Alan Tudyk And Nathan Fillion Have Differing Thoughts On A Firefly Reboot
By WITNEY SEIBOLD
Joss Whedon’s “Firefly” may have had a small audience when it initially aired its single season, but it has since grown a huge cult following. Though the show’s follow-up film, “Serenity,” underperformed at the box office, fans haven’t stopped talking about the series’ return, and two of the show’s stars, Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk, have different opinions on the subject.
After 14 episodes of a TV show and a feature film, Fillion feels that he and his fellow cast members said everything they needed to. “I honestly don’t think that there’s going to be another Firefly iteration. I had an amazing time on ‘Firefly.’ It was the best job I’d ever had,” said Fillion, adding that the movie gave closure and allowed the cast to “have a nice kind of final goodbye.”
However, Tudyk thinks more can be done with the “Firefly” premise, saying, “I’m for a Firefly reboot, personally. But it’s going to have to be in a while. It’s going to take a little time. I like the idea of it in another 10 years or so.” Tudyk’s idea is the return of Fillion’s character, older and forced back into the smuggling life, adding “he can put the band back together” along with some fresh new faces.
