Firefly Returning to Cable; Fillion Says He'd Play Mal Again

The Science Channel has acquired the rights to the cult-hit and will air the series in its short-lived entirety, plus some new extras. Science Channel will wrap each episode with interstitial segments starring renowned physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, who will discuss the theoretical science behind the show’s sci-fi concepts.

In honor of this occasion, star Nathan Fillion took a brief break from shooting ABC’s Castle today to jump on the phone and answer five Firefly questions.

I'm having a hard time being very excited by this. I mean, I have all of the episodes on both DVD and blu-ray, so I can't really be excited about seeing it on TV with commercials again. The most exciting thing is the potential to bring in more fans, and possibly get support for another movie.

Nathan Fillion is always great with the fans, and I'm sure if the time ever comes for the browncoats to return, he'll be first in line.

I can actually hear my geek card being torn up as I type this, but I didn't *love* Firefly the way everyone else seems to *love* Firefly. :( Guess I'm just more of a Buffy girl.

That said, I'll probably tune in to catch some of the extras.

Awesome, will be recording it. My only taste of Firefly has been Serenity. Looking forward to more! Plus, I'm a big fan of Nathan Fillion.

I told my friend Firefly was coming back to tv and he got all silent on me. Then I told him they weren't new episodes.

He hates me now.

Ha! Evil minds think alike, I did the same thing to a friend yesterday. :P

Such a shame this only got one series, it had so much scope.
