Aired: 2002-2003; Feature Film
Maybe I’m only suggesting “Firefly” because I know it’s likely an impossibility — Joss Whedon has a lucrative film career now, after all — but this one-season wonder would be a fascinating contender for a reboot, if only because fans have been clamoring for it for so long. The story of “Firefly” ends, sort of, with the film “Serenity” — but because that world was so rich, it would be totally possible to find a way to explore the ‘verse of “Firefly” with new characters in a different storyline. Ideally, of course, you’d get River Tam (Summer Glau) as the captain of her own ship, with her compatriots all scattered to the wind, living her renegade life the way Mal (Nathan Fillion) taught her how. But there’s plenty of other pirates in the black to tell stories about.
