The onscreen pilot, who just so happened to be killed off in the feature film Serenity, visited Jossie on set of his new tv show S.H.I.E.L.D. the other day. The pair chatted about their glory days and the conversation must have inevitably turned to their fan favorite tale of smugglers and renegades, because Tudyk left the exchange with a ton of optimism.
When asked about the future of the series, this is what he had to say:
“I really think there’s a chance that it[a Firefly resurrection] could happen. I think that as we go forward, as it gets cheaper to shoot in digital … yeah, I hope so. We all want it.
I don’t know how they’d explain Wash’s sudden return from the grave, but I suppose that doesn’t really matter. I don’t care if they use black magic or George Lucas levels of ret-conning, just bring back the entire cast!
That’s hoping for the best, though. Just in case Whedon still has an itchy trigger finger, we should probably sacrifice a few geeky virgins and a packet of sour straws at the Altar of Joss. Neither should be hard to find.
