... that will be following the cast as they reunite at Comic Con this weekend for the 10th anniversary of the show.

Firefly is getting a shiny new TV special.

To celebrate the cult-favorite sci-fi drama’s 10th anniversary, Science Channel is shooting a new one-hour special chronicling the Firefly cast reunion at Comic-Con this week.

The special — titled Browncoats Unite — will include footage from Friday’s reunion panel, featuring several members of the original team including star Nathan Fillion and creator Joss Whedon. Plus, the cast is shooting an in-depth behind-the-scenes roundtable interview that will dive deeper into burning fan questions about the beloved series. Both the panel and the roundtable will be moderated by Entertainment Weekly‘s own Jeff Jensen.

“Firefly is a landmark work of science fiction and a favorite with our viewers,” said Debbie Myers, general manager and executive vp of Science. “Ever since it premiered on Science, fans have asked us to do something special to mark its 10-year anniversary. With this signature celebration, punctuated by Browncoats Unite, we will connect the minds behind this classic franchise with its legions of passionate fans.”

In addition to Whedon and Fillion, Friday’s 12:30 p.m. Comic-Con panel will feature Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher, showrunner Tim Minear, and writer Jose Molina. The special, produced by Pangolin Pictures, promises to unearth defining memories and first-person accounts of making the show from both sides of the camera. Browncoats Unite will air on Science, along with an all-day marathon of Firefly episodes, on Sunday, Nov. 11.

I'm actually quite relieved. I find it hard to believe that they could recapture the magic, it's been far too long.

Always been tempted to watch Firefly. Don't want to be disappointed if it doesn't have a satisfying ending though. :(

The series ends abruptly, sure. But the film Serenity ties everything together and actually draws proper conclusion.

i wouldn't argue that fact, but the series just ends, without Serenity it just ends.

so yeah, if your going to watch Firefly get Serenity too.

I thought this, I thought all the hype will be too much and it won't live up my expectations, I knew so many people complained about it ending, wanting more. Then I watched it and felt exactly the same :( It's so, so good.

Yeah, it's a really interesting universe they created and although the Whedonisms come fast and thick the characters are all fantastic. Serenity was a nice end to the series though. It rounds off a lot of character arcs and provides a satisfying conclusion to the Reaper storyline.

Still wanted more though.
