I'd watch that. Unfortunately, there's nearly no way on earth that Disney would MAKE that.
Oh of course, that’s part of why I’m opposed to a reboot. Because it’s Disney, is it would be a new cast PG family friendly reboot that is Firefly in name only, and the premise just isn’t interesting enough to warrant that.

Cheated on his ex wife apparently while preaching feminism. Unless he's done something else idk about.
That all was a while ago. The latest Whedon cancellation comes from him apparently being terrible to work with during the reshoots on Justice League. The cast appear to be loyal to Snyder's vision, and have nothing nice to say about Whedon (I'm not clear on the details, not being a fan of celebrity gossip, in spite of just here just now perpetrating it).

Ah ok didn't know that.

Remember, the original was broadcast TV, and so was.. PG family friendly.

See, I disagree completely with this. The time has never been better for a sequel show.

There will never be a right time for a reboot, because the premise is all that’s left in a reboot, and that isn’t what is good about Firefly.

But 15 years later, River is the pilot, Zoe has a teenage kid, Mal is ready to retire and own some land somewhere way out on the edge of known space, and some specter of their past comes back to haunt them? That’s a good show.
Well... it could be a good show.

Hiya!

ReBoot = Heck NO!

New Series taking place after the Serenity movie with all new characters only tangentially related to the originals? = Sure, I'd be down with that. Especially if Joss is the one helming most of the writing and whatnot. Like him or not, as a person, he writes damn interesting and fun characters and stories! :)

And you can forget about the original cast getting together, even for cameos. Some of them may just not do it for one reason or another, and you can believe Adam Baldwin won't be allowed anywhere near it (just imagine the backlash from fans if he did).
If they do a reboot, instead of a sequel, I could easily see Wes Chatham slotting into the role of Jayne Cobb.

And thus - none of the content was actually all that mature, because broadcast has limits on content.
There was a prostitute selling her services openly with the crew. there may not have been flesh but arguing it was not mature content is a bit silly.

I'm hopeful it could be a good show. The mandalorian shows that Disney get's that western type scifi can do well. With the right director and cast it could work. I would be at least moderately hopeful if they do try it.

And that's not the only thing. The "wife" assassin. Kicking someone into a running engine. Jayne not thinking shooting someone is good enough, so proceeding to bash his head repeatedly into the ground... I agree.

I’m really of two minds on this. On the one hand, Firefly was lightning in a bottle, a rare instance combining both talent and luck where the characters just work together on screen right out of the gate. Even characters like Mal, blessed as he was with a showy deliberately fake diction that was marvelous.

On the other hand, we got to see precious little of the story, even with the wrap-up film.

So... why not? Just do it. Art is hard and nothing is sacrosanct. More Firefly will probably be bad — because most things are — but maybe it’ll be good.
