If you’re one of the few who remembers the TV show Firefly and who’s been hoping against hope that it would return, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that it’s coming back! The bad news is that it’s not coming back as a TV show, but instead as a series of novels – still pretty good, if you’re a fan, I’d imagine. Here’s the series’ commissioning editor Cat Camacho in a statement:
“[I am] delighted to be bringing new, official stories to fans of a show that has continued to grow in popularity over the years, finding new audiences in an unprecedented way. Firefly is a hugely unique IP and Titan Books is excited to be becoming part of its legacy.”
The first book in the new series is Firefly: Big Damn Hero, which comes out in October, followed by The Magnificent Nine and Generations in 2019. For now, you can get more details on the series right here.
