Fox already brought more episodes of X-Files and Prison Break before, but some fans are wondering if there's a chance that they would reboot Firefly. Creator Joss Whedon's sci-fi western was canceled after its first season, but the story was continued in a film titled Serenity. Fans of the show, a.k.a. Browncoats, have been wishing for the franchise's revival since's cancellation. And while many believe that it's too late for a second season, Fox Broadcasting President of Entertainment, David Madden is open to more Firefly if Whedon is.

While at the panel at last month's TCA 2017, Madden told Rotten Tomatoes that he's open for a Firefly reboot (via TV Overmind). but Madden only wants it if Whedon is involved. It would be awesome to see fresher episodes of this beloved sci-fi western franchise, and I'm sure its former cast members would be open to reunite in a new show, but the Avengers: Age of Ultron director is currently busy making films.

After Age of Ultron was released in theaters, Whedon told Collider: "there are rights [issues] between Fox and Universal because one had the show and one had the movie, so it gets a little funky fresh with that."
