BoingBoing alerts us that FireFly fans have created a website to raise money for a 2nd season (brilliant design blares sound so you might want to turn off your speakers). Last night they had raised $346. This morning they report that they’ve raised $840. Wish I could earn money like that! But for Whedon they have a long way to go ($24 million is the target – I only want $125k for myself). The site shows this quote:
“As long as I was able to service the characters with integrity and had enough money so that I wasn’t hampered, then I would love to return Serenity to TV. I love that universe; it continues and those characters live on. There could be a series, there could be a miniseries, there could be all sorts of things. I’m not ruling anything out. I’ll let it simmer for a while and see if anyone calls.” -Joss Whedon
Firefly (amz) and Serenity (amz) were awesome. I think we can help the cause by purchasing as many DVDs of the series and movie as possible and create a larger fan base. I have little optimism that the show or even another movie would ever come about. Here’s hoping! Of course, wouldn’t it be ironic if a second season started then was cancelled?
