Not many shows that were canceled after half a season â€” during which some of the episodes werenâ€™t even aired in the right order â€” are celebrated 10 years later. But Firefly has stood the test of time, attracting a devoted following that was strong enough to spawn a successful big-screen adaptation, 2005â€™s Serenity.
The fans, who call themselves Browncoats in honor of lead character Malcolm Reynoldsâ€™ past as a rebel soldier, will want to be glued to their TVs tonight at 10 when Science presents Browncoats Unite, a 10th anniversary special commemorating the show. It will include footage from the castâ€™s reunion at last summerâ€™s Comic-Con in San Diego. Stars Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Sean Maher and Summer Glau were on hand, as was creator Joss Whedon.
Science is treating fans to a full marathon of the series running all day today, beginning at 7am.
