ABOUT FIREFLY (as if you didn't know)

Firefly is an award‐winning show created by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dr Horrible) that stars Nathan Fillion (Castle, Serenity), Gina Torres (Suits, The Matrix Reloaded) and Alan Tudyk (Frozen, I Robot, Wreck it Ralph). Set five hundred years in the future it details the life of a renegade crew who fought on the losing side of a civil war and who must now live on the fringes of society, avoiding warring factions and authority agents. It was sadly cancelled after one season but in the fourteen years since Firefly aired the show has reached cult status.
