Who remembers Firefly? The unfortunately short-lived TV series and film adaptation has gained a cult following in the decade since we last visited the Serenity. Its about time the Browncoats rejoiced… a fan made teaser trailer has arrived to give us a glimpse into what might have been. The trailer, which you can watch below, comes courtesy of artist Stephen Byrne.
It may not be a real show but it would give fans something to both reminisce over as well as speculate as to the crew’s adventures after Serenity.
For those who are not familiar with the show, Firefly is space western. Set 500 years in the future after a universal civil war, the crew of a small transport spaceship takes any job so long as it puts food on the table. The disparate men and women just want to survive and maybe have better lives, but they face constant challenges on the new frontier, such as the Reavers — flesh-eating mongrels who live on the fringes of the universe. Everything from the set up, to universal politics and interplay between the characters is top notch. The only thing in recent years to even come close to this is The Expanse. Suffice to say, if you haven’t experienced Firefly yet, you really should try this brilliant series.
