FireflyFirefly joins SCI FI Friday line-up
Tuesday 24 May 2005, by Webmaster
The SCI FI Channel will add FOX’s short-lived science fiction series Firefly to its popular Friday night line-up this summer, The Futon Critic is reporting. Reruns of the show’s 15 episodes will begin on July 22.
Firefly appears to be taking over Andromeda’s 7 p.m. Eastern/Pacific timeslot, just ahead of Stargate SG-1’s all-new ninth season. (Two episodes are scheduled for July 29, at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.)
Firefly is a quirky space series with a Western flavor from Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon, and stars Nathan Fillion as Captain Malcolm Reynolds. The show was a hit with fans, whose post-cancellation support led to the production of the feature film Serenity, due in theaters this September.
Co-star Adam Baldwin ("Jayne Cobb") appeared on Stargate SG-1 as Colonel Dave Dixon in Season Seven’s "Heroes." Jewel Staite ("Kaylee Frye") will appear as a Wraith in an upcoming episode of Stargate Atlantis, "Instinct."
