One year ago almost to the day, the web was filled with this quote:

"There’s no sequel, no secret project regarding Serenity or somesuch and I’m not even sure how anyone thought there was talk there. So let’s put that to bed and smother it with a pillow" says Whedon. [Source, WHEDONesque, a community weblog discussing the work of TV maker Joss Whedon]

So, it is not without irony that today we get the announcement of a possible Serenity 2.

According to the guys over at Moviehole, Tudyk told them that a sequel could be happening. … the way Tudyk talks it sounds like the entire cast would be more than willing to come back. That includes Nathan Fillion, the crew’s intrepid Captain Tightpants. [Source, Cinema Blend]

Coincidentally, I was listening to the Serenity soundtrack on XM’s Cinemagic just the other day thinking it is about time to re-watch Serenity. I would really love to see another movie! Somehow I doubt we will ever seen Serenity 2. I really wanted to see the series continue because it seemed like they had some serious subplots setup that needed to be played out. I didn’t realize Alan Tudyk played Sonny in I, Robot! (Are they really considering a sequel to I, Robot?!)

Psst. Glenn, Ben..over here.

I’d settle for a straight-to-DVD Serenity sequel if that’s all they can give us. I miss Firefly. You have to wonder if it premiered these days, instead of a few years ago, if it would’ve done better. Or worse, given the networks’ three-episodes-to-sink-or-swim attitude.

Tough call. I would say that which network it premiered on might make a difference but Eureka is on Scifi and doing well. I love Eureka but I don’t see why it survives when Firefly didn’t.
