Firefly is one of the few shows that are alive still only because the fans of the series love it so much. The Josh Weadon series is set five hundred years in the future and it’s a whole new frontier, and it follows the crew of a spaceship called Serenity as they take any job legal or illegal, but everything gets rocky when a mysterious girl and her brother a doctor come aboard the ship. Firefly was sadly canceled just after one season by Fox, but the fans loved it so much that Firefly became the only series that launched a whole franchise without any connection from the network it aired on. So, if you miss the series here are some shows and movies you could watch to pass the time and wait for a Firefly reboot.
