partly just because I don't agree that River could do things with the old tub that Wash couldn't. Tho' she's off the chart smart, psychic and pretty handy with an axe to boot, River just, IMO, doesn't have the almost savant ability with the flying that Wash had. Wash not only had 'the right stuff', he was made of it.
The pilot season explanation makes the most sense. But also, and I say this from zero actual experience in the biz but with lots of reasing about the working of H'wood, a meeting guarantees nothing. That's what these people do, take meetings and pursue interesting ideas and people, and try to make it work. But there are a million ideas borne and tested out and meetings are held about to every one TV show or movie that actually gets made.
Kristin isn't the most reliable source, but would she really make this up? I mean, it's one thing to make something huge out of a simple comment, but in this case (her friend saw them leave the building - which isn't really open to interpretation) I see no reason not to trust her. Still, as some people have pointed out, it probably doesn't mean anything (for Firefly) anyway.

Just thinking - UIP (Serenity's international distributors) is owned by both Universal and Paramount. Chances are they have offices in Paramount, which is also the place the actors were apparently seen exiting. All 3 actors worked on Serenity.

So, two things: you could speculate they were doing international publicity for the Serenity DVD - eg press interviews, conference calls etc with the UK (which is currently having it's promo done - DVD Review has a phone interview with Gina, for example). This is most likely the case.

Otherwise; you could speculate they were meeting The Powers That Be over Serenity.
Between the optimism and the pessimism, the delusional and the realistic- I am getting a headache.

I am just going to continue playing Serenity sequels in my head.

By the way- SO VERY NUDE, the best by far.
So very nude had lots of foot movement. And my gosh, River, leave Jayne alone already.
Just to like point out that we are talking about Kristin here. Not the most reliable of gossip sources.


But she sure is skilled at driving traffic to her site. Hats off.

Given the article we had linked a few days ago, how Buffy supposedly killed the WB and UPN, Im thinking, wouldnt it be cool if Firefly came back and killed the CW?

If I was runnign the CW, Id be hiding under a desk right now.
I'd have thought the suggestions of them being there to plan or work on a commentary was more likely than planning for a future Firefly/Serenity show or movie.
Nixygirl, I feel the same, my heart can't take all this speculation, hope, expectation, desire, dreaming, longing ... wish, conviction, faith, belief, need for more Firefly... however, addicted I am to them. *sighs*

My name is coolpeace, and I am Firefly addict ;-)

BTW, Zachsmind, good stuff.
It's a nice dream. But until I hear something more substantial, I refuse to get my hopes up. I've already had the sky taken from me twice...couldn't stand a third.

BAFfler


I'll second that.
If you notice, the reported sighting never said that they were together.The wording suggests it but doesn't say so.
And as much as I like River, I do not like the idea that River would be a better pilot than Wash, so I part ways with you there, Zachs Mind. Otherwise, great.

No, but her columns over the years seem to indicate that she's as much of a fan as we are.

OK, but Dead Wash might not make much of a Reaver slayer.
I'd like to believe that Kristin would not have posted something like that if there wasn't some truth to it. After all, from what I gather, she is a Joss fan too. I just don't see her making this one up. Maybe gossi is right and they were only there for publicity. I hope more news comes out soon. Even if it is to shoot this rumor down. I don't know how much more of this I can take.
OK, but Dead Wash might not make much of a Reaver slayer.


Well, if you dropped him from high enough ...
Friend saw them coming out of the lot? Or friend on the lot saw them actually coming out of one of many offices on the lot?

If it was them, who knows who they were visiting, or why? And how does this person know they were in someone's office and not visiting someone (a former cast member maybe) on a set?

People, they also could have been there together by coincidence. There are casting offices on the lot. Actors run into each other like that. Calm down, will ya? That's like seeing Shatner and Nimoy coming out of the Paramount lot and people thinking "Wow! Is Star Trek coming back?" ; )

Also, River is the perfect choice for ship's pilot. She "knows" Serenity better than anyone. Even better than Kaylee. Remember, River could name exactly the type of ship Serenity is. (See "The Train Job") She walks through the ship barefoot most of the time. She touches the walls. She actually feels the ship intimately.

Oh, and the notion of Zoe being pregnant? Please. Yeah, maybe she wants a baby, but she's not stupid about their situation. She's not the type. That's my two and a half cents, anyway.

By the way...am I the only one who missed THIS?

Gotta side with Simon there. I'm sure Kristin's nice, and I can see she's a fan, but the times she got things completely wrong....pfffff.

Especially after she announced that Angel S6 was already approved way early in S5, I tend to take her with grain of salt the size of a bowling ball. I think buzz is more important to her than accuracy.

I think you're being a tad unfair simon. Kristin is a big supporter of Firefly and the Buffyverse. She regularly nags shows to take on the actors who are in need of more screen time.

I'd rather have a verse supporter that has a 'half-full cup', rather than a gossip columnist who doesn't give two hoots for our favourite shows.
By the way...am I the only one who missed THIS?


Well AmazonGirl it was posted here but I'm sure you're not the only one who missed it. Things do move pretty quickly here sometimes.
Well, in fairness Whedonesque could run every gossip story under the sun - but doesn't. If I said to Caroline that Serenity 2 was in the can, they wouldn't run it as a story.

Kristin's works for a company who earns it's profits from advertising. Visiting the linked page? You're looking at advertising. Her job is to generate traffic to that mag.

And, of course, she's succesful so all power to her.
Siding with Simon here. As much as I'd love to have the show come back, this seems really like something just to get tongues wagging again. She didn't even see this herself but a "friend" did. This type of thing depresses me more than no news at all because these types of stories usually end up leading no where. I would have rather have seen Kristen try and dig up some more information first, at least something confirming that the three of them were there and were in the building for some time.

But, here's where I disagree with you Simon. Yes, the show was cancelled on Fox because they didn't feel it had enough of an audience but I believe it's audience was bigger than BtVS and AtS and the shows popularity has since grown as it's success on DVD has shown. So I do think it would be a viable show to go after, especially after that nice little article mentioning that the WB letting Buffy go was a huge mistake, and the couple of articles that I saw saying this new network should try and get Joss Whedon to write a show for them.

I don't dispute that Firefly got bigger ratings than Buffy and Angel however Fox is a major network as opposed to the UPN and WB netlets (hark at my Variety speak). The bigger the network, the bigger the ratings a show has to get to stay on the air.

and the shows popularity has since grown as it's success on DVD has shown.


I would love to see a list of the best selling TV shows on DVD ever. I am very curious to see how Firefly would fare.

and the couple of articles that I saw saying this new network should try and get Joss Whedon to write a show for them.


Absolutely. But I think a brand new Joss show (with no past baggage) would have a better chance of getting put into production.
I'd rather have a verse supporter that has a 'half-full cup', rather than a gossip columnist who doesn't give two hoots for our favourite shows.

Well, 'half-full cup' implies optimism. I'm not sure Kristin is optimistic, she's just trying to scoop, and sometimes gets things-really, really important things, dead wrong. And if it saves my heart from being crushed every other week, I have to say I'd rather have a gossip columnist who doesn't give two hoots for our favorite shows than a fan who tries to get hopes up based on next to nothing. Of course, it's my own fault if I get my hopes up due to something a columnist says, but it's hard not to...
Firefly did quite badly in the ratings, make no mistake. Buffy did quite well - for a small network. At times, Buffy was outpacing Firefly, which is bad.

Of course, there are reasons for this - the show wasn't easy to market, by all accounts Fox made a monkies of that anyway, a Friday night slot and a network which didn't quite believe in the show at many levels anyway.

Firefly holds a special place in my heart - but lets face it, when the person who created it says "Firefly is dead", it's dead. Of course, it might appear in some other form - direct to DVD or whatever - but there's only so many times it is worth trying to rise from the ashes in a new format.

I'd would _love_ to see a new Joss show, and hope one day he has that spark again.

Totally agree with this. As much as I'd love to see Firefly come back, I think a fresh new show would be the best bet to have a chance at success.

Now, I do get that Fox was a bigger network, therefore needed the bigger numbers but what is the expectation for this new merged network? Will they expect similar audience sizes to what the WB and UPN had or will they have bigger audiences because more people will have access?
Wow, way too much harshness being funneled at Kristin here. I don't think that the siting of the firefly stars means anything at all. But she's someone who has continually hounded/annoyed studio folks for information on the shows we loved and helped give Joss fans -like herself- some visibility with studios. I've found her spoilers to be accurate and as for other stuff... hey - it's GOSSIP not the WSJ. Why burn bridges with a great Joss fan? And a fun, pithy columnist at that.
Gossi, you of all people know that when Joss said "Firefly is dead" he was saying that you can't recapture the same thing twice, not that he would never bring the Verse back to television.
Yes, but if you can't recapture the same thing twice, you risk jumping the shark.

Put it this way: I don't believe any of the powers that be are running around trying to save Firefly. Tim has a new show for Fox, Chris B is working for Zoic now, Joss has Wonder Woman/Goners/X-Men , Nathan has a feature film role etc. And I'm not saying that's a bad thing: I really do wish all involved the best of luck. The subtext, really, is that many fans cling to this idea that Firefly season 2 is about to be announced. It's not. Uhm, sorry. Maybe some new format will arrive, but in terms of a TV series return, I think it's dead in the water.

[ edited by gossi on 2006-02-08 19:08 ]
Hey, did you hear what Gossi said?
Serenity 2 was in the can

And then I read that he said
Firefly season 2 is about to be announced.

Spread the word!
Also Serenity 2 is due out tomorrow on Sci-Fi!

WAIT! STAR TREK'S COMING BACK! Holy crap, this is great! I've gotta get all my buddies together and...

Oh. You were making an example. =)
Also, some showrunners put mis-information out there intentionally, which could explain some of Kristin's "completely wrong" instances.
AmazonGirl, I've edited your post to make it easier to read. We've asked you a number of times to do this yourself. If you don't understand what we mean, drop us a line.
Maybe they're all doing guest stints on Veronica Mars or Smallville.
Of course, but that's such a boring way of putting it, don't you think? ;)

theonetruebix: yes, it shows you how bummed I was to see it's just another "Firefly is back!" rumor with a balsa wood foundation. As I said, nixygirl expressed my feelings on the topic.

How about this instead: they were in the building to meet for lunch!

Seriously, though, they are friends, and if they were seen leaving together, it doesn't mean they were there together for some business meeting, though the promo stuff gossi mentioned sounds reasonable. I also agree that Firefly as it was is extremely unlikely, and an attempt to recreate the exact circumstances is doomed to failure, unless it includes Fox in charge and as uninterested as ever, in which case you get an exact repeat of history, airing (if we're lucky) ten new episodes...
From the second paragraph of the post, I knew it had to be ZachsMind. As always, wonderful to read your posts...
My name is coolpeace, and I am Firefly addict ;-)


Welcome coolpeace, how long have you been sober for?
As for new Joss shows, who's with me in thinking Fray would be a great show?
:))) Nixy (can I call you nixy?), this is one addiction I don't try to curb too strongly ... ahhh, the pleasure it brings, my dvd's are never too far or too long away from me.

Although, intellectually I do understand that Firefly should not fly again. It could never be recreated as it was, that chapter is over. However, other stories within that 'verse would be pleasing enough.

Or, any new Joss.
Oh wouldn't they tho? I miss a good Joss show.
Also, please do call me Nixy, everyone does ; D
Call me insane, but I actually still think our best shot at more (filmed, not comics) 'verse is Serenity II, in theaters. And I wouldn't expect any time sooner than, say, after the next Presidential election -- or two, as the popularity of this thing slowly but surely increases.

Maybe President Obama will have a special screening in the White House. (See, told you I was a dreamer!)
